Isa had lumbar puncture, and gets steroids. She is getting mean and hungry! She has had a cough for 6 weeks, that the doc has not given her anything for. Both NP and Onc doc have said her lungs sound clear. She takes methotrexate every monday, 6-mercapataurine each night and steroids for 5 days out of every month.
And as I review some of the older posts…..

The title of the blog, is ISA, Leukemia, Life. So this blog contains infomration about my daughter. about leukemia and about my life, essentially, it is my blog. As an only child, i have reached out to the internet to somewhat be my support system, my friend if you will. At one point Web Logs were considered Journals.
This is a blog about what being a parent of a child with cancer is like FOR ME. I bared my soul, so I would feel better. Writing helped me clarify and organize thoughts that had no other place to be. Other parents likely have had different experiences from mine and my Caring Bridge account is full of them. At times, that could mean that i need to vent, or to name call or scream or to cry. I try to write in such a way that people will be interested. Is it appropriate to stop loving someone because they aren’t loving enough, in your opinion.
Currently I have stopped writing for the moment because, I have no internet at home, and can only use it periodically and in short bursts (which do not lend themselves to writing for me) ( and usually using it with two kids….remember one takes steroids.)
MY child has cancer. I feel bad. I wrote about it. I’m sorry .
