Arthritis Walk

Pouring rain. Just slightly warmer than the Jingle Bell Run. But very fun to see a sign with your face on it & walk the entire 5k without complaints. It was a first: 1st time Charlotte walked 3 miles (shocked really!!!) & 1st arthritis walk in Vancouver WA (this was along the Columbia river & usually its along the Willamette river in Portland, OR). We had Ellie's BFF join us (that's Sophia behind Ellie) & Charlotte's preschool friend, Lily, walk with us on this very, very, VERY wet & cold day. The sign is inaccurate & I snorted when I read, "4 years" & asked, "anyone have a sharpie??? Add some plusses to that 4 years!" Which led to great conversation & education about Charlotte's setback during weaning & how she's back on every 4 weeks with the remicade, and currently on eye drops. Next eye appt is this week...
