Progress Scans Results

Caroline had progress scans on Monday (4/17); the scan results:  

CT scan: No new findings to suggest recurrent or metastatic disease.

PET Scan: No definitive evidence of malignancy.

We are obviously thrilled that Caroline is continuing to beat this disease (again), and it's giving us some renewed energy and hope as we continue onward with this long and exhausting treatment plan.

Assuming nothing unexpected happens and her counts are ok, Caroline's next admission is scheduled for May 1st...Cycle 15 (of 17) of chemotherapy and antibody. 

As always, thank you so much to our Vanderbilt medical team, family, friends, and the entire community of prayer warriors - we're beyond grateful for the continued love and support!

Relapse-iversary / Cycle 14 Complete

After a mostly "uneventful" Cycle 14, Caroline was discharged this morning and is home resting.

Today also marks the one year anniversary of Caroline's relapse, so we thought we'd share a review of the last 365 days in numbers...

196 - chemo/antibody infusions
91 - nights inpatient at Vanderbilt
18 - X-Rays
8 - CT Scans
6 - PET Scans

...along with countless doses of medication and needle pokes to access her port, place peripheral IVs, and  shots to boost her immune system...

Caroline is scheduled for her next round of scans the week of April 17th, and admission for Cycle 15 on 5/1.  Thank you for your continued prayers and support; the love from this community has helped carry us this past year.

Much love,
The Lantz Family

Peace out Cycle 14!

Cycle 14 / Life Lately

Caroline was admitted yesterday for Cycle 14 (of 17) to treat her relapsed Neuroblastoma. She's struggling with the "usual" side effects...mostly nausea and vomiting, but we're praying for an otherwise uneventful stay.

Thank you for your continued support,
The Lantz Family

In other news, Caroline felt ok between cycles...lots of spring break fun!
