.... continuing from last post: The Dr. recommended we do stretch out Charlotte's current Remicade treatments from 4 to 5 weeks. He believed this was a good route to take given her current ability to hold steady since August w/out steroid eye drops. The route we are taking w/ Remicade & MTX is working, now lets see how well its holding & if we are starting to nip it in the bud.
So this Thursday is the 1st 5'weeker (like a niner) Remicade treatment. We just had her eye appt today where all is quiet in the pretty blues. Charlotte also had her eyes dilated since we hadn't done that in awhile. That wasn't fun for her but necessary. It allows the ophthalmologist to look at the optic nerve & make sure there is no damage there. It also allows her to check vision more accurately than the picture tests Charlotte wings every month (we adults do letters, children do visual pictures of single objects: hand, car, cake, horse, telephone).
All is good. Amazing body clock in her though, she's been asking since this weekend when she is going to the hospital. She knows its coming....without a calendar its like her body alarm has gone off & she wants to prep the pouting, the depression, the whining :) Its good to get a head start on those things! HA!
We had some hot cocoa tonight w/ dinner since the rain wouldn't stop & it was a bit stormy: some warm chocolate was needed! So here's the girls after getting a shot of whip cream in their mouths! (another piece of evidence that we wear a Tottie's Prettie every day, even w/ jammies!)
