Chemo - Round 4

Caroline is in the hospital for Round 4 of chemo.  So far, so good.  Luckily, she doesn't need a steroid this round, so that's a relief!  This is a shorter round...she only has 3 nights of chemo...but 3 VERY long nights.  The medicine is spread over about 7 hours, and it starts at 11pm.  We're running on fumes, but she definitely had a fun-filled day today, despite hardly any sleep in 24 hours.

We had some visitors, her room got a Valentine's Day makeover, she got her picture taken by "Flashes of Hope," met Lana Del Rey in Seacrest Studios, and got a rainbow unicorn balloon from Molly's brother!  All-in-all, a good day, considering.

Andrew is sick, and has been home from school since last Friday, so he isn't able to visit Caroline during this stay, but they still talk over FaceTime.  Nona and Papa (Margaret's parents) are in town, so that's always helpful.

We anticipate going home either late tomorrow night, or Thursday.  The next big step is the CT scan which is scheduled for 2/19.  We're hoping the scan shows significant progress, which would allow the surgical team to then remove what is left of the main tumor (in her mid-section).

Thank you, everyone, for all the support for Caroline and the rest of our family.
