- Last night, we got a call that Friday's echo-cardiogram showed that her central line may have moved internally, and would require an early morning X-ray to confirm; if it had moved, it would require surgery to repair. Caroline wasn't able to eat/drink after midnight last night, just in case. We were extremely worried about her having to endure another surgical procedure right before high-dose chemo, which is already rough enough. Thankfully, the X-ray showed that all is normal, and we were able to start chemo on time.
- Unrelated to the scare above, during the first full hour of chemo, we noticed that Caroline's central line was leaking blood onto her bed. We immediately called the nurses. ..they paused her chemo, and moved both chemos to one line. They found a cut in her left-side line, and luckily, the surgery team was able to fix it bedside...fascinating to watch (kind of like fix-a-flat tire patch, with super glue).
- FUN NEWS: Caroline lost her first tooth today at exactly 2:30pm (aka: toof hurty...haha...dad joke)!!! She was so proud and excited, and has been telling anyone and everyone that passes by!
Thank you very much to everyone that donated Postmates gift cards for hospital meals - they are a huge help! We appreciate all of the generosity and prayers you've sent our way!
