Hi everyone. I've been on the forum for a few years now, but I've never posted a huge amount. Some people might recognize my name from a few threads, but more likely I'll know you than you know me. Anyway... My work recently started to monitor internet usage. Because of that, I've really dropped out of the forum and the little posting I would do. Something's going on - and I might be making a bigger deal of it than it is - that has me ignoring the tracking and posting this. I've seen HTF really come together at times, and right now I would really appreciate any prayers or good thoughts for my 4 year old daughter, Trinity, my wife, Renee, and me. A little over a week ago Trinity complained that it hurt when she went pee. It got to the point where she just held it in and refused to go. Typipcally she would end up going once a day, but that would be after a lot of frustration and coaxing on our part or she'd end up having an accident. We actually took her to the ER at one point because it had been 24 hours since he had gone pee. While we were waiting, she let loose in the bathroom there so we were much relieved. Unfortunately, that didn't end the problem. She continued holding her pee for the next couple of days. We decided to take her to her pediatrician. He examined her and found nothing physically wrong with her area. We were able to get a pee sample from her and it tested negative for any infection. (We only got a small sample at the ER because the cup spilled while my wife was helping her; it also tested negative.) I should also say that after the first couple of days, when we would try to get her to go she would say she was afraid it would hurt. After she would eventually go, she said it did not. So, after going to the pediatrician, the behavior continued. By this last Saturday, she again had not gone pee in approximately 24 hours and had not pooped in 5 days. We could not get in touch the pediatrician so we took another trip to the ER. Once again, she peed before we could be seen by any docs (which was good) but she still had not pooped. They ended up giving her a suppository, which did nothing, and an enema, which worked but she did not enjoy. We kept hoping and praying that this would resolve things. Her pediatrician mentioned that this could be some sort of control issue, but I've seen the fear in her when we try to get her to pee. It doesn't seem like control. I even started to wonder if someone had done something to her down there, but the doctors found nothing wrong and she isn't in any environment where that could even happen. I just don't know what to do, and being her dad I want to fix this. As I type this, it has been about 40 hours since she has gone pee. I know that doesn't sound possible, but it is the truth as far as we can tell. Yesterday she was pretty active during the day but at night she got fairly lethargic. That has continued today. My wife's mother is watching her, and she told my wife that she is just lying around, wanting to do nothing. She is not eating or drinking now, though yesterday she did do okay, and she is pale. My wife has set up another appointment with her pediatrician for this afternoon. I think they need to draw some blood to find out what is wrong, though a part me thinks that is just the overreaction of a father. Please keep Trinity in your thoughts and prayers. I don't want to break any of the forum guidelines, but I think I can say that we have really been praying about this since it started. Also, if any of you have gone through something similar, please share your experiences. Was it something that eventually just passed? How were you able to help your child get over it? Thanks so much for reading all of this.
