Izzy loves parties, but not pity parties.

If you want to feel sorry for someone, please don't feel sorry for her or our family.

This blog is for family and friends to keep up with Izzy and to document what a tough little girl she really is...

Don't worry - - she will kick cancers butt!

Izzy has to get her antibiotic through her PICC 4 times a day. She has one that she does 3 times a day and runs for 30 minutes and then another one she gets once a day and runs for 36 minutes. Dustin has been incredible about making sure we stay on schedule and keeping everything very sterile and clean. Izzy gets a little bored when we do the antibiotics, but it is much better than having to be at the hospital.

Her home health nurse came today to change the dressing around the PICC and also check her wound from the removal of her PORT. She was pretty sore because once they place the PICC it can be very tender around that area.

This week we go in for chemo on Tuesday since the clinic is closed for the holiday tomorrow. We will have the home health nurse come draw her labs tomorrow to check her counts because this week her chemo is count dependent. When we left the hospital her ANC was low so she isn't able to be around kids, sick people, and crowds, so it was the pits that she wasn't able to go to Christmas Eve with my all my cousins at Grandma Burnside's house and she also missed out on Christmas day for brunch at my Moms. However, we are still happy she is home and we are focusing on the positive side of everything!

You can't see her PICC and the antibiotics that are sitting on the side of her in the picture, but I am amazed that we are able to do so much of this at home. It makes a huge difference for Izzy to be with her brother and her dog so I'm so glad to be home.

Much Love,
