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.

Happy Anniversary- Dr's day.... :(

So today I finally got fed up with Kayla's reflux issues and I called my Pediatrician. I got an appt. today and Kayla has only gained 3oz in 12 days. Not soo good.. so as my doc listened to Kayla she said she heard BOWEL SOUNDS!! So Kayla got yet another one of those AWFUL x-rays and I asked to look as I know what it should look like. Instantly I started crying as it did not look the same as it did when Dr. in Syracuse said everything looked good. So I'm in an awful panik... Doc calls about 2 hrs later saying the radiologist says it does not appear to be a reherniation- however he needed to see a prior x-ray to be certain. My thought- I have seen both- I know what good one looks like.. and this wasn't it. So next week- July 15- we go down to Syracuse to see our surgeon who can tell me for sure. As of now they aren't worried - I am- but they believe it is mainly her reflux- so they put her on Reglan 3x/day and upped her Zantac to 3x/day. Jer and I are freaking out! Her appt isn't for a whole week!!

Looks happy enough- haha- prolly bc she is wearing a Giants bib... :)

On the happier side- Three years ago today- Jerry and I got married. We were married in a catholic church in Canton which was a church I have always dreamed of getting married in. The ceremony was great- but the priest kept calling me Katelyn... so when Jer had to say his vows- he called me Katelyn too- everyone LAUGHED and LAUGHED! :)
oh how i would love my pre-baby body back.. haha Our Sand Castle Cake- it was to remind of VA Beach.. :) This is a dance my brother ALWAYS does- the thumb thing, so Jerry and my cousin Jim joined him... haha they are dumb! My siblings- my bachorlette party was a big picture fest- and quite often we posed in the Charlie's Angels poses.. so we did it for my wedding!! haha My dad is funny- I have no clue who he is calling a loser- prolly one of his kids.. haha but at my wedding and I have it on tape- he was dancing next to Ang, my sister and he punched her.. it was sooooo funny!! so glad it was caught on video- guess i should send it to Funniest Home Videos. :) haha

I am praying it is nothing serious. Nayeli is on the same meds same dosage. She still pukes but not as much as she was when she was 2 mos and 3 mos. I will be praying that your appt next weeks goes well. I dont think I could wait that long either.
give that warrior princess a hug and a kiss for me
she is adorable! I love the bib!
