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.

Old Pictures

Last night, Kayla, Lily and I were looking through pictures on my phone.  They love to look at pictures- anyway- we got to the pictures of Kayla in the hospital this past May....Kayla first asked what that thing in her nose was- which made me believe she doesn't remember a thing.  Which is good.  Very good.  In fact, great!  But then she saw all the pictures, and she kept saying "aww, I'm sad" in the saddest voice. Soo we had to stop looking at the pictures because I was about to cry.

She does remember a little- she cried and cried when we took her to see Deda at the hospital when the nurse came in to change his IV's.. my fault tho, I told her to hold up her hands.. bad joke. Way too soon.  So she remembers a little.. but she did very, very well at her x-ray a couple weeks ago- no tears.

I guess there really is no point to this post.  I was just thinking of how well she is doing.  Almost 3. And every day... she seems older and bigger to me.  I love her so- and I am truly thankful to have her here with me.

happy! :)
