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!
Happy JA Awareness Month
