Hi! I wanted to join your group because I am a mother of two wonderful children who have Systemic Onset Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. I am sure that there are some of you saying, what in the world is that?? It is a form of arthritis that goes through the joints, organs and vessels. It causes issues with the liver, heart, colon, and any other organ! It also causes severe pain in the joints and can criple the joints as well. It has been a long hard road and we are still finding new things every day, but it has been a true learning experiance for me and my family! We go to Cleveland Clinic three times a week and the children get IV meds along with blood test and all sorts of other goodies! They are both severly immune suppressed so when they get the common cold they are addmitted into PICU ASAP because it can kill them. Their bodies cannot fight germs like normal healthy bodies can. It has been a huge change in my life and I would not trade my kids for anything but I hate to see them in pain!
