Hmmm…It’s Been A While

So it’s been a couple weeks since we had an update.  I just realized that because tomorrow, we’re going back into the City to start another round of chemo.  The last couple of weeks haven’t been all boring as we did spend a week in Florida to get away from the horrendous weather here in the Northeast.  I hope to get some pictures up shortly, but as you can imagine, I have many pictures to go through.

Anyway, as I said, Isabella starts another round of chemo tomorrow.  Her blood counts actually took longer than expected to recover, so she had an extra week to spend in school.  The doctors are putting together a different group of drugs in this round to see if we could get a better response.  As I mentioned in a previous post, tumor cells have a tendency to build resistance to chemo so it’s good to mix things up once in a while.

The good news (if there could be good news) is that this round is only expected to last 4 days, a day shorter than the previous cycles, so we should be home on Friday.  But to whet your appetite for our vacation pics, here is a teaser!
