Why My 7 year old son got UTI infection ?

My 7 year old son, once while playing he complined of severe stomach pain. Later while passing urine there was some blood, i got really panicked and went to see a child doctor. the doctor asked me to get the urine examaintion done. The urine test showed there was lot of ous cells. The doctor explined presence of pus cells means there will be lot of urine infection. Doctor gave him some antibiotics and now he is fine. Why he got this infection, i really donot know ?

My father is 85 years old. 3 years ago a vertabra fractured due to metastasized prostate cancer ( good news, though, on that - his PSA level has been normal since undergoing hormone shots every six months). Although he can move his lower body he can no longer bear weight has been wheelchair bound and has had an indwelling Foley catheter since the cancer was discovered. He is now, of course, experiencing chronic UTI s and his creatinine level has risen dramatically with the last course of antibiotics (he is developing some resistance to antibiotic treatment). What might be the next steps to control the UTI s without putting his kidneys at elevated risk?

Recently my urine was tested with a dipstick and then sent for urinalysis twice. My doctor said that there was a plus 1 red blood cell in my urine. The first test was done during my period therefore she asked to repeat it. The second test was done 3 days before my next period. I am 33 and I had a cesearean section 10 months ago. Could the surgery have cause damage? How worried should I be about these results?
