After 10 days home, we're finally settling in and getting back to our routine...for now.
Caroline went to clinic this past Monday and again today. Her coloring is great, she's been acting more like herself, but her insides are still really fighting hard to recover from the high-dose chemo. Her ANC/Neutrofils/White Blood Cell "counts" are still really low. In fact, if we were inpatient right now, they would not even be high enough for her to be discharged. Luckily, she doesn't have a fever, so we're able to continue to recover at home. Caroline will remain in isolation (at home) until her counts come up...which we're hoping happens this weekend. She got another Neupogen shot today, which is her 19th Neupogen shot since she finished the high-dose chemo right before her stem cell transplant. Just as a refresh, the Neupogen shot helps revv up her white blood cell count, but her body is just taking a longer time to recover. We return to clinic on Monday to check again.
Thank you for the continued prayers, meals, gift cards, generous gifts...everything! Thank you for sticking with us through this long, hard journey.
Reminder, if you're local, we'd love to see you next Thursday (6/28), at the event our awesome friend Autumn is hosting! Click here to purchase tickets. Hope to see you there!
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.
