Madeline Hits the Two Year Mark

We have reached a very important milestone at the Ducote House. On December 7, we celebrated the benchmark of Madeline being in remission for 2 years. Now, we just need 3 more years to know juvenile dermatomyositis will be history forever! And we have absolute faith it will! Love you baby girl!!! Keep dancing...keep shining! I hope this gives all of you who have children suffering from this terrible disease HOPE. Keep the faith!

Here is a picture of Madeline (2008) at her classroom birthday party. Here you will notice her malar rash and grottron's papules on her hands. Of course at this time we had no idea what was going on.

Here is a picture of Madeline at her 9th birthday party. The only redness you see now is the nornal redness from running around at your birthday party. My, what a difference a year makes.
