I think I just blackened Layla's emotional wall out

Folks came. Yay!

When I got home from work, Layla was obviously very happy to have Grandma C and Papa here. She was playing and having a good time, but she started to pee in her underwear. A lot. Frequently. For a long time we tried to do the whole "we don't pee in our underwear, that's yucky". But as time went on, it looked like she had less and less control over it, and more and more uncomfortableness with it. Then she started grabbing herself. You see where this is going.

When I finally looked, her vagina was BRIGHT RED. And inflamed. Mike called our ped's office and talked with the help nurses, and it sounds like a UTI. They suggested a baking soda soak and call for an appointment in the morning. Fortunately we were finally able to get her to go down for the night and the soak wasn't necessary.

Okay, so now we have a newly potty trained kid who is pissing herself on the regular and is associating using the bathroom with pain. We're fucked. After we get the whole diagnosis and meds straightened out, we're going to have to start at square one again. Aren't we?

And I'm secretly relieved that I don't have to be home dealing with it.
