We are back at NYU in the Pediatric department. Isabella had a slight fever this afternoon and since she is neutropenic, we didn't want to take chances so we drove her in. Her temperature was 102 at one point, but the last measurement had it at 100.3. The standard treatment is to give her antibiotics and watch her blood cultures for 48 hours, so we'll be here a couple of days. Isabella was a little groggy earlier, but has since perked up. She also had a couple of nose bleeds so she may need a platelet transfusion too.


  1. We think and pray about you all so much. Sending Isabella much love this evening.

  2. I will be attending a special mission at St. Thomas run by Fr. Bill McCarthy (who is amazing) on Sunday through Wednesday nights at 7:00 P.M. which includes healing masses. I will especially keep Isabella and all of you in my prayers.

  3. We're keeping up with your posts and keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Lean on us when you need to and let us know when you need us.

  4. prayers and blessings to isabella. may the lord's blessings strengthen her.....if ever you need help with anything (childcare with your other children, preamde dinners for your family, etc.) please post it and let us know. there are so many of us who want to help....please let us know how.

  5. Hi Isabella - we hope you are feeling better and able to come back home soon.

    Suzy, Joe, Jordan & Alyssa
