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.

Clinic Day.

Mimi and Iza left school a little early today and we headed over to clinic to check counts. Two weeks ago the three of them were a bit "monkey" so I left Magi at home to enjoy some Daddy time. At clinic everything checked out just fine, Mimi has a cough, which matches Iza's, but her lungs sound clear and she is not complaining of anything. Since her ANC is 2000 her weekly Methotrexate dose was increased to 100%.

I have noticed Sundays and Mondays have been a bit tough on her. She takes her weekly chemo on Wednesday, plus Wednesday through Friday takes a bigger dose of her nightly chemo. It catches up with her but she is one tough cookie Monday nights she runs laps around the soccer field during practice. She truly is an inspiration!

We celebrated today with a spontaneous Wednesday movie trip to see Dolphin Tale, now the girls want a dolphin as a pet...

HGB - 11.5
