Charlie Starts Beavers

Charlie started Beavers on Thursday.  It has been a long time coming - he has had his name on the waiting list for over 12 months, but the day finally arrived.

He had a brilliant time, looking all grown up in his little Beaver Uniform.

Unfortunately, his arthritis has reared its ugly head again.  His knee is now the size of a small football.

Visited his consultant yesterday.  Another steroid injection needs to take place - which is really upsetting, but no parent likes to see their kids in pain, and Charlie is in so much pain at the moment.  He has become rather tearful over the last few days, especially when he starts to remember the last injection and how much it hurt.

It also looks like he will be going onto permanent medication for his arthritis - something I am not too keen on, but if it helps him lead a normal life, then bring it on.

I will keep you updated on his progress.  No matter how much pain my little boy is in, he always has a cheeky smile on his face - what a superstar.


  1. Oh honey I do feel for you and I wish there was something I could do to help...and yes you are right he always has that cheeky little smile going on so you must be doing something right...

    Loads of love from all of us....
