Five year update! Happy Birthday today Ayita! Thank you Kim for the sweetest girl. Here is a picture of her with my 4 year old great granddaughter. They met for the first time this same day.

While watching NBC Nightly News tonight, I was surprised by a beautiful story about a group named Ayita, which means first to dance...get a tissue...

To help her daughter pursue her passion for dance, Sami Gibson founded Ayita— a dance team for children who glide and spin in their wheelchairs, delighting their parents with their amazing grace.

Well, little Ayita is having another adventure--a very sad one this time. She was diagnosed with autoimmune disease last week. It seems to be attacking her joints and we think causing the dry eye problem we've had for about a year. Severe symptoms came on very suddenly and it took a week to perform all of the tests and get the results. She's on prednisone now and feeling better, although still very weak. Looking back at her chart, she has always had some intermittent lameness--since she was maybe 2 or so--she's 5 1/2 in March. Tests & X-rays have never shown any problems with the hips. We have fought with dry eye for the last year. Meds help it go away only to return with a vengeance. Ayita and I are getting really good with eye drops and ointments. Anyway, keeping a close eye on her now. Grinding up her prednisone and pain med in a little peanut butter. Sounds like it will take a little while to get the prednisone dialed in to her particular issues. I have much confidence in my vet(s). There's a team of 3 of them working with us now, including a veterinarian opthamologist. So that's my story. Kim is already aware of this.

Carolyn,  sorry to hear the news.  Glad you have confidence in the Vets!  Hope Ayita feels better soon!  :blink:

 

It's really hard to see our loved ones in pain.  I know you are doing the most you can to help Ayita get better fast!
