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.

Disney Here We Come!!!

What a BIG day. Fist off since we were going just for counts I conveniently forgot to put the Emla Cream (numbing cream) on Mimi. When we got to the clinic she was asked if she would like to do a finger prick, flat out NO. She would rather the large needle in her chest... She thought about it remembered when Auntie Stacey showed her how she does finger pricks (to check her blood sugar) and right when the Emla cream was coming Mimi decided "Let's do the finger prick!" She cried for about 10 seconds more because of the popping noise I think than anything and told me later it didn't really hurt.

We went in the playroom for some play dough fun, massage and the best news! Mimi's counts were awesome which makes me feel so much better about going to Disney, a wish Mimi made back in November. We are all SO excited to go! We will be leaving this Sunday until ext Saturday. I am sure we will have about a million pictures from both cameras to share!
