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.

So four hours after the last post Mimi was in our bed talking in her sleep and grinding her teeth. Never a good sign. Her temp was 102, she was miserable with back and leg pain. We were admitted around 4:30am. Once we got her she got antibiotics and some fluids and we tried to get some sleep. She is fine now, in a good mood no fever just high heart rate. Her counts are great so it is probably a viral infection.

Cancer has a way of being a JERK...


  1. Cancer is a jerk. Cancer is worse than a jerk, but I won't say that here. I'm sorry Kat, it sucks to be stuck in the hospital again, though I guess at least it wasn't last week. I hope the fever stays gone and she's home quickly!

  2. So glad the inevitable fever happened AFTER the wish trip!! Looks like you had a great time- hope little Mimi stays fever free so you can get out of there soon!
