…. that Baby C does not have anymore Klabsiella bacteria in her urinary tract. More than a week has passed since the last urine culture test was done. I haven’t sent Baby C’s pee for another culture as her purging had stopped, her down under is not sore anymore and her pee looks rather clear. I am praying hard that the Klabsiella bacteria had been flushed out from Baby C’s body through her pee. I am also hoping that after the ureteral reimplantation surgery and all that she had gone through last month, her urinary tract system is now normal and functioning as it should have been. Now that the duplex system is fixed, I hope baby’s body is able to fight off whatever bacteria that is invading her urinary tract. Before the surgery, the urinary tract system is like a yoyo due to the double ureters. I am praying hard that baby’s urinary tract system is A-ok now.
I am still living in fear each day. I still smell and scrutinize baby’s soiled diaper each time I change her. For as long as there is no confirmation from the doctor or MCUG scan that she is free from Kidney Reflux, I am still petrified that what she had gone through for the past 1 year will still happen again. I am well aware that the success rate of the surgery is 96%-100%, so there is a chance that she still has kidney reflux.
In the meantime, I am feeding baby with barley water every other day as I was told by my surgeon that barley water is good for the bladder. I did a google search on barley water and UTI and found out that indeed, barley water, which is diuretic, is effective in treating UTI. Have also been feeding her with boiled lemon grass water. I read that coconut water is also good in treating UTI. Perhaps I should try feeding her with coconut water too. Hopefully with all these natural remedies along with being super clean with her down under, I can help stave off those nasty bugs from attacking Baby C.
