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.

Inatient Day 4

We just got word that there will be day #5 also. Mimi's counts dropped from yesterday, which could be partly to the fact she got a double dose of Thioguanine (pill). Since her platelets dropped to 18 from 26 yesterday she will be getting a transfusion this afternoon. Her liver enzymes were also elevated, which does happen with Thioguanine, but she will be monitored today.

She is doing okay being stuck here, keeping busy crafting, playing games and watching way too much TV. Iza on the other hand is really missing her sister she was so sad this morning, I went to the "stash" of toys to cheer her up a bit.

Hospital School.
Mimi has been doing really well sounding out and writing words she decided to practice below, soon she will be writing her own posts!
