I know. Urine and infection. Why on earth would I post about this? My sweet little baby cake, Gianna, was in the hospital for a few days, a few weeks ago with a really high fever and vomiting and dehydration. Ultimately she was diagnosed with a UTI (urinary tract infection) and possibly a kidney infection. She had a renal ultrasound and a VCUG (void cystourethrogram). Everything came out looking pretty good besides a thick ureter. So we thought yay! Just a fluke.
Beginning yesterday and today, the fever and vomiting have returned full force this evening. Delightful. She was up all last night with a fever and ululation and today the vomiting started again. :( she drenched both of us down to our underwear.
Because my other thermometers are about as useful as a unicorn cage at the zoo, I went out and bought a temporal thermometer. Very handy for sleeping babies.
By the way, sick babies are the worst. Heart breaking. I'm taking her in to the doctor tomorrow and bracing myself for a not very sound sleep tonight...especially since sick babies often go on a nursing strike, the utters turn into hard painful rocks.
Happy 8th month birthday Gianna! Wish I could undo whatever has caused you this fever and sickness. :( And happy St. Nicholas day tomorrow. Don't forget to leave out your shoes tonight!
