MLK Day Update

Isabella was finally starting to lose the effects of the chemo over the weekend when she suddenly spiked another fever this morning. As you read before, Isabella has been nauseous and not able to eat, but finally on Saturday and Sunday, she was able to eat little bits and pieces and kept it down. Last night, she started feeling more sluggish and finally this morning when they took her temperature, she was up to 102.

They gave her some Tylenol and some antibiotics and her fever is back down and she is feeling a little better. All of her blood counts are still normal, but dropping pretty quickly, so it's not helping that she hasn't been eating. They have been running IV fluids to keep her hydrated.

We were possibly hoping to get her home on a day pass after her morning therapy was done, but obviously, we won't be able to do that.
