Guillain-Barré (Ghee-yan Bah-ray) Syndrome is an inflammatory disorder of the peripheral nerves outside the brain and spinal cord.
Currently, she is holed up in Vanderbilt hospital, where she'll be for the next little while. She's got her parents with her, a rotating crew of visitors and an endless supply of Sprite. She does have some health insurance (Thanks, Obama!), but has been out of work and will be out of work for an undetermined amount of time. She is also unsure of how much her insurance will cover.
SOOOO, we're going to do the only thing we know how to do and put a bunch of her favorite bands together and raise some money to help offset the costs and living expenses while she can't work. Facebook event here!
From Caroline's Facebook Page: Just a little update: After almost 2 weeks of battling health issues , this morning I was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
This is my second bout with GBS, which is apparently very rare, but I'm super optimistic about my treatment and recovery here at Vandy. I'm in little to no pain currently, and I've already started treatments.
I've already had such an incredible outpouring of love and support from my Cold Lunch and Vinyl Tap families, and the best friends I could ever hope to have. I love you all so so much!
I appreciate your patience with my text responses. If you have any Cold Lunch questions, feel free to email us. Love y'all!
