In Alot of Pain
So I normally only blog after doctors appointments. No appointment but lots of swelling and pain. Her knees and one elbow have been swelling off and on. One day her knees will be big balloons. Next morning....nothing. Her elbow seems to be staying puffy. She complains alot about her back, legs and now her arms too. But does she slow down? NOOOOOOO!!!!! Yes I KNOW she is only five years old. She is playing like a normal five year old should. But that's the thing. She ISN'T a normal five year old. I hate seeing her in pain like this. Time to call the rheumatologist. Of course it's the weekend so we'll have to wait until Monday. She is currently on .6 MTX. He says there is plaenty of room to go up. She is also taking her prescription strength ibuprofen 3x daily. Cheer 101 starts in less than a month. She is so looking forwrad to it. We have GOT to get this under control by then.
