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.

Monday Update.

We are still waiting for blood cultures to be back (they take 48 hours) so far everything looks good. Mimi does have a cough and a bit of a stuffy nose. She has not had a fever since she was admitted last night so that is good also. She is acting fine and also ate okay this morning.

Her only complaint is her itchy port, she has been getting a rash from the tape (tegadrem) they use to hold her port in place. One of the nurses last night changed her dressing and used a barrier between her tape and her skin and it seems to be better although her skin is irritated from yesterday.

As far as I know we will probably be staying another night unless the Docs decide otherwise.

I am home with Monkey Magi and Monkey Iza while Daddy and Mimi watch a movie at the hospital. I will head back over there in a bit.

Update 7:30PM
All is looking well, Mimi's cough is better, her counts look good... She does have to stay the night since they are keeping her 48 hours to "grow" the blood cultures. She is happy we got to do some fun crafts, read some books, she found a student nurse who let her play hair dresser on her hair, she got to listen to a song made JUST for her from Songs of Love. I will try uploading it here for all to hear. So if all continues as it is, we will be home tomorrow.
