1 year after Juvenile Dermatomyositis

Image
We have crossed the "1st year anniversary" from the time we got J's diagnosis. He has had Juvenile Dermatomyositis  (JDM) for over a year now, and at this point, we cannot be more thankful for him to have come this far of absolutely showing no signs of his illness. And earlier this month,  we marked the last day he needs to take any prednisone (steroids) His illness is still active, and we are working hard to help him reach remission. In the meantime, we are also seizing every opportunity to let him enjoy his childhood as we were told even after remission, the odds of it relapsing is 60%. The events leading up to his diagnosis can be found here.  I recalled when I wrote that post, I was still overwhelmed with emotions. We didn't know who to listen to and what kind of monster we were facing. Whatever we could find on Dr. Google pointed to this being a battle for years. For some kids, it is a lifetime.

There are times when we are so tempted to get one for him, but if you look around at local toy shops, they can be very costly. Some can go up to about $400, so that's why for a long time we willingly pay for him to have his 10min of fun at these play places. 

Week in life of a blogging mum

I started blogging more than 10 years ago, more to rant about daily ups and downs. Basically things that got me riled up and when I need an avenue to let it all out.  Then, it progressed to using the blog and different networks to help me do my day job as a marketer better, till I became a mother. This space slowly turned into our trove of memories.  We had a difficult time conceiving J, and he will likely be our only child. Hence, it is understandable that we want to create as much memories as we can so he is able to refer to this when he is older.   So. How do I keep up with all the recording?

The month of May has always been our favorite month of each year. Almost all the important events of our lives since we got married happened in May. This means we always plan big things... celebration type things, during the month.  So you can imagine how busy we were this month.
