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.

Day Three of Steroids.

Not bad. Maybe because we live with a two year old who is a professional at throwing wicked awesome fits. So when Mimi has a steroid induced moment it doesn't seem so bad or maybe I can't really hear it over the two year old. Mimi does have her moments but has done really well being able to control her emotions and being able to talk things over, I am so proud of her.

Another thing, during the 5 day steroid pulse Mimi usually can't sleep too well so at some point during the night ends up in our bed. Normally not big deal but she has been grinding her teeth while she sleeps, the sound of it hurts my teeth! Last night even Magi said "What's that noise??" (Oh yes she somehow made her way to our bed also.)

  1. Hi! Just got your message on my son's blog. Funny we named them similarly. When we got the diagnosis I just thought we are going to kick this thing's butt. I am not an experienced blogger, though, but I keep trying! Love your blog. Keep kicking butt and God bless you! :)
