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.

Mimi had to miss most of school today since we had an appointment about her foot first thing in the morning and a clinic appointment right after. She went back for lunch and joined her class in the lunch room.

First her foot seems to be working the way it is suppose to, all the bones and muscles are fine. The only thing I found out is that the top of her feet is high (almost like the bone on top is slightly higher than normal) which explains almost 5 years of her hating sneakers! They were just uncomfortable on her feet, the doctor just suggested not to tie them tight on top. As far as the occasional pain and weird walking with the right toes pointed in we will keep watching it and hope it goes away, since he did not see it as a problem at the moment.

Next was clinic for counts. Super fast! And great counts too which makes me feel a little less freaked out about school. Since the counts were good chemo is on 75% dosage instead of 50%, we are working our way back to 100% hoping for no count crashes.

WBC - 3.4
Hgb - 12.4
Platelets - 244
Neutrophil - 1600!

GOLD STAR goes to Miss Magi who went to all the appointments with us today and was a superstar!
