Upcoming Scans

Well we made it back from Camp Sunshine and everyone had a blast.  I hope to post some pictures and videos from the incredible week that we had.  In the meantime, we have a couple scans scheduled for Isabella in the next couple of days.  On Sunday, August 14, we have a PET Scan scheduled that will hopefully provide some more insight into what the new spot in Isabella's brain is.  Then on Tuesday, we have another MRI scheduled which will show whether the spot has grown or not.

We do continue to hope that this is a giant mistake, but our hopes of that were diminished over the past week as Isabella displayed more weakness on her right side in both her hand and her feet.  This is usually a sign of some tumor activity.  But hopefully we'll know for sure in the next few days. 

I think the worst part in the last couple of weeks has been the uncertainty.  If we know definitively what is going on, at least we can formulate a plan.  Until then, all we can do is worry and wait.


  1. we are with you all the strong...we keep praying for your family and more for Isabella.Take care and God bless you always and give you strength.

  2. Love and prayers coming your way. Take things one day at a time and let the Lord guide you. Praying for good results and for Isabella,s health-

  3. Hi Icatar family,

    I just wanted to say hello and tell you what a pleasure it was to have Annalise as part of the 9-12 group at Camp Sunshine. I have been checking to see which of the families from camp have Caringbridge sites, blogs, etc., and I was so excited to find this page for Isabella. I'm praying that her scans have been going well and that the results are good. Special hello to Annalise!
