Finally Back Home!

So we finally got Isabella home after spending most of the day in New York City.  We were planning on leaving around noon, but her blood counts were low.  They gave us the option of either getting a transfusion today or coming back to the city tomorrow, so of course we opted to get the transfusion today.  Plus, the kids favorite clown, Looney Lenny stopped by in the afternoon to entertain everyone.  Isabella and Annalise had a great time and both showed great enthusiasm and participated with the magic show.

We also ended up eating dinner at the hospital and finally left around 7pm.  It’s all worth it since we don’t have to go back in until Tuesday (unless Isabella develops a  fever).

What was also nice was the New York city streets weren’t too bad after the snowstorm.  Connecticut was a mess after we got 2 feet of snow, but at least the highways and the City were cleaned up and made the trip a breeze.

Anyway, here are a couple pics from the last couple days.  The plan for the next couple weeks is to try to keep Isabella from developing a fever which would require us to stay at the hospital for another week.  We’ll also probably do another MRI in a couple weeks to see what’s going on in there, then decide what the next course of action is.

Nathaniel, still with his clown-phobia, wouldn’t even look at Looney Lenny.


Finally, this picture was from a while ago, but we call it “The Anna Lisa”.
