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.

Fat Lip

The other night, Jerry and I were fixing our plates at the kitchen counter while the girls had already started nibbling on their dinners.  (Jerry and I wanted something spicy, so we didn't have what the girls had)  All of a sudden, we hear "BANG" followed by an instant hysterical cry.  We turn to look and see Kayla on her back on a broken chair... I assume her back was hurt in the fall since it broke the chair..

So I immediately run over, pick her up and pull up her shirt.. nothing.  So I let her turn around for a comfort me hug and she is bleeding big time in her mouth- as soon as we saw the blood- her lip swelled- 

And this was one of the times K was eating.. really eating.. ravioli after ravioli with a small bribery of goldfish- she got three fish for every ravioli.. hey- no judging- she was eating! Then she fell. However, after the fall and some ice and comfort.. she asked for her bag of fish and ate a TON of fish.  She was spoiled the rest of the night.  

The next day- she was fine.  Never once complained.. even tho Jer and I were worried and kept saying how awful it looked.  When you asked her about her lip, she would say "I fell down and broke my chair.  I have a fat lip." And loved to get her pic taken to see her lip... :) 

She was showing the camera her lollipop- she's lucky it didn't touch the lens... :) But in this pic, you can see the black and blue on the outside- looks the same inside! ouch!
