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.

Friday is Clinic Day.

And today was a good day! Plus a bonus : We were driving by a tag sale and bought a M&D Puppet show theather with puppets for $5! All three girls were super psyched.

Today was a first day that Mimi did not have to be fasting before clinic, so she was quite happy to get there with an egg & cheese croissant and hash browns from Dunkin Dounuts (Yes if you are wondering she at it all.) Since it was kind of a rushed morning we forgot to put the magic cream on, we both realized it when we walked into clinic. No worries though the awesome nurses were able to put some on before Mimi's port (central line) got accessed, she amazes me as she just watches and does not even flinch as a huge needle goes into her port. Today she just got Vincristine (chemo) through her port which took all of 5 minutes she colored a picture we got the CBC (complete blood count) back and we were on our way home!

Her blood counts were pretty good today (well... for her anyway)
Hgb 12.4
Hct 35.0
Platelets 127
Abs. Neut 1.5 (1500)
