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.

Back to our beds tonight. Not that I minded snuggling with Mimster on the hospital bed but getting uninterrupted sleep tonight is much needed.

Oh and we did make the Italian Wedding Soup. Sooooo Good! I am going to post the recipe for the soup because it was so YUM! We also made brownies with walnuts but those just came out of a Ghiredelli box.

Magi is doing MUCH better she just needed her mama and some antibiotics.


  1. That was awesome Italian Wedding Soup! I Recommend the recipe!! I can't wait to make it soon! It was great seeing you guys! I'll be back soon:)

  2. Can't believe I missed the soup but the brownies were amazing!!! Can't wait to see all you guys again (when Toto isn't sick :))

  3. Hi, it's Karen Shannon again. I am not sure if your doctor gave you any suggestions on ways to prevent the mouth sores. I bought a supplement called L-Glutamine Powder. I would give it to Nick 3-4 days before treatment and it really worked. He never/rarely had the sores. I learned this through a couple of parents at Hasbro Hospital. Glad to hear you are all home. Take Care

  4. Hi Karen,
    I will mention that to our onc. tomorrow. They treated them with a wash for trush(not the magic mouthwash)she would put it on with a sponge and it worked wonders because they are pretty much gone.
    Thank you!

  5. SO exciting! And I can't wait to make that soup!
