Recovering / Break Until Dec. 26th

Caroline is finally recovering from a very challenging late November and early December.  She is starting to eat better, and is getting her energy back a little bit more each day.  She is still on a 4x/day antibiotic medication for her intestinal infection, which will hopefully get resolved by her next admission.

Thankfully, she has still been able to enjoy some fun holiday activities this week: baking with friends, a fun visit with Santa, a drive-thru Christmas lights display, making gingerbread houses while on FaceTime with her Baltimore family, a playdate in the yard, and some long overdue homeschool work with Ms. Elise!  Caroline was super excited that her hair has grown out just long enough to clip in a bow!  When she was first diagnosed and started losing her hair, she wanted us to hide all of her bows because she said it made her sad to see them...but this week she pulled them all out and has been having fun trying them all on again!

Although we are both still feeling a heightened sense of anxiety right now, we are extra grateful for this time at home with family.  Barring any setbacks, we should be home until December 26th, when she's scheduled to be admitted for Round 3 of Immunotherapy.

Thank you for keeping our family in your prayers this Holiday Season!

Merry Christmas!

The Lantz Family
