Chemo #1 and the baths every 6 hours around the clock are thankfully behind us now! Caroline is still getting Chemo #2 daily, with the last dose being tomorrow. Sunday will be a day of "rest" before her stem cell transplant on Monday.
Caroline had a feeding tube (aka: NG tube) placed today to help with getting nutrition and the medications she has been taking orally into her system. She's struggled with both eating and taking her meds the last couple of days, so having the tube will get her everything she needs, without worry. The process of getting the tube inserted can be scary, but Caroline was a trooper (as usual!) and did a great job, with minimal crying. The nurses and staff were absolutely wonderful during the procedure. We cannot express in words how grateful we are to be here with this team at Vandy!

In 2017, Caroline was diagnosed with Stage IV, High-Risk Neuroblastoma: an aggressive, solid-tumor cancer that spread throughout almost all of her body, including her bone marrow. She completed a 2-year clinical trial (called DFMO) in April 2021, and relapsed in April 2022. She is currently a patient at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN; this blog documents her journey.
