Here are some pictures of Millie and her journey with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. For some reason, they are posted backwards, so start at the bottom so see them in order starting from April until now.
Appt where they taught me how to do her shot
All her Chemo "gear"
At a Rheumy appt, such a good sport
Lab work done and showing off her Justin Bieber sticker
In the ball pit at physical therapy kicking her legs
All checked in for her joint injections procedure in her knees and ankles
On our way home from Phoenix Children's Hospital
Same day as her joint injections, she started to walk again!
Her scar from the surgery when they washed out the joint, drained fluid and did a biopsy on her inflamed tissue.
Healing from the surgery
This was my life for two months, huge pregnant with a toddler stuck to my hip. Never wanna do that again! It was rough!
When her left ankle first started to swell
Our second trip to Cardons when we were admitted for four days
In a good mood
Sleeping was so rough
Miserable after surgery
She'd be so happy leaving the hospital room for walks, especially if we visited the train set up downstairs
She was such a trooper with the splint, she barely complained
On our way home from Cardons with her splint on
Millie patiently waiting for some answers and playing with us at our first visit to Cardons
A very scary/yucky moment for me when Millie was sedated for draining fluid from her knee
A few days after her rash was gone, her swollen knee was way worse
Pictures from Millie's "hives", when we first noticed the swelling in her right knee
