Arthritis
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Drew's grandmother was very achy today. "What's the matter?" Drew asked his grandmother.
 
2     "My arthritis is acting up," his grandmother complained. "The weather isn't helping any either. I think I'll lie down for a bit, dear."
 
3     "OK, Grandma," Drew said. He decided to look in his encyclopedia to learn more about his grandmother's condition.
 
4     Drew learned that arthritis is an inflammation of the joints. It is actually a general term for 100 different diseases. It limits everyday activities.
