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.

Mimi was a bit bummed he could not attend the party, but she gave me her scrapbook to have people write in it. I brought it home and she insisted I read all the messages to her before bed she LOVED all the messages and especially the drawings.
Below are some pics that I was able to take and even pictures of me, which is very rare...

It was such a great time, bowling was fun although the whole turn taking thing went out the window, arcade games were a hit although the girls finally realized that you can't just pretend to play on those you really need money, and best of all they decorated cookies can we all say SUGAR RUSH!!!

The girls had a sleepover last night and woke up this morning to SNOW!
Something that I would rather not see in OCTOBER. But it is a cute pic ;)

Also because Iza has asked why there is only a picture of Mimi on this page I fixed it right after she made that comment. This cancer has not only changed Mimi's life but all of us and I think Iza is having a real tough time with it and is unable to express her feelings. She has been throwing tantrums over nothing and everything, part of it might be the age but I think seeing her best buddy, her double, her wombmate go through a drastic change is huge to her. I sometimes think Iza feels Mimi's pain, Mimi is too tired to deal with it and Iza cries for her. I am amazed at the twin bond more than ever.
I have put my self in her shoes a couple of times and I cry everytime I think what she is going through... One day she is spashing around in a pool with her sisters and friends the next day her sister is in a hospital for 10 days and when Mimi came home she was tired, sad, upset and was not her usual feisty self. Since August things have gotten "better" they do have their regular "Mommy she is LOOKING at me!" and "That is my side of the couch!" those times are back and I am good with that!

I don't have the exact numbers because I forgot the printout at the clinic but since her counts were good she will continue with the Mercaptopurine Pill daily for another week.
Mimi had a really good time there today for one Iza got to come with her, Daddy came to visit, both girls got a foot AND a back massage, they got to play with another little girl who was at clinic today and all the little girls got a Barbie from the child life specialist. They really go above and beyond to keep these kids happy, so much that they didn't really want to leave!

It's no lie that times has been difficult for us, Mimi's diagnosis has changed our lives but we know with this strong community of friends, family and neighbors around us we will be okay.
Thank you again from the way way bottom of our hearts.

I am hoping the weather holds up so far it has been raining all day...
Friday started a little rocky at the clinic, Mimi was super nauseous but handled it really well. It was awful to see her vomit while her "sleepy medicine" my stomach was turning the whole time she was in the procedure room for her Spinal Tap. Everything went well and we were home in record time. Her counts were really good and when she heard that she said "Can I have an apple, a banana and then cucumbers with ranch?" It was a yes.
Today (Saturday) she was having a pretty good day so we had a "Daddy Mommy Iza and Mimi Date" (Magi got to hang out with Babcia and Dziadziu) We went out for pizza and saw the Pasghetti Movie (I love it that they still say that wrong) in 3-D, it was worth seeing!
