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.

trying to sit up!
It's been very quiet around here- we are finally getting some nice sunny, hot days. K is doing great now.. I've been hesitant to write this blog for a while- K is back on track with feeding. She now eats 5oz a bottle- and gets her 25oz needed. Sometimes she'll surprise me and go up to 28oz. She is also eating a full serving of rice cereal every morning- and a full container of a fruit or veggie at night. So she is getting extra calories there. She is slowly gaining weight now, she is up to 14lbs 10oz... no piggy like Charlie tho! :) Way to go Charlie!! haha
Other than that- she is doing great. We are practicing to sit up- and trying to find our feet.
Please pray for Rafa and Max.. two babies fighting their way through this CDH monster right now!!
