2013 Jingle Bell Run benefiting the Arthritis Foundation

Today was the Jingle Bell Run for Montgomery, AL.  A lot of money was raised...YEA!  Best of all, Savannah was able to walk most of the 5K race...something she has not been able to do the previous two Jingle Bell runs!  Whoo Hoo!!  Thank you to all our close friends who walked/ran with us in the race.  You are such a blessing in our lives!

Medical update on Savannah:

Savannah started back on methotrexate yesterday.  She will take it along with the sulfasalazine.  Savannah's rheumatologist called today to confirm the rashes on Savannah's body appear to be psoriasis, another complication/symptom of Savannah's arthritis. The methotrexate should help with the psoriosis and joint pain, though.  The good outweighs the bad, so we are thankful!

Juvenile Arthritis, affecting 300,000 Kids in the U.S.

Great video!  When the children in this video talk about it hurting to write in school with arthritic hands...this is totally Savannah.  Thanks, Teri, for raising money and awareness for Juvenile Arthritis!
