Urinary Tract Infection

As I have mentioned in my previous post in this blog, Ms. Burrito has been carrying  a high fever on and off since last Thursday  last week.  She felt a little better last Friday so she went to school but at twelve noon, she called me to come to school  and pick her up.  She was so sick again that day and the whole night.  The morning of Saturday, I gave her  a good bath then she felt better but at night time she was fevered again, sigh.
We were getting so worried  about her  fever coming on and off so we  brought her to the hospital yesterday.  She was dehydrated so the doctor gave her an IV, am intravenous device for delivering  electrolyte solutions, medicine, and nutrients.  They ran some blood tests (took five tubes of blood from her).  I am so glad that she is a tough kid, she never  cried or whimper when they were sticking needles on her.  She's definitely tougher than me. 
The result of the blood test  came back and the doctor said that she has a Urinary Tract Infection or UTI.  We never suspected that she has a UTI as she did not have a difficulty in urinating but the doctor said that the infection is not in her urethra but in the bladder.  

"UTI are infections of the  urethra, bladder, ureters, or the kidneys which comprise the urinary tract.  UTIs are diagnosed usually by isolating and identifying the urinary pathogen from the patient.  The symptoms and signs vary somewhat depending on sex, age, and the area of the urinary tract that is infected."  These are some if the infos I read at MedicneNet.com.
I am just glad that it did not impede her urine flow as it is very painful.  I had a UTI before and  it was an excruciating pain.  I did not send her to school today as she is still very weak although there is no fever anymore.  She  vomited this morning so I am letting her  eat some  saltine to settle her stomach.  I feel so bad because she lost her appetite, she doesn't want to eat anything.  She is taking antibiotics and I hope that she would be completely healed soon.

Thanks for all who included my daughter  in their prayer, it is greatly appreciated!

  7. Sorry to hear about your daughter. My daughter was diagnosed too. One of the symptoms was high fever and reach to 104 and that scares me to death when my daughter has UTI- and so sad she it happen after our vacation in Philippines that's why my hubby doesn't want me to bring our daughter back until she develops her good immune system.My doctor said it is very common to girls.

  12. Praying for Ms. Burrito's fast recovery.

    Bella was also hospitalized due to UTI last year so I understand how hard it is for everyone in the family to have a sick kid. It is good to know na wala na syang fever sis.

  14. Oh! Get well soon quick, miss burrito. I know how mommy feels when kids got sick.
    I wonder why UTI's becoming common to kids now. My youngest had the same two years back, she was given antibiotics, the pedia suspected something in her diet...up to now, I don't know how it happened.

    Hugs to u, brave kid.

  27. Wow, you've got a very tough daughter, Rose. My daughter is like that, too. It seemed like I was the one in pain whenever she has IV injections when she's sick. I hope she'll feel okay and gain back her appetite the soonest.
