Moocher spiked a temp and I suspect she might have another kidney infection. I sent her to daycare with a specimen cup, but the sitter said everytime Moocher saw the cup she refused to go. I gathered up kid and cup and went to the lab. Got a hat and took her to the bathroom. She pee'd up a storm and filled it halfway. I realized I'd forgotten to bring the cup in with me and turned to open the door and ask the tech for one. My hand was on the knob when I heard a sound that curled my toes, and I whirled around the shrieked, "NO!!!!!!!"

She dumped it. She lifted the toity seat, picked up the hat ohsocarefully, and dumped every last drop of urine in the toity.

Took me three freakin' hours to get another sample, in a town 30 miles from home. I told her we weren't going home until she pee'd again.

He said that if she belonged to any other mom (not a nurse), that with her history he'd be admitting her tonight. I have the entire family on Moocher Watch.....any sign of getting worse and grandparents call me at work, I call Girl Child, Girl Child drops what she's doing and gets Moocher to the ER until I can get there.
