Sorry that there have been no updates this week.  We have had a flu/cold around our house. Thankfully James has not been sick, we all stayed away from him.  I dont want him to get this with his immune system already low. 

He is still doing good with his medicines and still working at his judo.  We are proud of him!

Nausea getting better

The nausea that James was experiencing has been getting better, only happens every once in a while now. 
He has been having increased trouble in his knee, but is working through it and not letting it affect him much.

James started going back to judo last night, he wasnt going to go because he was feeling nauseated.  But he was glad he did.  We took a break during the holidays.  James was also feeling a little upset about the movement restrictions in his knee and hip, but he did a great job last night! Judo is good exercise for him and he loves it.

Increased Medicine

the dr increased the methotrexate James takes to 8 pills every week.  So far he has been doing ok, not a whole lot of nausea yet.  Also found out that after 6 months or so, James will have to have a liver biopsy to make sure his liver is not being affected by the medicine.
