I got my other sister in law with me and we went to talk to my sister in law about my niece. She got mad because, I told somebody but, I told her that this was not a playing matter and it doesn't matter what matters is her daughter. We talked to her for about 30 minutes and finally she relunctantly went with us to take her to the IMSS. The whole way she kept saying in front of her child that all she did was try to get attention and this was one of her stunts!!! We kept teling her to shut up but, wouldn't work.
At the IMSS, it took us a few mintues to find where to take her. We kept being sent to here and there. Finally and Dr checked her and sent us to another hospital without saying what he thought. We went to another hospital on the other side of the city and waited forever to get seen. The Dr wouldn't let anybody go back with her. He said that, if she had anything to say, she woud say it quicker without anybody in there. He checked her and talked to her and after an hour came out and caled her mom back. We told him we all were coming back. He didn't like it but, allowed us to. I think he realized, we weren't playing.
As soon as we got into his office, he began getting on to my sister in law for being a neglectful mom. He finally got to his findings, she has an extreme yeast infection and UTI. Which, has caused her to scratch herself horribly. He said that when she was itching she said she went in the bathroom and scratched until it hurt. He said this infection is so bad that, she has had to have it for a long time. His other findings were that she feels alone, her mom doesn't pay attention to her. She told him that all she does is talk on the phone with her boyfriend and play with her son. The boyfriend thing is what bothers her the most, her mom and dad are married and my SIL has a boyfriend on the side and sees him in front of her children so, this baby feels pulled between helping her mom keep this from her dad and helping her dad by telling him. She has so much turmoil going on inside of her that she can't stand it and he thinks that helped make the infections worse.
He told SIL that he should call Proteccion Civil but, would give her the chance to fix this. She was being neglectful because this child has had these infections for too long and she never took her to the doctor and by all of the stuff my niece told the doctor. He referred her to a child therapist and family therapy. He said, he will monitor this and if she does not go to the therapy sessions, he will report her to Proteccion Civil.
We are thanking God that it was nothing more!!! But, we are al pissed at SIL because, how in the hell could she not realize this child had these infections? She is one of the worst moms I know, I have always tod MIguel that, one day somebody was going to take those babies. When we first got here, her 3 year old son got lost for at least 5 hours. She was not sure how long, she was supposively cleaning but, my niece said, no she was with her boyfriend in the bedroom. The other time I know about, her 2 year old baby almost got run over in the middle of the road. She was here at my MIL's house alone and talking on the phone to her boyfriend and was not watching her baby. The car came 6 inches from hitting her!!!
I hope and pray this baby gets the therapy she needs and like the doctor said with this infection as bad as it is, there is a possibilty she won't be able to get pregnant when she is older. When she gets better and a little older, they will do some tests on her to see if she was scarred in her uterus from this.
I will be on top of this until I go to the States. I told my niece to call me if she needs anyhting and she is at home and when here she can hang out with us when she wants to. We all knew she need affection and try to give it to her but, she needs it from her mom, that is why what she gets from all of us and her dad's family is not enough.
Please keep her in your prayers.
