Isabella Strahan is “feeling” as she spends time at home between chemotherapy appointments.

In the latest installment of her YouTube series, posted Wednesday, Strahan gave viewers a peek of everyday life at home in New York City.

The college student and daughter of “Good Morning America” co-host Michael Strahan is in good spirits during her new installment, beginning with a surprise visit by her twin sister, Sophia.

“Oh my gosh! I’m getting so many surprises! This is why you wouldn’t answer my calls,” Isabella said, bursting into happy tears while embracing her sister, who’s away attending Duke University. Sophia explained that she ignored the calls to pull off the surprise.

“I was on the plane, and I’m like, she won’t stop FaceTiming me; this is not the time,” Sophia said through laughter before hugging Isabella and expressing love.
