Caroline's Infusion Day by Kelly Brennan

Sweet Caroline has to get infusions to stay healthy. At first, getting her infusions seemed really scary, but Caroline teaches us that maybe they're not so bad!

Caroline takes you through the process of her treatment day, from the moment she wakes up until the moment she goes to bed. Witness her feelings as the IV is inserted, and see what her nurse uses to help take the pain away.

When it's time for her vitals, you'll learn the 3 things that are monitored to make sure Caroline is feeling okay. As her day goes on, you'll see Caroline do fun, simple activities you can try to incorporate on your treatment day, too!

About The Author
When Kelly’s daughter was diagnosed with juvenile dermatomyositis, a rare auto-immune disease, she looked for resources to help her child understand what an infusion day would be like….but she couldn’t find anything. That’s when she decided to create it herself and asked her talented young niece, Elleigh, to illustrate it. Because rare diseases impact the entire family, Kelly’s hope is this book will help prepare children and their siblings for the changes ahead.

Caroline continues to receive IVIG treatments regularly, and thankfully she has been responding well to treatment. Her big sister, Lily, continues to be the most compassionate sibling a chronically ill child could ask for.

A former television news reporter, Kelly spent years story-telling, but this one is her favorite story she’s ever told. Kelly lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with her husband Kevin, and two sweet girls.
