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.

Mimi DOESN'T have Malaria.

In case anyone was wondering...

Hoping I am not jinxing myself here but fevers have not come back since Wednesday night. I even replaced the batteries in the thermometer to make sure it is working and that the 98.0 reading was correct.

Results from Wednesday's echo cardiogram came back normal. Her heart looks great.

Thursday was another busy day. We started of the day in the Nuclear Radiology department where Mimi received a nuclear injection and about three hours later we were to come back for a nuclear bone density scan. I had all the girls with me, which made Mimi happy to have her sisters with her. They were full of questions to the technician who was really good at answering them all. The scan itself took about 20 minutes, Mimi had to be very still. She did an awesome Job! We looked at the images after and thought it would have been great to get a print out of Mimi's skeleton for Halloween but unfortunately they don't do that. During the three hour wait we went for an appointment with the Infectious Diseases doctor (which really sounds worse than it is) she went over the last two weeks with me, and told me about all the tests that were done on Mimi all of which came back negative. She decided to test for some more one of them was Malaria, highly unlikely but at this point why not just check for everything. I just hope they are GONE. Her counts took a slight dip, probably due to chemo. Her CRP (C-Reactive Protein) is 4 down from 5, so it is going in the right direction.

We might not ever know what caused these high fevers for so long. Hopefully all the WORSE case scenarios were ruled out and this does NOT happen again.
