Today my mom finally had her rheumatology appointment.

And she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.

RA is what has been causing her to have limited ability to perform her daily activities of life, increased pain, and the frustration caused by both.

Now that she has a diagnosis, I’m hoping her doctor will help get her on a proper regimen of medication and that the symptoms improve.

As for me, I have to learn a little more about this autoimmune disease…I remember only snippets from my med/surg nursing class!

I hope you start feeling better soon Mom.  I love you.
