Thank you so much! I greatly appreciate it and all your advice. We feel very lucky she is under this rheumys care. They called him at 4 am and he was there by 4:30 they did an IV of 100 mg of prednisone which helped and put her on indocin 75 mg 2x a day today finally she feels good . The only thing is her ankles are very swollen so keeping an eye on that . But we will get thru this and its not the worse thing that can happen. Seeing all those little ones with much more serious health problems puts things into perspective . Take care & thank you againView Thread
