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.

Unplanned Visit to the Clinic.

Mimi woke up this morning a bit off, she had back and chest pain, or in her words: "where my boobs are it hurts inside like a needle." No fever but her temp was in the high 99s. She desperately wanted to go to school so up the hill we all went. She was fine until 10:15 right around the same time I was on my way to work... I got a call from the school nurse that her temp was up and she was asking to go home. I picked her up and shortly after we went to clinic. No fever, lungs sound clear, and the mysterious chest pain gone. So we continued with our regularly scheduled afternoon.

Tonight the library was hosting a Stuffed Animal Fashion Show good thing I saw that on the fridge and we made it to the library just in time. Iza took Angelina, Mimi picked Sparkles, and Magi grabbed Tweety. Everyone went up and talked about their animal and did an obstacle course. All the stuffed animals won a trophy and their owners got to pick candy thankfully they were advised to save it for tomorrow!


  1. Boo to the unplanned visit... Hannah was very offended that Norah got to see Mimi yesterday, lol. The library sounds fun, sorry we missed it.

  2. I tried to post a comment yesterday... but it didn't go through. Anyhoo, so glad the fever is back down and all is well for now!!

    Stuffed animal fashion show sounds excellent!
