I Pray That Was It
So, as some of you know Jenna has been in pain for a few weeks now. If you are just now joining the party, WELCOME!, and you can go here and here to catch up on the latest :) Okay so last night was a "double Shot night" as seemingly all of us JRA families like to call it. Also, side note: Sunday seems to be just about every one's shot night. Okay, SO, last night Bean got her weekly MTX as well ass her bi-weekly Humira. I prayed and prayed and PRAYED some more. Please Lord, PLEASE let this be it. Please just let it be that she is in need of another dose. She was getting so progressively worse each day that I didn't think she would make it to school this week. By days end on Friday, Saturday and Sunday she couldn't walk. Daddy carried her, or she crawled, or she hopped on her one good foot. Despite the fact that it hurt her legs to do so. This morning she really struggled to get up and moving. She asked to please stay home and rest. It broke my heart but I told her to please go and try. If you can't make it then they can call me and I'll come get you. It was getting close to lunch time and we hadn't heard anything. So I suggested to Larry that we go surprise her with lunch. That way we'll know for certain. Well....as soon as she saw us, she bolted into a run, leaped up and wrapped herself around me monkey style!!! Feeling better Cupcake? She giggled and said YUP! WOW. What a difference. She seems back to normal now. Well....HER normal. Nothing is ever "normal" for her. But, for right now, she seems good! We go see Dr. Sagerman on the 25th. Very eager to get his take on all the goings on. AND to talk to him about CARRA and getting on the patient registry!! Is YOUR pediatric Rheum on it? Find out!!
