The moment we knew that Faith has UTI, my husband searched about Urinary Track Infection and here was what he found.
Normally urine travels this path without a hitch, but if bacteria get in the urine — from the skin around the genitals or rectum or via the bloodstream — they can create infection and inflammation at any point along the way. About 8 percent of girls and 2 percent of boys will have at least one urinary tract infection (UTI) during childhood.
For many children, an unexplained fever is the only symptom. About 5 percent of babies and toddlers who have a fever without other symptoms have a UTI.
- Crying or another indication that urination is painful
- Odd-smelling urine.
- Cloudy or bloody urine
- Unexplained, persistent irritability
- Refusal to eat
- Abdominal, side, or back pain
I am hoping that Faith would be heal as soon as possible, I already had no sleep for how many days already because I keep on monitoring her fever.
My baby still had a fever, we already have taken her to her Pediatrician and he asked us to have a laboratory test for platelet and urine because he could not see any phlegm for Faith to get a high fever. We were there the whole day, waiting for her result I was then relieved that it was not the Dengue that I always scared of, but we still need to attain Faith’s infection. The Doctor recommended us an anti-bacterial for her UTI. I was hoping she would be heal that night, sadly her fever is still on and off and it has been four days already.
It is hard to blog when you have your daughter sitting in your lap, while you are trying so hard to write something. She would insist on writing something too, she would sing a song for you; she would do her best to distract you. Now she is trying to lie down her head in my arms while I am doing my best to write a post. It is annoying sometimes but oh well she is doing her best as well not to annoy me, she would say I love you Mama, now how I could be so pissed off with such a little darling like her. Nope, and I guess it will never be, because she is just too adorable for me. I guess I have to just be patient right here, but I tell you it’s never easy.
