Super Trooper

Gabrielle's been a super trooper the past two days, fending off reactions to the cyclophosphomide and ATG that brought her temperature up to 40º and heart rate up to 240 bpm. Last night was better than the night before when Amy was up with her until 3am, then 5am, and then the whole day.  Here's a quick video of Amy and Gabrielle working through the fever.


  1. My heart goes out to you both. Give Gabrielle a kiss and sing her 'Paddy Maginty' for me. That's what Grandpa Billy sang to me when I was in the hospital as a little girl. It always puts a smile on my face :)

  2. Go, Go Gabrielle!! What a little super-hero. I've got people in my office pitching in to buy a bunch of Children's Home lottery tickets. Not completely selfless donations (big prize involved) but people need incentive sometimes! It won't be much but I wanted to do something, anything to help. Thinking of you guys lots. xox
