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.

Mimi has been having back and hip pain since Saturday, in her words "I can just sit in the stroller for the walk so we don't have to call the doctor." Sunday I know she was hurting because at night she was grinding her teeth and during the walk she sat in the stroller for the most part. But did not let any of the pain spoil her super awesome time! This morning she had tears in her eyes and asked if I could call the clinic. We got the okay for Tylenol and I also put warm towels on her back. The pain came back after lunchtime, after another call to the clinic we got some stronger pain meds but Mimi said she will wait until it hurts "a lot, a lot" to take them. She has a high tolerance for pain which I have yet to figure out if that is a good thing or not...
