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.

Late night.

I let the girls stay up a little later today so Mimi could eat right before bed. She is scheduled for a Lumbar Puncture (Spinal Tap) tomorrow so no eating or drinking after midnight. And I have noticed she does better if she eats late and goes to bed. The procedure tomorrow is count dependent so we are hoping that her counts have gone UP.

This past week I was worried about her appetite she was not eating much of anything and taking forever to eat a small meal. Well all that worry and she started eating two days ago and today ate enough to make up for the week she was not eating. Appetite IS back!

We had a non eventful home-cation. I got to work a bit, it is good to be at the hospital NOT as a patient. I took Iza and Magi out and about for play dates and story times, while Mimi stayed home and got Daddy all to herself.

  1. I'm glad she's eating for you, it's hard on you to worry about her so much! I've got everything crossed for nice high counts so you don't have to worry as much!
