|Abigail let me borrow this!|
I have gotten a few texts and emails asking about Lucianna's health and wanted to post something just to keep everyone updated. Currently, we are in a waiting game to see if the latest increase in the Methotrexate drug has eliminated the inflammation that persists in her left eye. We are also giving her Curcumin (Meriva brand), that we learned through a medical study has shown to assist those with Uveitis. We don't know if it'll work, but her ophthalmologist says that it won't hurt. I haven't heard her complain about her eyes and I haven't seen redness, (knock on wood). The only eye issue she has is significant sensitivity to light. When outside, she wears sunglasses everywhere she goes. She is practically unable to open her eyes without sunglasses. We have had a busy summer so far- lots of playdates/sleepovers, a visit to NY in May, June and July. Swimming lessons,(the first round of two weeks worth) and our first "cousins vacation" to Sesame Place! Lucianna's mobility is awesome. She tires out when doing long or strenuous walks, (but so would I!) We still keep her stroller close at hand for those scenario's and so far she seems completely comfortable jumping in it when it's needed.

If I don't post anything next week or you don't get an email/text, consider Bella A-OK. :) As for Miss L, we will know August 21st if there has been an improvement in her eyes.
We hope all of you are enjoying your summer and staying cool!
