Two Drops

...is all we were able to collect of pee-pee from Mia at the doctor's office. We went today to see our awesome pediatrician, Dr. Young (www.youngpediatrics.com) so that Mia could have her urine cultured to make sure her UTI is gone. After we get a negative result, we are supposed to schedule for a VCUG to make sure she doesn't have something called reflux which could be the cause of her UTI and if left untreated would possibly cause many more. It also checks for anatomic anomalies in case that may have been what predisposed her to a UTI. I'm not happy about having the test done, as I understand its painful and involves catheterizing her...again. I asked if we could just wait and if she got a second UTI then schedule the VCUG but Dr. Young is fairly sure she needs to have it done, even after just one. I am sad for Mia.
During the appointment today, Dr. Young said we could try to use a collection bag instead of a catheter to collect Mia's tickles for the lab (you must have a negative culture before the VCUG or you'd risk exposing the kidneys to infected urine). She warned me however that the bag doesn't work so well for little girls and sure enough, when Mia went potty, it all drained out of the bag and into her diaper. There was literally, two drops of tinkle in the bag. Dr. Young gave me the choice to A) try to send the two drops and see if the lab would attempt to culture that, and if they could not, then we would need to return later in the week and try again or B) just catheterize her now and collect the urine and be certain they had enough. I decided to take our chances with the two drops. It's worth the wasted time and gas to avoid putting her through invasive proceedures.
Now to add to the fun of the night, Kambree is sporting a fever of 103. Good times. She is in my bedroom, sleeping with me for the night (as do all our little ones when they are ill) but her yelling has woken her sister, Mia (who camps in our bedroom every night due to her age). I've given Bree Tylenol but so far, it hasn't made a dent. I'm really hoping I don't end up back at the dr.'s office with two little ones later in the week. And I hope that I can get Mia back to sleep. Tomorrow is Drew's birthday and we're taking him out to eat...pending Bree's fever status...so I have toenails to paint and need to scour my closet looking for something to wear that doesn't look so...well...postpartum and frumpy. Not an easy task when you're three months post delivery yet still significantly overweight.
And I can't believe my first baby is going to be 15 years old in a few hours!

Oh shoot! Do you think Bree could have what Mia had? What do the doctors say? HOLY!

Saying prayers that both girls feel much better in the morning.

Always here praying!
2 Corinthians 1:3-5 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

Ang...you are amazingly beautiful, so stop worring. And besides, I'm still trying to loose my postpartum weight and my baby is 343 months old. Go figure.

Love you,
Mom
