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.

It was a quiet day at the clinic, I think most of the world was shopping or sleeping in after big dinners the night before. Magi and Iza slept over my parents house so this morning after Daddy went to work Mimi and I slept in until 8:40, clinic was at 9. She was not happy about getting the sleepy medicine today so I figured the longer she sleeps the less we need to think about it. She woke up and asked for breakfast and quickly realized she can't have any. I quickly made her think of something else, I told her she can bring the camera to clinic and we can make a book about procedure day. She was very excited, I will be sure to post it when our book is done.

Counts were on the lower side, so 6MP (Mercaptopurine) dose is reduced to 50%, Bactrim (antibiotic) on hold and going back for counts on Wednesday. This past Tuesday during gym Mimi told me she was running around and her chest hurt, once she rested it was better. Since this is the second time this has happened on Wednesday she is scheduled for an echocardiogram and a EKG (electrocardiogram.)

Everything went well with the procedure (Intrathecal chemotherapy) the two anesthesiologists were really good with Mimi they took time to talk to her and showed her what all the machines in the procedure room do. Today she chose to watch as the white sleepy medicine (Propofol) was injected into the IV but got upset that it was gross. Sleepy head woke up when I told her it is time for lunch, her choice Subway!

Today's Counts:
WBC - 1.65
Hgb - 12.4
Platelets - 193
Neutrophil - 550


  1. I'm sorry crossing it out on the calendar did not mean she didn't have to go on Friday. Hope her counts rebound quick :)

  2. Hope those counts come back up quick. Lame to have to go in the day after Thanksgiving.

    I look forward to the procedure book!!

    Happy Holidays!
