PLEASE pray for Sophie Le...

My sweet little baby isn't peeing. It started last Thursday when she woke up for the day. After a trip to the emergency room Sunday, an extensive doctor visit yesterday, a consult with a pediatric urologist, two medicines and two catheters (just imagine how much my overly cautious daughter enjoyed that)...no improvement! She has a slightly wet diaper each morning (about a third of her normal amount), but during the day, NOTHING. She did soak the examination table both times they tried to insert a catheter, that was a huge relief. They did a test on her urine to see if she has an infection, but it was all clear. They are sending off a sample for more testing. The kidneys are making the pee, her bladder just isn't realising it. We have tried soaking her in a warm bath, NOTHING. Ugg! The specialist (who is the ONLY pediatric urologist in Arkansas is out of town for a week)diagnosed her over the phone as being constipated. I have never heard of constipation causing a child to quit peeing, but I am clinging to any explanation right now. Please pray that the medicines will do their job and she will be better soon! Anyone ever heard of this type of problem before? Any advice would be great!!

On a much lighter note, we are on week #11 now.

I haven't heard of this, but I'm praying for doctor to know exactly what to do and that she'll be better SOON! If I can keep H.A. while you have doctor's visits or anything, I'd be happy to!

Poor baby! I can believe that constipation could cause restriction of the bladder (hope that makes you feel a little better)and I hope that all it is. Let us know.

Poor little girl & poor family! It has to be difficult not knowing what is causing her issues. I'm praying that she is comfortable and that the urologist can give you some concrete answers very soon!!
