Another UTI :(

Reagan slept well last night and was a sleepy girl today as well! She slept straight through a diaper change missing her morning session of speech, but did finally wake up at 11:30 when we changed her clothes to get her ready for her doctors appt. She stayed awake for the whole appt/cathing...she was a super smiley, sweet girl the whole time. The cathing did get a little messy though! Reagan has a tendency to not release her pee even when cathed or if she does, often times it bypasses the cath and goes pouring out everywhere else! That is what happened today! Thankfully we knew this was a good possibility, so her nurse was ready with a cup to catch it (giving us enough to send off for culture), but we did have quite the mess to clean up! We did a complete outfit change and waited a bit to find out that (as we already knew), her pee tested positive for leukocytes and nitrites (a clear indication of a UTI). They are still sending it off for culture, but we immediately started her on an antibiotic, Cefdinir, the same one we used a few months ago for this. Hopefully it will clear everything up no problem. I'm not exactly sure why she's having these issues all of a sudden, because in the past her stinky pees always tested negative, but who knows. Hopefully this is the last we'll see of a UTI for a while. Poor thing. She sure seems smiley and unbothered by it though! She fell back to sleep shortly after getting back home from the appt and then slept the rest of the afternoon. Tonight she woke up around 8 and was wide awake and smiling! Tonight we FINALLY took down our Christmas decorations from the attic! Our tree has been up for a week, but undecorated. I started the process of adding ornaments tonight only to realize I'm missing the hangers! So the search begins. Not a lot accomplished but I'm glad it's all accessible now.
