Hope's appointment at CHEO has been set for April 25. Yesterday was her six month appointment at the doctor and I got all the details of the CHEO appointment while I was there. For those not in the know, Hope had a bladder infection and now has to get it checked out at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) to make sure nothing is wrong that caused the infection (apparently standard for these wee ones).
So, here's the kicker: she has to have a full bladder. Uh, pardon? Has CHEO gone off its nut? The kid is six months old! Excuse me, Hope, but can please ensure that you hold your pee until they do the ultrasound. Gee, thanks. Oh, also, you can't be full of breastmilk... only water or juice so do you mind learning how to use a sippy cup (or, gasp, a bottle like a normal baby) before your appointment?
So far, in my dealings with child-specific doctoring or medical stuff, I've been pretty impressed but this... this is just wonky. Erika... any tips for keeping pee in a baby?
