Radiation Week 2 Finished!

Isabella completed her second week of radiation today. I stayed home all week for work, while Julianne stayed in Boston with Isabella, Annalise and Nathaniel. They came home today for the weekend and will go back on Sunday to continue for the third week of treatment. There's nothing new to report from the treatment, which is how I like it. Isabella has experienced no side effects from the radiation and continues to enjoy the summer with her siblings.

One thing I should mention is that every single doctor we've seen so far are completely amazed at Isabella's progress. Whether it's the oncologist, or radiologist or therapist, they are amazed how great Isabella looks given the size of her original tumor. They've seen children with tumors half the size with many more problems than Isabella has. So for that, we're grateful. Everything that Isabella has had to go through in her young life is just not fair, but the way Isabella has handled everything is such an inspiration to us.


  1. Isabella, you are an inspiration to us all. Your fight has reminded me not to worry about the little things. Whenever it feels like life is getting crazy it takes about 5 seconds to remember the little powerhouse that you are and what is really important - life, love, family & friends. I am SOOOO happy to continue to hear the good news and progress you make every day.

  2. It's wonderful to hear that the treatments have been so effective. We'll continue to pray for Isabella's complete recovery.

  3. My family and I are thrilled to hear Isabella's amazing progress. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.Isabella you are a true inspiration to all big and small...

  4. Good to see you this week - have a wonderful family weekend! Isabella and you all are an inspiration to our family.
