When it rains it pours...
Well, My daughter who has arthritis is having another flare but
this one is pretty bad. It's spreading to her other knee. One
doctor wants to give her steroid shots and the others want to
give her naproxyn sodium. On one hand the shot will help it pretty well
but it will make her knee look terrible. On the other hand the naproxyn will
be less intrusive than the shot but tear up her stomach. I'm thinking about
seeing if we can have her try a COX-2 inhibitor like Vioxx or Celebrex.
I guess the only good thing is she is still a happy child.
My other daughter is going to CHOP for an MRI. She has
some fatty deposit on her foot that the doctor's want to check out. They said don't
worry but they have NO idea what it is. Plus she has an ear infection.
My wife doesn't have a thyroid problem but she does have depression and is on drug
therapy for it. The first week is the tough one. Plus TOM is hitting.
So she is on a big emotional roller coaster.
I'm fine but I'm stuck with all of this.
Say a prayer,
light a candle
keep me in your thoughts. It's not easy.
At least this is the new me and I'm pretty sane even
with being a sick puppy
