Day +7 Update

So far, Day +5 and +6 have been Isabella's most difficult days. In addition to the nausea and mucositis, she also has been battling a fever so in general she's felt pretty rotten. Since they don't know what exactly is causing the fever, they've been pumping her with all sorts of antibiotics and antifungal medicines. Isabella hasn't really felt like doing much over the last couple of days except to watch TV or listen to music since any sort of motion or activity causes her pain. Because of the pain, Isabella is hooked up to a morphine drip which she can activate with the push of a button.

The good news is that we are hoping that Isabella has turned the corner. Today, Day +7, although she still felt pretty rotten, she didn't have to throw up as often and she sat up more. Also, her temperature came back down to almost normal, so hopefully, she should begin to feel better soon (as in Sunday or Monday).


  1. Just to let you know that although I have not commented in a while I check your blog daily--my love and prayers are coming to Isabella and yoru family. May the Lord continue to watch over you all.

  2. Isabella--keep strong and be tough. Know that many people are praying for you.

  3. We continue to pray for Isabella and all of you everyday.
