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.

Clinic Day.

Long day at the clinic, but with some friends who are also waiting time went by fast. On procedure days the youngest kiddos go first, since Mimi was the oldest today she went last. She was a little anxious about getting anaesthesia but between making pictures and getting a "spa" massage along with her friend A she didn't have much time to think about it.

All went well during the lumbar puncture although she got upset right before she fell asleep, the anaesthesiologist thought he could just get the meds in her IV without her noticing but she got pretty mad. Not to self: Let her know it is coming...

It took Mimi forever to wake up, I always get so worried, finally I just sat her up and we talked about food and that got her eyes to open up. We got home right before 2pm and she slept until about 6pm. When she woke up she was mellow and complained of back pain and nausea. It is 9:30pm right now and she is just hanging out in my bed, I suspect she will be sleeping shortly.

Today's Counts:
WBC - 2.02
Hgb - 11.9
Platelets - 192
Neutrophil - 960

Today started Round 2 of Maintenance therapy (84 day cycles.) Same meds just increased doses, I am hoping for no count crashing or fevers, hope with me!

I just found this on my camera. A couple of days ago is was taken by a couple of cute five year olds :)
