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.

ER Visit and Hospital Stay.

All was fine in our house with 4 bouncy girls, one extra for a very anticipated sleepover, until about 8pm when Mimi started to not feel well. She was complaining of a stomach ache, which followed with vomiting, headache... but no fever. Her Onc. had us bring her to the ER, where we got right in, we flew through triage into a closed room tucked away in the Pedi ER section. I was nervous since we have never gone through the ER with Mimi, I was not sure how the port access would go. The nurse was awesome though and no tears or issues from Mimi. After we got counts, which were good, and found out she had a double ear infection she was admitted to the floor for observation. She looked good this morning and we "thought" we might even go home until the vomiting started again, so we are staying the night.

She is quiet and tired right now, I know she does not feel well because there are crafts in front of her and she has not touched them.

I am mad, mad for her because she can't be at the marionette play today like we planned, I am mad for her sisters because they had to miss out on fun, and for their best buddy because her first sleepover was ruined... okay whining party over.

  1. You have every right to be mad, absolutely, without a doubt. However, I wouldn't say her first sleep over was ruined, and she's lucky enough to have a second sleepover party/movie night with one of her best buddies again tonight. I can't wait until Mimi feels better now so we can do fun stuff, and so she's good to come join the sleepover party here!
