Update: Fun week at Home!

Caroline spent some much-needed time at home in Franklin this week, and got to do MANY of the fun things she missed while away in Cincinnati.  She had a playdate and baking session with Miss Stacey and Shelby the dog; a cookout and sleepover at her favorite TN mountaintop; a Preds game (and win!) with the family; homebound kindergarten classes with Miss Elise; watched her brother play an EWA Cubs game; visits with friends Mr. Scott and Mr. Chris; and last but certainly not least...learned to ride her bike with no training wheels after only 4 attempts!!!  She is rocking and rolling right now - feeling well with plenty of energy.

Her counts at clinic this week were just "ok," so Caroline will need Neupogen shots for the next 3 days, and we will head back to clinic on Monday to check again and continue monitoring them closely.  Unfortunately, with cold and flu season almost here, it will (again) soon be time to start limiting Caroline's exposure to enclosed spaces and large groups of people, so we plan on continuing the outdoor fun this weekend.  Tonight we're heading to have firepit s'mores with friends that live on our alley, another EWA Cubs game Saturday afternoon, a fun neighborhood party tomorrow night, and then a Ravens vs. Titans game to cap it off on Sunday.  We are trying to LIVE and enjoy every day right now!

One of our amazingly talented friends, Anneliese, designed a "superhero" logo for Caroline (featured on the blog), and she put them on new t-shirts to support Caroline.  They are the first batch to feature that theme, they come in multiple color and style options, and include a front and back logo design.  You can check them out by clicking here.

Thank you for all the love and support!  We hope you're able to enjoy and live your days to the fullest this weekend!

 Go Caroline!!!


  1. What great pictures and special family time. So glad for such good reports. My girls were the same age when they learned to ride a bike. I know how special those milestones are as I missed a lot of first with them(they were 2 and 4 when we became a family)but I treasure all the memories we get to make together as I know you guys do as well. So way to go Caroline on your first bike ride have fun. We continue to keep you all in our prayers each day. God bless you, the Whisner family.

  2. I am praying for you today,Caroline. You are such a little blessing. God has truly taken care of you. :)

    1. I also love seeing all the pictures of you in all with all the endeavors youve pursued this past year.

  3. Way to go Caroline on riding a two wheeler! That's awesome! I didn't learn till age 8, so you beat me by three years! Keep up the great work! 🚴‍♀️
