Still Inpatient / NYE 2018-9

We are ending 2018 where we started it: on 6A...the pediatric oncology wing at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. Although we certainly would rather be at home, we are glad Caroline is getting the care she needs from the amazingly compassionate team here.  We are very grateful for all they have done for our family this year!

As of this morning, Caroline has successfully completed Round 3 of Immunotherapy. She is still dealing with the nasty cough/congestion viral sickness that is going around, and as a result, her oxygen levels are not where they need to be for a safe hospital discharge today. Her right lung has a little fluid so they will continue to monitor that overnight and if she still has trouble maintaining oxygen levels in room air, they will X-ray her chest again in the morning and re-evaluate.

Wishing all of our family and friends a blessed and Happy New Year - please be safe!

Caroline will still be able to celebrate NYE with her 2019 glasses and party blowers when she wakes up from her late nap!

The Lantz Family


  1. Happy New Year to all of you. We will continue to pray to our Heavenly Father for His healing touch in this new year for sweet Caroline.
