Admission Delays

For the second week in a row, Caroline’s admission has been delayed because her lab work isn’t meeting the minimum blood count levels for her double chemotherapy and antibody treatment. She didn’t mind too much last week, but today she left feeling sad because getting bumped out another week means she may miss celebrating Halloween at home, if her counts are high enough to be admitted. We went through this back in 2018 — she got bumped a few weeks in a row for low counts. Most likely, her bone marrow cells are just too beat up from treatment, and struggling to recover. Other than that news today, Caroline has been feeling well and is her normal, energetic self.

It’s hard to continuously re-arrange weekly plans when this stuff happens, but we forge ahead knowing things can always be worse…

Thank You for the continued thoughts and prayers!
