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.

love and sleep



A loving Kayla- she has been great since we have been home- more like herself.  She has her moments- I think she is scared to poop (maybe pushing hurts?) and I don't think she likes to cough.  :( But she's doing great otherwise.  She has had some difficulty sleeping- maybe she got used to the wake ups at the hospital and expects to be woken?? Or maybe she's dreaming about the surgery??  But she wakes up screaming and crying- last night Jer went in to rock her, and a couple hours later, I did too.  I feel awful for her... hoping she sleeps a little better tonight.  Nap times have been great for her- they too seemed to always be interrupted.. so hopefully it will calm down for her soon.
