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.

SUN is here! Clinic Day

It was so nice to be out in the hot sun today! I hope this weather is here to stay a while.

Mimi had a clinic visit today, Iza was very excited to accompany her sister. Everything checked out pretty good. I am pretty sure that she in fact is lactose intolerant, I am blaming it on chemo. Since she stopped having milk she has not once complained of feeling pukey or having any other GI issues. It is so nice to have a happy kiddo back!

Counts came back fine, neutrophil count was on the higher side so her MP6 (Mercaptopurine) nightly chemo pill dose was increased. It has been long since she has been on 100% of her chemo dose, I just hope her counts don't go crashing down. Think Positive!

WBC - 5.5
Hgb - 11.9
Platelets - 218
Neutrophil - 3700


  1. Chemo does have a lot of side effects on the body.This could be due to that...let her choose her foods and still make interesting options as she is going through so much.

  2. I'm so glad that you might have found one of the reasons or THE reason why Mimi keeps feeling sick. I hope that it is temporary but keeps to just milk so that you guys are able to avoid it and continue to enjoy your days!
