Shot night @ the Howe house

I'm beginning to hate Sunday evenings. J and I do our MTX injections. This week was my second shot. Jordan is a pro at this but not me. Mine sting! J keeps telling me I'll get use to it so maybe?

She doesn't even flinch!

Wish I could say the same!


I hope one day we won't need these shots...

MTX does get better. I take mine in my stomach. It doesn't hurt at all. I am usually particularly tired the next day, though. So sorry you are both having to go through this. I have RA and currently take Enbrel, MTX and just started Lyrica. I'm just happy I can function. I can't imagine having a child dealing with all of this and certainly not while I was fighting it myself. Love to you all.

Poor J and poor you! I can't imagine having to have a "shot night" :(.. ((HUGS)) and give J a big hug from me to! How sweet that she is consoling mama!

Just stopping by to check on you. I hope you are all doing well. We scheduled an appointment with a Pediatric Rheumy today for our youngest. She is 10. She has swelling in both ankles one knee and both elbows. She also complains of her neck hurting a lot. Take care and keep in touch. Email me anytime if you'd like to talk...kacyacree@allstate.com
