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 3 of Steroids.

Not too bad as far as emotions go but food is very random. I have decided there is no real meal times during "steroid week" for anyone. Mimi just asks for random food at random times. Iza and Magi and all the other little munchkins that happen to be at my house also want random foods. So I go with it. Yesterday I cut up and/or served three apples, 2 cucumbers, everything bagel, a whole cantaloupe, 1/2 gallon of milk, pear, celery, eggs, raisins... I am sure there were other things that I can't recall but all this was between 9:30am and about noon!

On a side note I took Mimi to see our regular pedi to check her foot. She has been walking "funny" on it for over a year now sometimes more than other times but recently she has gotten blisters and tripped on over that foot also. I don't know if it is chemo related issue or just a kid thing but I wanted it looked at. We got a referral of a children's orthopedic so hopefully we will have some answers and/or solutions.


  1. All the other munchkins love random food all day every day :) And I hope the orthopedic appt goes well.

  2. A friend sent me the link to your Blog. Many many prayers for sweet Mimi as she KCB's.

    Love, hugs and prayers from a fellow survivor.
