Izzy's energy level improved this week as she only had the intrathecal chemo in her spinal tap and none put in to her blood stream. It was fun to see her with enough energy to play a little more.
However, a new side effect we are seeing is that it hurts her to use her legs. Several times she has had to use chairs or sisters to pull herself up after sitting on the ground and then hobbles around a bit.
On Wednesday, we had Dr. Connelly over for dinner and a stimulating round of Pretty, Pretty Princess, which unfortunately he didn't win--Izzy did. But we did get to see him wear plastic princess jewelry.
We now realize it probably wasn't the best decision, but in an effort to get outside--where Izzy has a lesser chance of catching something--while her counts are up and she has some energy we went to the Domino's petting farm. We had a great time. And we did some crazy post-animal-slime sanitation.
