What a winter

It has been a few months since I last blogged. But what a roller coaster ride it has been for Ava and I. There are days I wonder why her. In August Ava had a procedure in her right knee. The steroids were not working or the methotrexate, or the maloxicam. she had to get sedated and they were able to remove a about 5ml of fluid from her joint and inject a steroid. I was so relieved it worked. The school she goes to offers PT and OT to her for Pre K which is awesome. Ava is still getting sick a lot but is pushing threw it. Ava is still getting her injections of Methotrexate once a week and taking her anti-inflammatory every day. The problem we face now is the short is which is sad and stressful as a mom. I hope the manufactures will knock off the nonesense and just make the drug.


  1. Hi, I volunteer with IAAM (International Autoimmune Arthritis Movement~formerly the Buckle-Me-Up Movement!). What we've been working on in February and March has been reaching out to people on our JA blogger list and asking if we can post them as a resource on the JA page. To start, could we have contact info from you to add to our blogger list for our records. And if you give us the info, then we will also post your blog as a resource for others on the JA page. Please email me at and let me know.
    We also invite you to participate in World Autoimmune Arthritis Day on May 20th 2012!

    World Autoimmune Arthritis Day

    Join us for a 47 hour, Global Online Virtual Convention aimed to bring global awareness while learning more about your disease and ways to manage it best!

    Thanks, Dana M
