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.

Bring a buddy.

We had to go to clinic today for blood counts to see if Mimi is good to go for tomorrow's Spinal Tab. Iza got to go to clinic today also, they were both VERY happy to be there and Mimi did super today since her buddy was with her.

Tomorrow we will get the road map for the next few months. Mimi will also be getting another spinal tap tomorrow. She is not too happy since Iza can't come with her and also because she is getting the "sleepy medicine" that tastes like the poison apple... (I am not sure when she had one of those or if she had a talk with Snow White) Even though she gets the meds through her port kids get a taste in their mouth right before they go under and she remembers it everytime. She will be waking up to a chocolate chip cookie from Jess :)
