*My 13 yr old is an old lady that turns purple* My 13 yr old daughter has Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, (Lupus) which means multiple overlapping autoimmune diseases. She has Dermatomyositis, & Juvenile Arthritis. Yup, arthritis. She turns purple when her hands and feet get cold, which can happen from A/C. She was first diagnosed at age 6. My 11 yr old son has Psoriatic Arthritis. All of these are Autoimmune Arthritis. We share so you can learn!

Well, despite the 2 heavy-duty antibiotics that she's on, Emily is still coughing, sneezing and stuffy. On the plus side, her fever is down. Her temp was "normal" today- 98.6F. Of course, her normal is usually around 97.1F. She had her sinuses scanned by CT yesterday, and we have a follow-up appointment with her pediatrician tomorrow. She actually wants to go to school tomorrow. I have no reason to keep her home if she wants to go, but I am worried that she hasn't kicked this thing. I made her use our nebulizer a little while ago. She said that it did help " a little bit", but not significantly. I don't really know what to think. I am hopeful that our pedi will have some answers tomorrow.
