Great Appointment

Caroline had a routine outpatient appointment today at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, and it was great!  She gained a little weight, all of her blood counts looked good, and she didn't need any transfusions.  She also had to get an EKG and an Echocardiogram in preparation for her stem cell biopsy and harvest that are scheduled for the coming weeks.  She didn't complain one single time about anything she had to do (per usual!)...she really is the best patient we could hope for.

She will be admitted into the hospital on Monday for her bone marrow biopsy and the start of her 3rd round of chemo.  That treatment and hospital stay is expected to last 5 days.

Some days are harder than others for everyone in our house, as the shock wears off, and the reality sets in...but we keep chugging forward.  Her pure joy and smile, along with the support of our family and friends, is really pushing us through this.  Thank you all for your continued support.
