Pray for Avah.... Monday she is going to start a new treatment for her JRA. She has a new wonderful doctor and is suggesting we change her medicine. I have been struggling with this decision. Avah is going to get steroid injections into her inflamed joints (knee & wrist). Steroids scare me with a growing child. Her doctor assures us it is ok. It is hard to put all your trust into a doctor. From what I have heard it is very painful. After the injection she will have to be on bed rest for 24 hours to let the medicine settle. This will hopefully only have to be done 1-2 times a year instead of weekly like her current injections. I wish I could take the pain away from her. I am trying to find a way to explain to her what is going to happen but I haven't been able to bring myself to do it yet.....


  1. We will certainly have you all in our prayers.

  2. I'm praying. Send me a text when you're on your way so I can be praying when it's going on. Huggs friend. The Lord knows exactly whats happening and I know He's in the mist of this whole situation. You're such a wonderful mom and I pray that He'll give you the Perfect words to explain this all to Avah.
