We're Home...with Pictures!

Wow it is so nice to be home!! Izzy was feeling so well and eating/drinking accordingly, that they unhooked her from her IV/Med pole for much of yesterday. This means playing on the 8th floor balcony playstructure, walking to the gift shop with Chrstine (see pics), and showing all the nurses and doctors how cute she is trying to run down the hall with atrophied muscles. So they said we could go and she started bawling "I don't wanna go home!" Here are some great pictures and accompanying descriptions:

Not so happy about the fully awake CT-scan.


Quite happy about the cute little x-ray chair (checking for throat absess, etc).





















Extremely happy about the 2 kitties Christine insisted on buying her.

Maybe Izzy's reservations about going home had something to do with the cage full of hamsters that was awaiting her (or maybe the cage EMPTY of hamsters if they escaped while you were gone:)) I'm so glad to hear that you're home and will be praying that you're able to make your trip on Friday.
Love tons,
Jenny

I've been thinking about all of you and am glad to hear Izzy is back home. I hope you're able to make your trip, but either way I pray for Izzy's health and all of you. Looking forward to seeing you in a couple months.

As my treatments are over now and I am in the recovery and healing phase,I send all my thoughts and prayers to all of you and especially Izzy. She is such a tough girl!! My chemo (Cisplatin) caused me to lose all sense of taste and also to have very, very shaky handwriting and poor fine motor coordination. I also stumble over words/phrasing from time to time and my typing is slow and pathetic. I sympathize with your family very much. Take care of yourselves and remember you are always in our family prayers.

We're praying that all goes according to plans this weekend- most importantly that Izzy stays healthy! We can't wait to squeeze you guys!

Love you!
