    Hello

    I am so sorry to read that your little girl will have to have more injections and so on. At least you can call in here and have a rant and let of steam. It must be so very difficult and upsetting for you.

    I noticed that you answered Dawn's (Tattymouse) message on the other zone, thank you for doing that. I hope that she may perhaps private message you. There are other mums on here with little ones diagnosed with arthritis but they don't call in so much probably because mums are always so very busy.

    My heart goes out to you all - it must be heartbreaking to see your children in pain and distress.

    Luv
    Elna x()

    Hi There,

    I am sorry to hear about your 3 year old. My daughter was diagnosed at 3 and she is now 8!
    We have just been told she has Extended Oligo now so was a bit of a kick in the stomach.
    While sitting in the hospital waiting for our appointment there was a little girl who looked about 3 who reminded me of my little girl at that age and to think we had been going for 5 years now is heartbreaking but you some how just get on and do what you have to do.
    I hope your little girl is one of the ones that grows out of it or has long times in remission ( i dont like this work) but thats what the dr's use!
    We all need to have a good rant now and then.

    Take Care & hugs to your little one
