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.

I'm Growing, I'm Growing!

I'm going to be a...

It's official...! We will have another little one around Aug. 17.  Now is the time the diaphragm grows, so please pray that this time we get a whole diaphragm! Only complication so far is my under-active thyroid which was caught in time to get me on medication! We are hoping that is the only complication through this whole pregnancy!

So please pray for that diaphragm to grow! :)

Praying for all you CDHer's out there to get rid of that RSV you may have or already have picked up! Praying all is well for everyone!! Wishing it was summer too! :(

Jennifer- I would say "here's to a boring pregnancy" too, but with Kate-- NOTHING is boring!! I mean, this is a girl who despite all the drama with Kayla at birth, she decided to have a kidney stone on top of all that... she'll find something, or something will find her. :) Kate- no baby drama this time-- I am too tired to worry!!!!! LOVE YOU!
