So today I recieved a copy of the referal letter the Opthalmologist sent to the rheumatologist that Jackson will be seeing in Minneapolis. After reading the referal it sounds like they are pretty sure Jackson has Juvenile Rheumatiod Arthritis (JRA). After trying to define all the medical words and doing my own research I am convinced he more than likely had JRA. He has a lot of the symptoms. JRA is a auto immune disease that is chronic that damages and destroys the joints. A autoimmune disease means the bodys immune system mistakenly attacks the tissues its suppose to protect. So I guess we will see and deal with it as best as we can. Thank you to those that pray and send thoughts to Jackson it is so appreciated!
