I Just Love Dr. Foster :o)

We made another trip down to Cambridge MA yesterday. We got a little lost for a bit. That's what we get for trying a different set of directions. We just backtracked, got to a place that was familiar and made our way. NOW the next time we know exactly where to go. Easy as pie. We found that it is best to park at the Galleria then take the free shuttle over to Kendall Square. It pulled up right in front of Dr. Fosters building and runs every 20 minutes.
Now...on to the appointment. As before everyone at MERSI was so friendly and warm. They are wonderful with Jenna. Dr. Foster hit the nail on the head when he walked in, smiled at her and said, "Hi Princess.". He is so good with her. We are definitely going to continue to see him to treat her Uveitis. As of now her eyes are for the most part quiet. Only trace cells. Pressures are good. We are increasing her MTX dose from .6 to .8 this Sunday. Since her JRA is flaring as well it was probably time to increase anyway. Over the next two weeks we will taper her drops to none at all. That way she will have been off the drops for two weeks when we go back to Dr. Foster on March 19th. He wants to see how her eyes respond to just the MTX with no drops. I am SO eager to find out. If she responds well then we will continue to see him every 6-8 weeks for follow ups. I think it's time to get an EZ-PASS. But hey....I now no longer have a fear of bridges or escalators!
