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.

Fun Times.

It has been so busy I have been unable to update. Last weekend we has a jam packed schedule of fun. We started of Saturday with a very fun birthday party for an adorable set of sisters, Happy 7 & 3 A & A!!!. It was at a Clay crafty place, they girls enjoyed painting ceramic creatures, we will be going back for sure! Straight from there we drove on the sleepy Mass Pike and when the girls woke up we were at Auntie Tracy's where they spent the night while I got to have an amazing dinner with some great moms in Boston.

The next day we headed back into into Boston to the New England Aquarium, Three little girls and three big girls as Iza said, Tracy and Ela came with us. Mimi wanted to see eels so bad, she did get to see them although they were being a bit shy, no matter how much she told them to move. Magi was quite exited with the sea horses she was showing them to everyone that walked by. Iza wanted to see sharks but was happy with the giant fish and getting to play with the star fish. The girls did pretty awesome walking all over the place in and out of the T and buses. Although Magi did have one major head turning tantrum which was quite comical... She was screaming (very loudly) that she wanted ready for this... EAR WAX, yes she wanted EAR WAX. I was trying to reason with her at first but she was having none of it. Finally I told her she can have my ear wax if she stops screaming. Eventually we figured out that she wanted Ear Muffs all along. Guess what is going on her Santa list?

This week school has been going good. Mimi has been a bit nauseous lately and I think something else is bothering her because she seems easily irritable. Again this is one of those things that I wonder "Hey is it the chemo making you feel like crap? and you just need to scream" or "You are 5 and are good at this game" Some mornings I have been letting her "no-throw-up-pill" kick in and she goes to school a little later.

Friday night the school held a pajama movie night event. The kids came dressed in comfy PJ's laid out their blankets and ate popcorn while watching a winter movie. It made me so happy to see all the girls enjoy their friends. I got teary seeing them so happy.
