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.

Clinic Day.

All went well today. Mimi was not too happy about not getting to eat breakfast but got over it pretty quickly once we got to the clinic and she saw her favorite "peeps" ;).

She was nervous about getting the "sleepy medicine", I (lied) told her it is a different one, which seemed to work because she did not get too worked up about it and fell asleep peacefully. The clinic's mini laptop that she got to play online with before her procedure might have also helped. Last couple of times when I watched her gag before she was asleep, it was awful to watch. She got Vincristine and Methotrexate (intrathecal administration, Spinal Tap).

She is a little nauseous and tired so it might be a "snuggle and read a book in the big bed" kind of a day.
