Avri Update

Our sweet little Avri - a couple weeks ago Kurt had to start giving her methotrexate through shots, instead of grinding up the pills. :(  The Doctor also increased her dosage.  We're really hoping this medicine starts to help a little bit more, so that we don't have to escalate to the next set of medications.  I also found out about a lady/friend in our ward who has also gone through the same medications as Avri for her own arthritis.  I knew she got sick easily, but I never knew why....  She is currently taking the Biologics, which Avri will move onto if needed.  Avri's next appointment is in a couple weeks.

We have been so blessed to be around good doctors--First at Primary Childrens in SLC and now Lucile Packard's Children Hospital at Stanford.  I know we are where we are supposed to be and it is one of the reasons we were supposed to come back to the US when we did.
