Today was my daughter's 3rd Remicade infusion. Her Dr. moved it up a week since she has been flaring a little
PLEASE hope for us that THIS IS IT! I am so worried about
my daughter, especially her mental health. She has been flaring on & off since last November. I want SO badly for her to enjoy the rest of the summer and be able to be healthy and strong for when 8th grade starts August 31st
There has been nothing normal about
this child's life since November 2008 when she first got sick. I don't think it is too much to ask for her to have a period of remission!!!!
Dr. also increased the dose from 300 to 500 (not sure if that is MG or what) She is also doing Cort enemas
