I am sorry for your child's ill health. As I understand your main doubt is concerning his urine examination report. His report states that he is having Urinary tract infection(UTI). This can be treated effectively by giving him antibiotics under the guidance of his treating doctor. It can be easily treated and so do not worry.

Thanks for consulting, hope it helps!
