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.

On Hold.

Well ANC did go up but just a tiny bit to 360. It needs to be over 750 for chemo and to start the last longest phase of treatment, called *Maintenance. Which is just around the corner for Mimi.

It is really nice out today so we will head out to burn some of this triple monkey energy off outside.

WBC - 1.71
Hgb - 9.9
Platelets - 197
Neutrophil - 360

*Maintenance therapy: If a patient stays in remission after induction and consolidation therapy, maintenance therapy begins. The goal is to destroy any disease cells that remain so that the leukemia is completely gone. It may last two to three years.
