Progress Update

Caroline is feeling better today and has started to eat and drink a little bit!  The clogged line issue from the weekend has been resolved without any surgical procedures, and her oxygen levels and blood pressure are back to normal.  We hope that she can be discharged within the next few days.  When she is allowed to go home, she will leave with a daily IV antibiotic that we will administer at home, through her central line, that runs for 14 days to ensure the infection is completely gone.

We have confirmation that Cincinnati Children's Hospital has received her transfer records, and we expect to hear from them later this week to schedule her Proton therapy.

Thank you for you all the vigilant prayers, especially during this scary ICU/infection experience.  We are also beyond thankful for the generosity that we've received in Paypal donations for the upcoming travel expenses.

So much appreciation,
The Lantz Family

Trying some "real" food last night!

Art with Aunt Joanna is the best!  Grumpy Cat and "Grumpy Caroline!"
