Achondroplasia. She has not had a single health issue. So when she quit eating last week I took her to the Dr. Ears were fine, strep test was negative. No fever, nothing. They said sometimes with bladder issues babies will quit eating and they may not know to say that their stomach hurts. Which is really their bladder?? So we had to get a pee sample. I made her sit on her potty until she did it. She screamed and cried it sucked a whole lot. She refuses to use the potty chair. Today the Dr called to tell me she has a urinary tract infection. They think this also may be why she won't pee in the potty, not just because she is the most stubborn baby you will ever set your two eyes on LOL So she started 10 days of antibiotics tonight. Then on the 22nd she has to go back to Children's Hospital and have an ultra sound on her kidney's followed by a VCUG. I called my sister and completely fell apart about this. I hate that she has been in pain and I just thought she was being stubborn. I hate that I beg her every. damn. day. to use the potty. She screams and cries and I never make her [except to get the sample] but I hate that I keep bugging her and she didn't know to tell me it hurts. I hope once again she shows them that she is fine. We used to go to a team of specialists. We paid 5 Dr's copays plus the hospital copay every month! They all told us how perfect she was so we quit going. Our regular Dr. only charges us one copay and she tells us how perfect Carlee is. :) I do not like Children's Hospital and all and I HATE that I have to take Carlee there. I want her kidney's to function perfectly and I want this to be nothing more that a waste of time again.
Thanks for stopping by today! Please pray for Carlee that her kidneys are just fine. I can't keep falling apart about this. Like my sister said they don't give really sick babies 10 days of antibiotics at home. All I have to do is be sure to get the next 10 days of doses in her to get this UTI fixed. THEN I can worry about what the US and X-rays show. I see lots of snuggle time coming up. YIPPEE!! That's my favorite!
