I am worried.

Last week I took Lily to the doctor thinking she had an urinary tract infection or a bladder infection. For the past couple of months she has been having problems wetting herself no matter how many times she went to the toilet. However, when they tested her urine everything came back negative for an infection. What didn't turn out so well was the fact that she had a lot of blood in her urine. Most women who are about to start their menstrual cycle don't come out with this amount of blood in the urine. The doctor believes it may be urinary reflux.

What is apparently not so rare with children her age is when the kidneys send urine to the bladder and the bladder regurgitates a bit of it back into the kidneys. The doctor says that if that is the case, it can easily be fixed with a bit of noninvasive surgery.
