hello all i know i havnt been on for awhile i apologise to all those who have been wondering about lucy. well she went on humeria about 6weeks ago, its a fortnightly injection, humeria is a treatment for adults but our hospital has been given permission to us it for her, so far we havnt seen any difference but its early days yet as it can take upto 12 weeks to work, she is still in pain but as ususal she just deals with it.. hope everyone else is coping as best they can, its incredibly hard to be a parent of a child with arthritits and although most of us would change places with our child in a heartbeat, somehow we all have to find the strenght to be brave for our children.
