Radiation Day 1

So we are here in Boston now and Isabella just completed her first day of radiation. We were in the hospital for less than two hours, but the radiation treatment itself only took about 20 minutes. The rest of the time was spent prepping, and Isabella took about an hour in the recovery room to wake up from the anesthesia. Her treatments will continue Monday through Friday for the next six weeks.

I should also note that Isabella's most recent MRI's showed great improvement and although there is still some tumor left, there are only "wisps" of cells. There may be stray cells that the MRI don't pick up which is part of the reason for radiation. We are trying to get rid of what's left to minimize the chance of recurrence.


  1. That is great news.....sounds like there is a lot of positive vibes. What do the doctors say in terms of reoccurance? Continue to know that we are praying for Isabella and your family. She is will prevail!

  2. Love and good wishes are being sent your way. You go Isabella! Kick cancer's butt!!!!

  3. Ok, running on the Wii cracked me up. Glad you guys are working in a little fun this summer. Jonah's away at camp. He misses Isabella and we all wish her the best.
