Unexpected Admission for RSV / Scan Results Update

Caroline was discharged today, after almost a week of being inpatient for a rough case of RSV. She had fevers as high as 105 degrees, and low oxygen levels for almost 5 days (requiring oxygen assistance). We are so glad she's turned the corner, is no longer contagious and is now recovering at home, showing us all her typical Caroline energy and attitude!  

The past couple months have been a roller coaster, to say the least...delayed chemo treatments, multiple ER visits, unexpected inpatient admissions for Sapovirus and RSV, as well as delayed progress scans.

Here are the results of her bone marrow and scans from the last week:
  • Bone Marrow Biopsy - No Evidence of Neuroblastoma Cells
  • CT Scan - Inconclusive because of the RSV thickness in her chest
  • PET Scan - Inconclusive because of the RSV thickness in her chest
We will now need to re-do her CT and PET scans in about 6 weeks, when all that congestion is cleared from her body.

Caroline is scheduled to be admitted Monday (12/12) for cycle 10 of chemo and immunotherapy.

We are all beyond exhausted, but so thankful for your prayers and support!

The Lantz Family
