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.

Thanks for your post on our blog. I took a look at yours and what a precious little girl you have! It looks like she's doing well and that's absolutely wonderful!

Yes, I had fetal surgery because my baby's CDH was so severe. The doctors told me early on that he wouldn't survive if I went to term without doing anything. It's an experimental surgery where they place a balloon in the baby's trachea. What this does is cause fluid to accumulate in the lungs and causes them to grow, hopefully pushing the stomach, intestines and liver back where they should be. They will take out the balloon in a couple weeks at which point they hope that his lungs have grown enough to survive once he's born. After he's born he will have the surgery to repair the diaphragm. So far things have gone well...which is great. There have been some successes with this surgery and we're hoping and praying for the best.
