Izzy thinks her swollen lymph glands just mean she gets to miss algebra for a day. Then she goes to the doctor and finds out she has cancer. Before she knows it she's hooked to an IV in the hospital, surrounded by nurses using words like "chemotherapy" and "PICC line." Mom is crying, her best friend's parents won't let her visit, and classmates she barely knows are writing her cards saying they miss her. Yuck. Even if the biopsy hadn't made her nauseated, Izzy would want to puke.
