Jaykayla was born with pulmonary atresia. This means that no pulmonary valve exists in her heart. Consequently, blood cannot flow from the right ventricle into the pulmonary artery and then on to the lungs. Children with this condition require lifelong cardio care and are also at high risk of developing infections in the heart walls or valves. Jaykayla has endured two heart surgeries by the time she was two years old and requires breathing treatments. She must also visit her cardiologist frequently.
During her shopping spree at Wal-Mart, Jaykayla picked out some games for her Wii, her Nintendo DS and even picked out a PSP handheld system and some games to go with it. Jaykayla also brought home many High School Musical and Hannah Montana items including clothes, sheet sets and other decorations for her room.
Now that she’s done shopping, Jaykayla only wants to play with her new electronic games. Her particular favorite was the PSP handheld system that she picked out; she rotates her playing between the three game systems and loves it so much that she has even asked her mother if she could stay home from school to play with her games! (The answer, of course, was no.)
