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.

Waiting for Discharge Papers.


So the bacteria is believed to be a contaminate. The second blood cultures that were taken (on Wed.) have not grown any bacteria which is reassuring. She will have a blood culture done at some point next week just to triple check but that will be done at the clinic. No extra meds for home and continuing with nightly chemo pill. Oh and we are also watching for any chicken pox spots in the next couple of days since Mimi might have been exposed on Monday while she was in the playroom, although she was wearing a mask, has had the vax, and was only there for a couple of minutes.

Mimi looks great, her ears look alot better. So I am waiting to sign my name on dotted line and take my Mimers home to see her fellow monkey sisters!

Request for tonight: Ravioli and Movie Night.


  1. Fantastic news! I'm glad to hear it all. Have a super fun ravioli and movie night, and we'll plan a sleepover do over soon :)

  2. This is great news! Have a great weekend!

  3. I hope you made it home! Amazing that 'contamination' earns you an extra few days in the hospital. Ugh. Hope you enjoy the weekend!
