Out of 3 daughters Mimi is our middle child, older sister Iza by 3 minutes and a younger sister Magi by 3 years. Mimi was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on August 12, 2009. After 2 years, 2 months and 26 days on November 6th, 2011 she took her last chemo pill and is considered OFF Treatment! This is our story of our journey through childhood cancer.

Breathing is good.

My heart did the pounding thing again as I took Iza to the pedi on Saturday morning, she had a strange "rash", normally I would not even call the pedi but now I question everything... The pedi called Mimi's Onc. since she did not want to send me home without knowing what this rash was.

We were sent to the hospital for a CBC.

This whole time I tried to just breathe. This was around 10 am. Right after noon I got a call from the pediatrician "Iza's blood is fine" I cried.

Since Mimi is off the steroids for a bit and her counts are pretty good we decided to spend the day in a park with some friends, saw some monkeys, bears, oh MY!, eat ice cream, jump in a bounce house, have a boat ride, eat some more ice cream and my little monkeys fell asleep while chattering with their Barbie night lights. Today felt normal...

  1. I'm so sorry you were so scared! I'm glad Iza is fine, and that you had a fabulously "normal" day!
