My name is Amber and my daughter Peyton was recently diagnosed with PolyArticular Juvenile Arthritis and tested positive for the ANA antibody (has to do with the eyes), negative for the RH factor. With all of this news a friend suggested, to start to tell her story through a blog, so here I am. I will try to share Peyton's story from a mothers insight, to share with everyone how the doctors came to her diagnosis, to educate loved ones on her diagnosis, and to help find a cure for Juvenile Arthritis. A blog seems to be the easiest way to convey it to many people at one time and tell her story over the last two months and about how the doctors came to this conclusion this past week. Maintaining a blog also seemed like the easiest way to keep everyone aware of her current challenges for those who want to keep praying for her. We are grateful for each of you who are standing beside Peyton and us during this fight. We Thank you and could not express in words how grateful we are for all of you and for all of all your prayers. I plan to keep the blog going as long as I can and it doesn't hinder with her care, so we can share her story with you and how God is working in her life everyday regardless of the diagnosis she has been given. We have seen that even in her darkest hour we can see His grace being given to her in different situations that He is helping her along the way. When I was carrying her in my stomach and we decided to name her with the middle name "Grace", we did not know, that the middle name we gave her would be her saving grace. GRACE what a beautiful thing that He gives us and even when we are at our lowest, He loves us enough to send us an extra amount of grace. I will be posting another blog soon about Peyton's journey and the yucky details of her treatment, how we got here and the horrible medications, that we now have to inject every week from here on out. However, I did not want it to be part of my first time I am able to share with you about her and her diagnosis.
