You may find it odd that I am posting about my son's urine. Well, as you may or may not know, Owen's kidney failure is a result of a blockage in his bladder that originated during fetal development. So not only does he have major kidney issues, but also bladder and urinary tract issues.
Owen is on a medicine to "paralyze" his bladder. It was so stressed and over worked in utero that it became very thick and enlarged. We were told that Owen would likely never urinate on his own. We currently catheterize him in the morning and night to get what urine he makes out of his bladder. During his night time cath we do a "bladder irrigation" in which we hook up a syringe to the end of the catheter and flush in an antibiotic to stay in his bladder over night. This will help prevent urinary tract infections. When we cath him in the morning we get out the antibiotic. Or so this was the plan...
Until Owen decided he would pee-pee on his own! Owen has been having wet diapers and going potty on his own, especially in the bath tub. :)
Tonight after our night time cath Owen decided he didn't want the antibiotic in him so...he peed. All over Mommy and the bed.!
|Oops! Sorry Mommy!|
|The evidence...who would have thought I would ever be so excited to have my son pee on me? :)|
