We're in Remission!!!

I keep meaning to get on here an update everyone with how Bev has been doing, but frankly, life happens and I slack off.  The last year has been pretty busy with us and I just haven’t had a lot of time.

But the good news that I have to share is that BEVIN IS IN REMISSION!!!!

As of Thursday May 23rd she had her last MTX shot for hopefully a really long time! J  She is currently medication free and has no active arthritis!  We took her off the Naproxen back in August and in December because she had no active arthritis while on the medication we decided to start weaning the medication.

Bev’s SED rate is the LOWEST it’s been since she was diagnosed!!!!

So for now we are medication free with no active arthritis!  We still have to get her eyes checked regularly and see Dr. Radhakrishna every 3-6 months to make sure that she remains that way, but she is a happy girl and we are excited!!

  6. We have successfully invented a New Non-invasive Method and Apparatus for Early Prognosis and Diagnosis of Arthritis. The hypothesis behind the invention has already been approved by an authorized Medical Journal publishing body, namely Journal of OsteoArthritis and Cartilage. Our future plans are to make the device and method more marketable in terms of user friendliness and portability.
