Mimi got her port accessed, blood drawn, and monthly Vincristine administered. She got examined my a med student and Dr. L, other than this lingering junky cough and random knee pain (I think six year old random) she looks and sounds good.
Then we waited to be called down for the procedure, lumbar puncture with inrathecal chemotherapy. We waited quite a while before another little kiddo went before Mimi, she got a bit nervous (so did I.) No matter how many times you do this it is always scary when you think about it, your child laying asleep while a giant needle goes into their spine... She did go in around noon, poor thing was starving, everything went fine. She was awake ready to come home, yes with a stop for a dounut. Although she is so wiped out that she wants to cuddle and is sitting on the couch with her sisters looking at her long awaited treat... We will just chill out at home and take it easy today.

Please keep our friend's daughter in your prayers as she starts her battle with leukemia with a huge army behind her! Mimi made sure she had something purple with her today :)
