Since Leland has had multiple Urinary Tract Infections and had some tests show signs of Kidney Infection we decided to schedule a voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG).

Next Friday (19th) she will be slightly sedated, have a catheter, while the doctor watches a dye travel through her bladder and empty. They make sure that the bladder will completely empty and not spit dye (or urine) back into the kidneys (Vesicoureteral reflux).

I know that if there is a problem we are catching it early. There is a possibility it is something she will just out grow or can control with small doses of antibiotics.


  1. Oh, I hope everything goes well! It's so hard to see your babies sick.

  2. Oh poor girl! Hope everything goes will and it will. I like to read up on all this medical stuff because it helps me while in nursing school :)
