Our discovery with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

Archive for September 11, 2010


Well we just gave Catherine her weekly injection, so far she hasn’t had any mouth sores, or any hair falling out that we can tell. She has been nauseated to a degree, but not where she can’t eat. Her appetite is good but she is picky. We have put her on vitamin with iron she is pretty anemic.

Since this past Monday, we took Cat to the pediatrician because of her ankle. She had serious bruising, we know it wasn’t broken, but we wanted to make sure it wasn’t sprained. She is off of PE for two weeks.

Status report on her ankle, it is going down but it is still pretty swollen, the pediatrician thinks it is arthritis too. We go back on Monday afternoon for her to look at the ankle again. We have been resting it and elevating it.
