Staying Here for Halloween

She really was perking up yesterday, but Izzy is feeling downright nasty today with constant diarrhea, belly aches and random fevers. The cultures are not showing anything bacterially growing, but apparently there are still spots in the body that could be hoarding an infection that doesn't show up in the blood cultures. So they don't feel good about letting her go, and honestly I don't either with how yucky she feels.

She wanted to trick or treat to the rooms with the kids though, so with some strian we were able to get her SuperGirl costume on and move her to the stroller. Things were going pretty well (she pointed to me every time she needed to say "trick or treat" so that I would say it for her), but then one of the connectors on her Port tube broke apart and we were half way down the hall before anyone realized the blood trailing behind--nice Halloween surprise. If only she had been a vampire it would have all fit together a little better, but SuperGirl bleeding? Com'on :)

We hope she feels better soon. I'll keep you posted when I can. (I'll post pictures when we get home)

Dang! I'm sorry Izzy won't be home for Halloween. We'll hang onto some candy and she can do a route through the neighborhood when she's home--she definitely deserves some treats! Hang in there!

Let us know what we can do to help! Meals, Halloween candy, moral support, anything. We're sure praying for you guys and we hope Izzy feels better soon!

So sorry you are all still dealing with these difficulties. We're praying she can get better soon and finish that next round of chemo and move on to greener pastures. Good luck the next few days!

I guess this Halloween is more of a trick than a treat. I love to hear about how each of you are trying to make the best of your circumstances!

We love you! We would love to have Skype trick or treating visit!

We have not checked the blog in a while, but because Izzy is in all of our family prayers, the kids wanted an update. Wow! we are so impressed with your strength and endurance. Izzy is pretty cute with no hair. She could start a trend. Think about no more snarls or tangles!!We hope you feel better soon and we will keep you in our prayers.
Lots of love and concern, The Murphys
