It's been nearly a week since my one year son has been peeing an unusual brown, kinda thick urine in his diaper. I took him to the ER with my husband and they said him peeing a different color pee is a big concern for them, and they would see if it is an infection or anything. So we were there for almost four hours and they didn't give us an answer of what it might be. They put a catheter in his lil wee wee and they tried to catch some urine, but nothing. Then they put a little bag over his private part to see if he will pee. So his dad and I gave him fluids so he would pee, but nothing. I don't know if it hurt when he pees, but he cries more than usual. So they got tired of waiting and sent us home. I don't know how it happened but I'm worried. I tried calling his pediatrician, but his secretary says he's busy. I'm guessing I should take him in again, I'll find a way. Please, if this has happened to your child, give me info. Thank You.
