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.

Important phone calls.

First phone call. Preliminary Bone Marrow results from Tuesday showed NO leukemia!!! It feels like GIANT load of bricks has been lifted.

Pretty much most of Wednesday Mimi's temp was between 100 and 101, ANC is near zero, meaning nothing to fight infection with. I made the call and we were admitted. It is not safe for her to be at home since things can go bad fast and it is still unknown what is causing these fevers. In the hospital she is able to receive stronger IV antibiotics. We got admitted right before 7pm. With the plan to start investigating first thing in the morning. CT scans were ordered for her sinuses, chest and abdomen. The CT scan was to be done with contrast dye, but to get a better picture the dye needed to be injected in her vein rather than her port. So she had to get an IV in her arm, she didn't like it but was a pro! She also drank a "poison" tasting drink before the scan and received another Neuprogen shot. She kind of went through a lot today. We have not gotten any results back yet. But I do know some of her counts have started to come up.

If we were NOT at the hospital tonight we WOULD have been singing our hearts out at the Selena Gomez concert in Boston with Auntie Meg and Eryn. But that was not the case. Some of the awesome doctors, nurses, and child life heard she was going to miss the concert and made some magic happen... Before lunchtime the phone rang, it was a call for Mimi. She was confused at first then just speechless when she realized Selena Gomez was on the other line. It was so awesome of her to call it made her smile. they chatted for a couple minutes and she was so excited to call her sisters to tell them all about it. Iza immediately asked if Justin Bieber was with her also. We were already big fans of Selena but now we HEART her even more! We will be sure to go to one of her concerts next time she is around and I am sure Auntie Meg and Eryn will join us!
