Ok ladies, it's .Monday which means .Adrianas follow up appointment is today. I've got 3 lil baggie type things that .I have to somehow tape to my daughter lol, but .I haven't got the slightest idea and of course there are no instructions. I should just call the clinic, but the nurse that is there is still suggesting the catheter. Over my dead body!
So has anyone used this before? I'm going to check medical sights and see if there are any diagrams lol. Eeeeek. This is going to be an experience.
Lol, i'm gonna have pee up to my eyebrows! I'll probably end up letting her scoot around the floor w/o a diaper on and follow her with my little cup they gave me to put the urine in! Because they will .N.O.T catheterize my child again.
Well, she's sitting right now, and the foam part, is in a .U shape, and .I put the closed end at the top, so the bottom part was open....But that's hard to do. And .I set her up instead of laying her down, .I guess because of how it's on there. I never use anything on her lil hinder, but .I still washed her off good with an antiseptic towel.
They are concerned and determined to get her pee because of her .U.T.I, so they are just making sure it's gone. She got her antibiotic religiously, she didn't miss a drop...And she's not been at all sick since, so .I'm sure it's gone. But even if .I'm not able to get any, or they don't think it's enough they will wait another day, because they will not do that again. I agree they need to test her again, but they will do it my way or not at all. And hell yeah .I'm gonna tell them the pee is fresh lol. They will use what they get! I've got 3 bags and 2 jars...So .I should be able to get it. I put one on her now in hopes she will pee, so if .I get any .I'll save it, and put another bag on and if .I end up getting more, .I'll use the freshest. Geez, what a topic! Lol
ok lol. If .I go through my 3 bags and still get nothing, at least .I have a back up plan, thanks to .Kia!
Laura, she's been off her meds for a week and a half now, but they scheduled her appointment for today, instead of last week...Because she also has her 9 month check up...So we combined. So .I gave her a break from all the fluids lol. She got frustrated with me because she wanted food!
Thanks for the help ladies.
I hope .Adriana listens to ya .Laura lol. Right now she's layin' on the couch drinking/playing with her bottle. She should be hungry because she took a long nap, but she's not seriously drinking her bottle. I've discovered she'll drink more if she does it herself. If either of us hold her and give her a bottle, she pushes it out of her mouth after a couple of ounces. Stubborn lil girl knows what she wants!
Poor bebe!! You tell my lil girl she better get better soon!
As for the cath, trust me .Mandi, I know... But the thing is...
If its not fresh, it may not show things they need to see as urine sterilizes after a certain amount of time.
If they cant get the sample they need to make sure shes better, then i'd (as painful as it is) let the do the cath just so you can be 100% sure shes over it. Its not worth letting her get it again if it wasnt treated all the way. It can scar her kidneys and lead to renal failure later in life.
And remember, she wont remember any of it after tomorrow.
Ok, well there were a few dribbles in the bag, but most of it was absorbed into the foam, so I sqeezed it outta there into the jar, so will it be ok to use? It was a sterile bag. Im taking it anyways, and I have another bag on her...So hmmm, we'll see. I've gotta leave in about minutes.
