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.

Kindergarten will start...

September 7th!

Today Iza and Mimi got to meet their soon to be Kindergarten teacher. Iza has met her before during open house, and has been telling Mimi all about her, today they both got to chat with her. They did some flash cards with numbers and letters, colors, shapes, wrote their names and of course colored. Mimi was funny when we were walking home she said the teacher only asked her to count to 20 but she could count to 400!

I am nervous and excited all at the same time for many reasons. We will take things one day at a time and for now just fully enjoy the summer before I have to see my big girls put on uniforms and go off to school!

Tomorrow is Clinic day, no food or drink after midnight, since it is procedure day (Spinal Tap). Thankfully we are going in for 9am so Mimi should not be too hungry in the morning. She has been a bit anxious about the "sleepy medicine" but I think everyone has done a great job this weekend to keep her mind occupied with other things.


  1. Yay on Kindergarten starting soon! I still can't believe our little ones are big enough to be in school yet. Kristi is starting this Fall as well! Good luck on the Clinic day (today), hope everything goes smoothly and is over as quick as it can be! Mimi is a trooper, so I am sure she will do well! You hang in there too, I hope that today is going by quickly for all of you!

  2. I'm glad they enjoyed yesterday! Fun dinner at Babcia's also. She was awesome today, and I hope she rested up so we can hang out again one day this week.
