Did a great job with her mask on the airplane.
Cousins, gotta love 'em!
Showing off her "cute little bubble."
Sandbox fun with Aunt Ali and the sisters.
Izzy and I just got back from Idaho and Utah last night, again parting with Cory (back to Dallas) and Ryan and Lorin who stayed with Gma and Gpa Costley. Izzy got to milk a cow, chase goats, pick peas, swim a lot, and get lots of lovin' from all the peeps that have missed her so much. Although there were some puking family members and others with fevers, Izzy thankfully stayed healthy the whole time.
Now back to the grind. Today her platelets were too low for her scheduled procedures (spinal tap, chemo) so they pushed us back another week. So 4 months left of the intense 6 1/2 months which has turned into 7 months due to the 2 setbacks we've had. (confusing? Sorry.)
On Friday she is getting an EMG (follow-up tests to make sure they know what caused her speach issues 2 weeks ago) which consists of them poking needles into her muscles to see how her nerves react. So it will be a tough day for her, darn it.
We're hanging on tight to the memory of the 10 days they gave us--thanks to everyone who made them so great!
