Baby ‘Discharged’ From Hospital

Yesteray I tried using the potty method to collect Baby’s pee.  I used 2 sterilizing tablets to sterilize the potty prior to getting Baby to pee inside. After she had peed, I poured the pee into the sterile specimen bottle.

The results still showed some WBC, though reduced significantly. When I told the paed about my method of collecting the pee, he straight away wrote on the report “Urine contaminated” coz this method is not a ‘clean catch’ method and in the medical term, the urine will be deemed as contaminated.

Long story cut short (rushing to go to church now), Baby has been ‘discharged’ (no more antibiotics thru IV) and is now on oral antibiotics for 2 weeks. A repeat urine culture is to be done next week. Though we were supposed to be hospitalized, we were home most of the time as we were on home leave.

I’ll leave you here with some pix taken at the hospital yesterday:

  1. baby c must be quite used to the whole process already huh. but she is really brave, i would still wince with any needles poking me.

    the hospital looks so familiar! 😉 …cannot believe sher finds the food nice. i didnt like them and didnt even finish my food when i was there. lol!

  2. Love how A has her arm ard C…so touching! Amazing how brave little C is! Double check with the doc abt when the next specimen needs to be collected..technically not when C is still on antibiotics as naturally it may give a false negative reading. Usually have to wait for a couple of days after the last dose of meds.

  3. I just read your past entries on Baby C’s UTI and admittence to hospital. Yes, it’s not easy to insert the IV catheter into a baby’s small vein… cause so much pain! I’m so sorry to hear all that Baby C had to go through.

    Baby C is really a brave and tough baby. Good that she has been discharged and her appetite is back again. I hope the UTI will not come back, and do take care.
