Dr. Connelly called with fantastic news tonight. Izzy's cancer is in remission (the goal of these first 4 weeks of chemo), meaning that less than 5% of her bone marrow cells are cancerous (actually 3%) compared to 85% when she was first diagnosed. All of us including her doctors are very excited. This also means that they won't have to intensify her treatments--we will be able to stick with the original plan. Thank you all for the awesome support.
Izzy's celebration consisted of some nausea that ended in her paying homage through the mouth to the porcelain throne. We are thankful that she won't need more intense treatments as the side effects of her current treatments are becoming worse.
