I have a sick little girl

Recommended Posts

Here I am wondering if I should bother to go to bed and get some sleep or wait until my daughter wakes up screaming again. Poor little thing. She is 3 years old and has a raging bladder infection. We sent a urine sample away today, but she is complaining of pain, she is running to the bathroom constantly, she has been peeing her pants at times, and sometimes makes it to the bathroom but pees all over the floor.

 

Once she was potty trained, she never had any problems with peeing the bed. I think she only had a couple incidents and she woke up right away crying that she had to go pee. Well, now she has been peeing the bed too. Yesterday she wet her panties and peed on the floor. She was so upset, so she went and got one of the pull ups we still have and put that on. We went out for supper and she didn't want to take off the pull up to go. Finally we got her back in panties but as soon as we got home she changed into another pull up. About half an hour after she fell asleep in my bed, she must have had a bit of a dribble since one of the shapes were slightly smeared, but not gone.

 

Today I got her in to the Dr, we did get some antibiotics for her since I had dipped her urine at home and told the Dr that it shows a bladder infection. Once the results come back from the lab saying it is an infection (probably Mon), then she will have to go for an ultrasound of the bladder and kidneys.

 

After I got her to bed tonight, she has woke up several times screaming and crying., and saying she is sick and she is burning up. I think that the Tylenol I gave her has kicked in right now, so hopefully she will sleep for a bit now. When she wakes up then I try to console her and I rub her back or her hair and I sing to her until she falls asleep. You just feel so helpless when they are sick sometimes. You give them Tylenol or other meds depending on what is happening, and just hope that it helps.

 

Well, I think that I jsut might try and get a few winks before the Tylenol wears off!!! Good-night!

Poor baby, its so hard to see them ill and not be able to do anything about it to stop their pain. Just keep cuddling and singing to her. Hope she feels better soon.

Poor baby - they are horrible I used to get them all the time - hopefully they'll give her some antibiotics and it'll sort it out quickly

Hope you got a little sleep and the antibiotics are kicking in.

 

My 7 year old has had bladder infections. You need to be aware that your little one may be more likely to get them and keep her hydrated. Whenever my oldest doesn't get enough to drink during the day, I can see the symptoms starting. (I also have a friend with a 9 year old, same thing)

 

I make sure she drinks lots of water, sometimes with a touch of cranberry juice as well. She's a lot more aware now that she's older. But when she was younger, I would watch the color of the urine to make sure it was clear or pale.

 

When your daughter starts school, you need to make sure she has access to water breaks as well. Our school requires kids to bring large bottle of water for frequent water breaks so I know she's getting a lot.

 

Take care and rest up (both of you). My experience is that the first infection is the worst because you are aware of the symptoms and catch it before it becomes worse or develops at all.

 

Lots and Lots of H2O

Oh no - poor baby! Sounds like you may have a small set back in potty training. It just hurts my heart to hear that the little ones are sick. Did you try a lukewarm bath? Maybe that will help. Knock on wood my daughter has never had a bladder infection, but poor baby has to be absolutely miserable. Forget the house today and just make her comfortable.

I am a long-term sufferer of UTIs. I used to get them ALL THE TIME.

 

Some hints, (1) have her drink cranberry juice. (2) Lots and lots of water. (3) this is a last resort, and check with a doc first, but you should check to see if it's safe to use uristat on a 3-year old. It's an over-the-counter, low dose Pyridium (I think that's spelled right) which is an analgesic for the urinary tract. It doesn't cure the infection, but it will make the pain, frequent, and uncontrolled urination stop.

 

Good luck!!

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
