Our discovery with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

Tuesday Morning


Well yesterday Cat went to the pediatrician for followup and she said it looks like arthritis in her ankle. I just can’t wait until the 21st to get here so we can go to Chapel Hill to get answers. I am just amazed, I asked the pediatrician if this will affect her left knee or ankle and she said you know she just can’t tell b/c this disease affects many joints. I know this has got to be a test that God is putting me through to see if I can handle this. I just wish it would all go away.

First Day of School


Today was a¬†awesome first day. I met with Cat’s teacher this morning to let her know what was going on, and take the doctor’s note. Yesterday was a good check up with the orthopedic surgeon he said her knee was looking better, and see her back in 2 months. So now we alternate months between Specialist and Surgeon. We will know more next month from the pediatric specialist. Monday and Tuesday Cat woke up with a stiff knee, so I am,¬† unsure with what is going on. She started complaining about her ankle on and off last week, that’s something we need to check out with the doctor. Catherine said that her knee started hurting when she was playing on the playground.

As far as mom, I started training on the cycle last week 10 miles every other day.
