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.

Rough Night but Lucky Charm kind of a morning!

Mimi did not have a good day or night yesterday. Around 3pm she started complaining of a headache, her temp was in the 99s she fell asleep shortly after. Her temp kept creeping up while she slept despite the Tylenol. My parents were here while she slept I took Iza and Magi out since they needed "normal". They have been doing really good but yesterday Magi had enough I think she showed everyone that with a loud three year old kind of a tantrum on the way out of the hospital, she got a little better with some mommy time. I came back to the hospital around 9pm and Mimi's headache got really bad she looked miserable, I watched the thermometer as the nurse was checking it 102... 103... 104.1! This was after Tylenol and at that point Motrin was given too. Usually Motrin is not given since it may cause platelets to drop, but it was okayed as a one time last night. I was rubbing her forehead since that helped her headache and was putting wet wash cloths on her. Finally at 3am, twelve hours later, her fever went down It was nice to her a number less than 99.

This morning at 8am it was SO nice to see her smiling face asking for her Lucky Charms, a rare treat. Uncle Victor just came to drop the girls off and they are all chatting away. Love these monkeys!

Not sure of the plan today but soon we will find out... I will update when I know. I am pretty sure we will be here tonight since these fevers keep coming every afternoon. Thank you for all the love & prayers!

1pm. During a craft before lunch she spiked a fever of 103.2 with a headache and a blotchy rash on her neck. She got a dose of Tylenol with Codeine, once that kicked in she is feeling much better.

5pm Fever still here, headache came back, she vomited (probably due to Tylenol/Codeine) so the "big guns" came out Morphine along with Zofran and Tylenol. She is resting comfortably and said her head doesn't hurt as much.

  1. Man I can't believe she still feels so awful AND they don't have any answers for you! I hope it ends soon.
