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.

What a day.

First counts are not awful but not great either. I guess the good thing is they have gone up since last week just not by much. She took her Methotrexate tonight (it is taken once a week unless counts are under 500) and se will also take her nightly chemo pill and I am hoping that her counts will continue going up. I am trying to think positive for her, she is really looking forward to all the fun starting on Friday, we all are.

Today's Counts:
WBC - 2.07
Hgb - 11.3
Platelets - 175
Neutrophil - 620

Iza has been "off" for the last couple of days. Just extra whiny and throwing some tantrums that I was really thinking we were done listening to. She has also been sleep walking and all of this is just NOT sitting well with me. To top it off she was in tears tonight saying her head hurt alot, five minutes later she was throwing up for an hour. Dan gave her a shower and put her to bed at 5:30. I hope she is all better tomorrow morning.

And of course Magi had to join the show today... She fell asleep at 5 on the couch I transferred her to her bed and so far she is still there.

Tonight for the first night since Mimi started Maintenance I am going to bed at 8pm setting my alarm for 10 to give Mimi her pill. I have a feeling I might have some early risers in the morning.

Oh and one more thing the tooth fairy is coming tonight for Mimi!


  1. I hope everyone slept well and wakes up happy and feeling well. Including you!

  2. Aw I am so sorry that Iza was sick. Is everyone well now?
