anyone have a child with JRA or JIA?

My daughter is 5yrs old and about a yr and a hlf ago she was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.(JRA) its in her right knee only,so technically she has JIA Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.Just wonder if there were other moms out there dealing with this that i could talk to.she goes to the dr a lot for checkups,2 meds,blood work,she did physical therapy for awhile and wore a brace.She has been doing so good and now she is saying her other knee hurts and we dont know for sure if it is and all that.kinda worried and dont want to think about it too much. feel free to add me
