May 12, 2008

Monday morning! I am counting the days until school os out. I never thought I would say that. I just wanted to give a quick update on Jacob. He is scheduled to see the Rheumatologist in a couple of days. He is doing about the same. No better no worse. Last night was the first night in a long time that Jacob went out to play. He hasn't wanted to go outside in a long time. He said he was doing it for me for Mother's DAy. What ever the reason I was very glad he went out. For a breif while when I was watching him play I forgot about his arthritis. He was running around with the other kids playing wiffleball. He was out for a couple of hours. When he came in he played on the computer for a while. When he got up from the computer he could hardly walk. He said his knee was killing him, worst than ever he said. I didn't want to tell him it was because he played out. My heart was breaking for him. Why does a child have to go through something like this, all he did was play outside like a normal kid. This morning he was still really sore. He soaked in the tub for a while. He is off to school. Monday's I think are especially tough because he gets the tiredness from the Methotrexate this day. Arthritis just stinks, period!! Stay tuned for the update from the rheumatologist on Wednesday!
