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.

Inpatient Day #2

Quick update. Mimi said I have only 5 minutes ;) to be back in the room.

Her fever came back yesterday late afternoon. The sinus x-ray showed there is a possible sinusitis. The leg pain has also come back yesterday and during the night not as bad as when we came in but enough that she asked for medicine. Hopefully today there will be a plan on how to figure out that pain, possible imaging.

We are coloring up the storm with scented markers and stuffing some envelopes Mimi wants to send out mail.

Iza and Magi are spending the day with their buddies Hannah and Norah and were all smiles when I dropped them off there this morning.

Okay so again quick update. Leg x-ray was fine, no fracture, nothing odd on it. There was a blood test done (a three letter one ERS maybe?) anyway that was okay as well. So right now she is on two different antibiotics and Tylenol as needed when she complains of leg pain. She also got another chest x-ray to make sure nothing started there since we checked last. She loves seeing the x-rays and people are prety nice around here to show them to her.

Iza and Magi are having a sleepover at Ela and Lily's which is keeping them entertained and Iza's mind off of Mimi being in the hospital, she was a little bummed that she can't see her but they have been calling each other through out the day it is quite funny to hear their little conversations.


  1. Hugs! We know what it's like to be "in". Hope they get to the bottom of it soon!!

  2. HUGS for all, Love you
