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.

When pigs fly??

So earlier I posted how Kayla may have reherniated. Well we had our doctor's appt yesterday and she was completely fine. Our surgeon, Dr. Ratner listened to her and didn't hear bowels up in her chest.. and he sent over the x-ray to have his radiologist look at it. Apparently I am not an expert in reading x-rays. All I know is the two I saw did not look the same... anyway Kayla is doing just fine, except the whole eating deal. Dr. Ratner told me to keep doing what I was doing as 25 oz on her 24 cal formula is just fine.
She is now 13lbs 13oz...SLOWLY gaining, but gaining. :)

Kayla loves to stand. :) She is as happy as can be at her appt.

Maybe this is a sign. She'll reherniate when pigs fly??? :)
