well we are off to hossy again today. i am not looking forward to it as lucy's flare seems to be going nowhere and after the farce that was last weeks attempt at iv's has not apeared to help.
Lucy has no energy is not sleeping right and is in "extra pain".
She needs another booster till the mtx kicks in, we only done 7 weeks!!!! it not making any differance at the moment. Poor little begger is so fed up, she had 5 joyous weeks where she had some relief and now she back to not being able to do much.

I know like many of you hate seeing ur babies in pain, she is so down emotionally, i wish i could just take it all away.

    Sending you both (((hugs)))

    I have had OA since mid twenties. It affects my hips and knees. I had a THR on the left aged 30 and now have a resurface-replacement on the right - done May 2010.

    HiLucy's mum

    I'm sorry to read about your little girl. I do hope they can do something for her today. It is not nice being an adult with Arthur, but knowing there are kiddies with it well it must be horrible for you to have to see her like that.

    Well, a (((((()))) for her
    Trish xxx

    Oh no hugs. I hope she feels some benefit from MTX soon. I think Kayleigh has been on 13 weeks possibly 14 can't remember but she's in a big flare up now she woke at 6am screaming in pain about her knees there's just no way to describe that feeling

    good luck and hope all goes well and your having a good easter break.
