Maddie is having an arthritis flair in her left ankle. She goes months between flairs and they have always been in her knees. This one hit hard and fast.  She started complaining of pain a couple days ago and now she is unable to walk. The Naproxen doesn't seem to be helping. I called her primary care doctor and her Rheumatologist and requested a wheelchair or crutches. I can't carry her with my arthritic back. Both doctors said no, she would have to be seen first. This couldn't have come at a worse time. Maddie is performing in the Nutcracker this weekend, that is if she can even walk.
