Good news, friends. I had infusion #6 this morning, which means I'm halfway through chemo! I'm feeling well and life has settled into a new normal of sorts. I'm so grateful for all your support, and for these powerful treatments! @CarolCHinz Carol Hinz Videos and pictures

Along with celebrating #IndependentBookstoreDay yesterday, I got vaccine number 2 and am feeling good. Obviously I had to wear the vaccine themed mask my sister got me!

Amazingly, my doctor said it was fine for me to get vaccinated in the midst of chemo! @CarolCHinz Carol Hinz Videos and pictures

Proud mama moment: My 10yo had to do a research project and essay about a notable Black figure. The teacher had a list of ideas but said kids could also pick someone else. So my kid chose...Ernest Everett Just, who 
he knows from @melinawriter's THE VAST WONDER OF THE WORLD. 1/2 @CarolCHinz Carol Hinz Videos and pictures

I havenโ€™t had as much energy the past couple of days (my 2nd infusion was on Wednesday), but today I felt up to making waffles for breakfast! @CarolCHinz Carol Hinz Videos and pictures

I asked @saraclevine if she'd be interested in writing a book about germs because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But the book turned out to be so much more.

Everyone at @lernerbooks has been so supportive, as have family, friends, and neighbors. My sister is an internist at a clinic and keeps wanting to buy me things, such as these adorable masks, but the best thing she does is to read my lab reports and explain them! @CarolCHinz Carol Hinz Videos and pictures

The diagnosis process was stressful and involved SO MUCH WAITING, but I was able to keep doing all my usual activities, so that was a big help. My boys are always happy to keep me very busy! @CarolCHinz Carol Hinz Videos and pictures
