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.

Neutrophil Dance Worked!

A quick finger prick and counts were in and surprised all of us! The Onc On-call was surprised he did not get a call from us on Tuesday night after seeing her in the morning. Mimi was miserable all day Tuesday and most of Wednesday after the spinal tap. For the most part she has been doing really well while on steroids this summer, but that is not the case this week! She has been getting really upset and hiding in the closet crying. For some reason chose Magi to lash out on, she has been really mean to her an and poor Magi doesn't know what to think of it. Mimi does get in trouble for it just like anyone would but I just try being proactive about it and keep them both happy and away from each other. Hopefully just until Sunday!

Today was the Kindergarten Welcoming Party at school. Since Mimi's counts were way better than Tuesday we were able to go. I won't lie it was a bit emotional seeing Iza and Mimi at their desks with their names. They are so ready and so excited! Now they keep asking how many more days until the 7th.

WBC - 1.89
Hgb - 13.6
Platelets - 218
Neutrophil - 1000!


  1. I'm thrilled her counts went up, and I'm a bit emotional thinking about all our 5 year olds going to K. Seriously weren't we JUST at the library lap group and they were teeny?!

  2. Woo hoo!! So glad you had no hospital visit. Now to keep it that way once school starts.
