My 7 month old had a fever of 105.5. SCARY! He was lethargic and floppy. The hospital was hell. They took blood and that was okay, but they wanted urine and insisted on using a catheter. I was okay with giving it a go. But as soon as they pulled his foreskin back, he started bleeding and SCREAMING. Then the nurse kept inserting the catheter and it was getting stuck in the area right before the bladder and she wasn't gentle. After 2 minutes of his extreme pain and crying, I demanded they catch it in a bag instead. The nurse insisted that someone else could help do it and went to get someone else. The attending doctor came in right when the nurse left and agreed the we needed to bag it and told the nurse off in the hallway. I was in tears and my 5 year old was scared. *sigh* After this, it took almost 3 hours to get us discharged. I felt so horrible for Levi, that I allowed him that pain. :(
Now I'm worried about infection and the skin fusing together where it shouldn't. Help?
