It's Back!! Arthritis has returned, but she pushes forward.
It started with pain in her knee. Then pain in her ankles. Then she had trouble writing. We knew the signs, but you just want to pretend it is not there. The pain never really left, but it had become manageable. Now, to write three sentences is a challenge. She is in athletics 7th period because she is on the School Swim Team first semester. Swim= Awesome for joints! Running stadium steps second semester to "stay in shape"= totally horrible for someone with active arthritis in her knees and ankles. Yet, she refuses to give up because she doesn't want to be seen as different. Can anyone else relate?? Love this girl. If you can relate, know you are not alone. Savannah is walking this path with you...and some days the walk is awfully hard. She still pushes forward, though...because she chooses to.
