Chemo Cycle 4 Begins

Well after a nice three week delay, Isabella is back in the hospital and has started Cycle 4 of her chemotherapy. This cycle is a little different from the first three in that there is no Vincristine given at all during the cycle. They still give Isabella Carboplatin today and tomorrow, and the temodar pills for the next 5 days. The carboplatin needs to be administered in the hospital, but the temodar can be taken at home, so we should be home on Saturday.

I'd like to say that we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but to quote an old Metallica song, "the light at the end of the tunnel, is just a freight train heading your way." We're really nervous about the MRI scheduled for the 18th because that will show how much we've done and how much we really have left.


  1. Put your fauth in God who is overseeing things. Prayer is so paowerful. Fear is not as strong as prayer. We can't imagine how scarey it is to wait for MRi results, but know that between the prayers and the wonderful doctors Isabella will get better.

  2. I second Anonymous' comment. There are literally hundreds of people offering their prayers for Isabella's victory over this cancer. We love you all.

  3. Prayer is powerful, as is human strength. Isabella is a fighter - prayer and love for strength for you all
