Wow, time is truly flying by! So much has happened since a few short months ago. Lets see...well there was Easter, four birthdays under this one little roof (me, hubby, Alex and Ryan), a great weekend away with Alex at the Revolve Tour (more on that later), The Royal Wedding (ok, this wasn't MY life but still fun to watch) and Osama.
Where to begin. First and foremost an update on Alex since after all this blog is about her! Ha Ha.....she is doing great. Her blood labs continue to come back clear and her new MRI that she did in March came back fine. Unfortunately I was sick and did not take her to her last appointment so I had to get a report from Alex and Ben (my husband). For the most part the relay of information was great but what I really wanted to know was did the MRI show any less swelling. Note to self....call Dr and ask! What we did learn is that as of now the doctor feels that the Methotrexate has started to work. She felt visually the swelling has gone way down....which it has. She did not feel that it was time to start Enbrel shots which was the best news of all. So, we are just back into status quo I guess. She will continue to take MTX every Friday and go in for regular blood labs. Her doctor appointments have been changed from monthly to every other month which is nice. She has an appointment next week for another vision test to just be sure everything looks good and that's it. I'm happy to not have much to report.
