Growing Up So Quickly

Yesterday our 2nd grader's class put on a musical for all the parents it was so adorable had to share:)
The girls are getting over viruses and ear infections the weather has been strange.
I cannot knit still to painful and awkward so just enjoy time with my family.
On the health situation for me we are having to make changes rapidly.
I started chemo meds last week but the pills gave me mouth sores so their going to teach us how to do injections since my hands and wrists are really bad hubby will be doing them for me once a week we are hoping it will help me get more mobility back and less pain.
If we can slow down or supress my immune systems attack on my joints then I can be more active but it takes time and finding the right medicine to achieve this and so we hope this medicine will be a good fit.
Hoping everyone is well and missing you all.

Hey Darcy girl!
I am so sorry to hear of all the pain that you are in! My thoughts and prayers are certainly with you and your family!
Why were you taking Chemo? They give Chemo for arthritis? I do hope you find a good medicine fit that is able to help you.
Oh my gosh! Not able to knit! I will knit double for you!

Love, hugs, and kisses to ya!

My 6-year-old takes methotrexate shots once a week for arthritis. He says he can taste it in his mouth. We usually give it to him in his leg. He only gets occasional flare-ups which are easily treated with Motrin. We put emla cream on the skin to numb it before giving him shots. We have been doing this since he was 2. It really helps, but I still struggle to give him the shot. I usually hold him down and my husband gives it to him. So glad he doesn't have diabetes! I hope the treatments are working for you. I hear the side effects are worse with the pills. Hope you can knit soon!
