I was mostly worried that with her dehydration, her kidneys might be having some trouble. So really I took her in to get her hydrated and check her kidney function. And all her tests were normal, until the last one which showed a UTI. Ugh, no!!!!
Most of you know Sara's history with UTIs and kidney infection. But for those that don't, a quick update. Almost every time Sara has had one, she has ended up being admitted to the hospital. The problem stems from all the infections she had when she was younger, and because of it she has some antibiotic resistance. And Sara only seems to grow the meanest, nastiest bugs out there. Not good! Because of the two things combined, only once have we ever been successful in treating Sara's infections with prescription antibiotics at home.
So with this news, the doctor and I discussed it and decided to at least try to treat it at home first. She prescribed a super strength medication and I'm praying that it will do the job. I think it has a chance because we caught this bug so early, even before Sara showed any signs of fever. Not sure if the vomiting is related to the infection or something else; could be either.
So now we wait. If the drug isn't going to be able to kill of this infection, it will be likely that Sara will be in the hospital by Monday. Let's just hope that doesn't happen. But I promise you, if it does, I will be posting to let you all know.
