Just a wee note to say that i have been awol as Katie was in hospital for surgery.... thanks to all who prayed and sent messages and cards!!! they really helped us get through :)
The surgery (minor to the docs but huge to us) was to clear out her jaw joints, remove the debris, add in steroids and anaesthetic and shave off a teeny tiny bit of bone to stop it locking.... she also had steroid injections to her wrists and elbow..... im amazed that i didnt see how bad they were. As a mother we can see so much, but being human we dont see it all.
Since she had her operation, her pain levels have drastically reduced and she cant stop eating... its wonderful to see her chewing again and biting into things. !!!!
Just wanted to share some photos of Katie looking adorable whilst receiving her drip treatment... she gets this for her arthritis every 6 weeks and her only complaint is that she is utterly bored bored bored being wired up for 3-4 hours :) ok also that they monitor her BP and temp every 15 minutes as well.... oh and that she cant move around as much as she wants to..... and the complaint we go through every morning before we go..... DO I HAVE TOO???? promptly followed by..... yes you bloody well do so get dressed and lets go torag!!
Its amazing how i find that i need to snap all of her moments in life. I cant help myself and i remember where and roughly when each photo was taken.
