Kayla Mae Olmstead

Kayla was born with Left-sided Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (LCDH). When she was born she was in the NICU for a total of 55 days. She reherniated two years later, had her repair surgery in May 2011 and spent 11 days in hospital recovering. She is a tough little girl and we are truly blessed to have her here.

Doll Attack

Kayla: give me my doll .. please please please.

Kayla: no no no I don't want this!! take it back, take it back, take it back!

Silly girl can't make up her mind- hmmmmm :)

So if anyone out there thinks I'm crazy bc I change my blog so much I'm sorry. My husband picks on me all the time for changing the background too much. I need change- I can't stay the same with anything. He hates it when I say I need a change bc I usually mean the living room or our bedroom.. haha he is such a perfectionist that change isn't really in the books for him.. once it's done to his liking, it's done. :)

So the other day- off the topic of Kayla- my mother whom I go to everyday for help with Kayla in care, broke her humerus (sp?) .. the "upper arm bone". Her slipper caught in the door way and she didnt' stop .. she just landed right on her shoulder on cement. She is in quite a bit of pain.. and she is not allowed to hold Kayla for 6-8 weeks.. my sister is about to have a baby and Mom was supposed to go down and help- but she can't now. :( My mom is very sad. First time she has ever broken anything.. Kayla will be very sad as she loves her Nina.

As for Kayla- she is still not eating so well.. she is on the Reglan and the Zantac 3x daily but will still only take 4oz per feed. She gets 24-26oz in.. which is good, I usually strive for 25.. bc she is on the 24 cal formula- but I'm wondering if she is gaining enough weight now. Makes me worry- and last night.. she went from around 7:30p.m. to 7:30a.m. with out peeing.. I was freaking out. The line on her diaper was still yellow.. her diaper was completely dry. She did have 5-6 wet diapers today.. and she pooped.. but I am worried about this peeing deal.
