rheumatology appointment

Jacob went for his 3 month follow-up today. He is doing great! All of his joints are doing well.
Three months ago, we had decreased his methotrexate by doing it every other week instead of weekly.

Jacob is currently taking 17.5 mg, which is the equivelant of 7 pills. Starting this Sunday we are reducing the dose by 1 pill. Which is 2.5mgs. He should be completely off, if all stays well, by the end of January.

January of 2008 is when he had come out of a remission. I can't believe three years has gone by!

He is going to continue on the Humira. Which he takes every other week. We are to watch for any flaring as the med is decreased and return in 3 months.
