Sorry to hear about your little guy. I don't know if this will help or not. My nephew was diagnosed with JRA
at the age of 2. My sister and I were out yard saleing and he collapsed on us and couldn't walk. They did
all sorts of blood tests and found the JRA. The Drs put him on 18 baby asprin a day and it was 6 months
before he could walk again. He was in remission for years. He is now 32ish and aches some but maybe that
did the trick. Now drs. are so drug happy that something that simple might work. Both my boys (now 30 and 35)
have some forms of arthritis. I was 7 when I came down with it (I'm 55) and so was my dad. My grandaughter
has had some minor discomfort from it since she was 9 and she's now 13. Her joints are now cracking and
popping. It seems to be a very heridity type of disease. Both of us get relief from hot showers.
