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.

I should have knocked on wood last week when I said steroids are not too bad for Mimi. For the most part she has been okay or maybe I just got better at knowing what might make Mimi explode. This weekend she wasn't really herself... Friday she took a three hour nap after some screaming over little things, Magi was touching her. Saturday was okay while at Six Flags other than being upset she is two inches too short to go on the bigger rides. Sunday we were home all day so she was able to chill but did not want to go Trick-or-Treating with her sisters, instead she wanted to give candy out. This morning she woke up and was so sad, she just laid in our bed. She cried when I told her it's time to go to school. We let her stay figuring she might go in late but she chose to stay home all day. She always wants to go to school so I know she wasn't being herself hopefully she will have a good day tomorrow. She is good at telling us how she feels and explaining her pain but for some reason she was having a hard time telling us what was wrong. She would just break out in tears. It is hard to figure out weather this is a regular 5 year old thing or is it a 5 year old on chemo thing...

  1. That sounds like it may be part chemo, but a big part of being 5. We have been dealing with the same EXACT thing with Kristi. Just a few days ago, she was at school and was so sad her teacher actually sent her to talk to her nurse and then Principle to see what was wrong. They couldn't get it out of her, neither could I, but I did pick her up from school just a little early. I don't know how to get them to talk, but I know Kristi loves school and usually does tell me exactly what's wrong, but whenever this happens she won't. Almost seems like those days that we may have whenever we don't know why, but we just feel out of it or just like crying for no reason. I hope that she gets to feeling better and back to herself! Poor kiddo!
