Here is what we know the coming weeks will look like:
Cycle 1 will be about 1 week in the hospital, followed by 2 weeks at home to recover. While at home, Caroline will get daily shots to help boost her immune system and recover from the treatment; we hope she will be able to go to school some of the time between cycles. Cycle 2 should start at the end of her 2 weeks at home. After 2 full cycles (about 6 weeks from start), Vanderbilt will re-image Caroline to determine if there is any improvement at the disease sites. If the treatment is working, additional chemotherapy cycles will continue...if not, her team will re-assess.
HUGE shoutout to our healthcare friends and family, near and far, who went WAY above and beyond for us in so many ways this past week - y’all know who you are and we truly could not be more grateful to you!
We will continue to post all updates on this blog, and appreciate the love and support as we walk through this extremely difficult and scary time. Again.
Thank you for the prayers,
