So we went to Winston Salem today for Beanz rheumatology appointment. I had really been looking forward to this appointment because of all the pain she has been having. The good news is: her arthritis looks GREAT! Everything is quiet as of right now. No hot, swollen, stiff joints. Also the fluid that had been on her knees at the last appointment is gone! YESSAH! The bad news: all the pain that she has been having is coming from joint hypermobility and femoral anteversion. There is nothing that can be done either. Just stop when something hurts and take Motrin and Tylenol. Well that's a pisser! So once again we take the good with the bad. I guess it's okay. We've learned to roll with the punches. She also got her flu shot today and had her labs done. SUCH a trooper!! This time not even ONE tear was shed! WOOHOO! And we got to go to Krispy Kreme after because she was such a good girl! So, unless something comes up with her JRA between now and February, we don't have to go back until February 12th!
