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.

No Chemo Again.

I have been worried sick about today's clinic visit... We went in this morning, Mimi got her port accesed and 15 minutes later one of the nurses came to me with the results. NO GO one for more week. Again like last week all her other counts went up just not her Neutrophils (ANC) it is at 420 this week.

Mimi is also complaining of hip pain on one side as well as some "butt" pain. As soon the Oncologist heard that he ordered a bone marrow aspiration to be done on Tuesday to see what is going on instead of waiting until next Friday. They would have done it today but Mimi ate breakfast and due to anasthesia she has to be on an empty stomach. I am really hoping that her counts will just get better by Tuesday and she won't have to have the procedure at all...

She is feeling really good playing and being a crazy monkey with her sisters and buddies that came to see her today, you would never know she is fighting this battle...

So again PLEASE keep Mimi in your prayers.


  1. Oh Kat, sending prayers to you and your crew. Be strong.

  2. Just know that she will be ok! I am thinking of her.

  3. Praying for healing and wisdom for her doctors.

    No advice on your ALL-Kids question, but I will continue to pray.


  4. I will be praying for Mimi that her counts rebound quickly.
