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.
