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.

One puke... Two puke... Three puke...

That was our night last night. Iza started the night not feeling well, Mimi advised her on what to do when she is feeling nauseous. Poor thing was running to and from the bathroom with a bowl. Shortly after midnight Magi woke up came out of her room and said she needs a new place to sleep since she has puke on her bed, and apologized for not knowing she was going to get sick. So far at 2 am I was hoping this will all magically skip Mimi. Not so much, 3 am she was right in the bathroom with her sister by her side accompanied by a fever... I made the phone call to the PA on-call. I was VERY thankful for not having to go into the hospital in the middle of the night, while two other kiddos are sick at home and needed me.

So no one has really slept last night, everyone is camping out on the living room floor in of the TV. Mimi and I will head over to clinic in a minute so she can get her counts checked, blood culture done and receive some antibiotics.

Update: Back from Clinic. Mimi got an antibiotic (Ceftriaxone) Her counts came back really good so we got to go home and relax. She still had a slight fever while at the clinic but since everyone has it here we know the cause of the fever. It is an over cast day so we will all just relax at home and re-cooperate after not sleeping all night.
