We are relieved to report that the results are all positive. She had 4 main areas of concern on the original scans in early April. After 2 cycles of treatment, 3 of the spots are now essentially gone, and the 4th tumor shrunk by about 60%. Additionally, her bone marrow biopsy detected no active Neuroblastoma cells. Caroline will continue the same protocol for up to 15 more cycles: 2 types of chemo and antibody while inpatient for a week, followed by 2 weeks at home to recover/clinic check-in appointments...2 down, 15 to go! It's still a very long road ahead, but we are celebrating the small wins and will continue to fight alongside her.
Assuming Caroline's "counts" (ANC #) meets the minimum requirement to receive treatment, she will be admitted on Monday (6/6) for her 3rd round of treatment; if her counts aren't high enough, she will wait a week and be admitted on the following Monday/when counts recover. We will post an update on the blog.
We are thankful for all the meals, prayers and support from friends, family and friends of friends...and a HUGE shoutout to the medical team at Vanderbilt for helping us work through this once again.
