Day 18 (and some backtracking)

I'm sorry I haven't been able to update the blog in a few days. I wasn't in touch with the Lees for a couple of days, and wasn't on Facebook to share some of Esther's photos, so I will go back and post those photos. (I will backdate them for chronology's sake, so you're not crazy for not seeing them before. It's called blog magic!) There is a brief explanation of Gwen's skin therapy from Day 16 as well.

Ava was previously on two different types of isolation before. She was taken off one yesterday (I believe respiratory isolation), and they were hopeful that Ava could be taken off contact isolation today... which would mean that she could walk around and leave her hospital room!  Unfortunately, Ava had a fever and diarrhea this morning, so she remains in isolation.

(From Esther's FB):
Day 18:

Ava woke up with a fever this morning and had to get a chest x-ray to check for pneumonia. We're slightly bummed because today was the day that she may have qualified to get out of isolation. Although we are disappointed, we remember God's awesome blessings throughout this journey. Thank you for being with us in spirit and in prayer. Ava is so grateful for her prayer warriors!

A sleeping Ava being transported to X-ray.
Normally she would be wearing a mask
due to being on isolation, but since she was sleeping,
Esther opted to cover her instead for less disturbance.

It's hard to be waken up after a restless night to get a chest X-ray!
Let's be done with this cancer thing already!
Thanks for praying for Ava!
