Savannah keeps smiling!
Just a short update. Savannah had an ultra sound done on her feet and ankles last week in Birmingham. The doctor saw some arthritis in her achilles tendon area and some permanent damage/deterioration in her toe bones (damage that was probably there before she started treatment). Savannah still struggles to walk when she first wakes up in the morning, but she manages by rolling around in her desk chair (which she uses until her feet and ankles loosen up from the morning arthritis stiffness). She has another Orencia infusion and a follow up MRI on her jaw in a little over a week. We are thankful for the improvement we have seen on the medicine. We continue to take one day at a time and to enjoy life despite the obstacles. Thank you God for leading the way.
