What are your opinions on this cold weather and letting your kids out to play at break and lunch times. I told school this morning that if it kept being this cold and if the wind picks up she's not to go out. I got a very icy reception to that I must say. We've not had any snow down here but it's been cold which doesn't seem to be doing her any good especially as her knees have been hurting lately.
Just so happened that as I picked the kids up from school her consultant rang me. I have booked a physio appointment on Thursday for her due to knees and mentioned this to her. She fired a few questions at me then said depending on how physio feels she will see her next week or if she feels she's ok then wait till Jan 10th when Bristol consultant comes down.
I then mentioned the cold and how I've asked the school not to let her out but if she wants to let her but no more than 10 mins she agreed with me but also said that's a tough call as to what to do obviously want her to have fun and join in but equally not let her get to cold and stiff up her joints.
We haven't been using the wheelchair for a bit but i'm starting to use it again more now
she can't do very long distances still which concerns me as I would have thought she could have gotten to school and back. There are some days that she will walk all the way home but she suffers big time for it. With this cold spell I've been driving them to school especially as been busy going meetings and then trying to sort out christmas etc.
The MTX and Enbrel seem to be doing a great job but as the consultant pointed out it's been exactly 4 months since the steroid joint injections and the pain in her knees could possibly be that wearing off
I hope not as I had hoped and thought that those two meds were helping her.
