Unfortunately, Caroline didn't make counts again today. She was more than happy to get bumped - now she can celebrate Halloween, Book Character Day at school, and a field trip this Friday.
Although it's not entirely unusual for her to struggle with recovery in-between cycles (especially after so many), we are at a point where her treatment going forward will most likely need to be adjusted. After consulting with Caroline's team, one of her chemotherapies (Temodar) will be dose-reduced by 25%. This is probably the drug that is hitting her too hard.
We will go back to clinic again on Monday (11/7) for lab work, and she will either be admitted for Cycle 9 of treatment if her counts are high enough, or if they aren't high enough, she will undergo a bone marrow biopsy to see if there is anything else more alarming going on ~ stay tuned next week...
Thank you for your continued prayers and support!

Thank you for the bracelets to the #wilsonwarriors you are in our prayersReplyDelete
I was shocked to hear this news from the Wilson family. I will lift you all up in prayers for the foreseeable future. I followed her journey from day one and I was so excited for your family last year with the two year update I stopped checking back :(. Years ago, we helped with gift cards and meals. Is there anything you need?ReplyDelete
