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

I picked the girls up from school and informed Mimi she has a clinic appointment right after. She replied with a loud "Why?! I am done my port is out!" I told her we are just going for a finger prick to check her counts, again "Why?" To make sure your blood is doing what it is suppose to, we will got every month for a while. She seemed okay with that answer but then said "If it doesn't look okay then I have to get a port again? and the hospital?" Iza jumped into the conversation and said "We will just pray and wish your blood is always good!" Yes! Yes, We will!

Mimi has developed a rash sometimes hive looking the day after surgery which seemed to get worse over the weekend but after a visit to the pediatrician's office and a script for Hydroxyzine it seems to be under control. Her stitches look great, they are dis solvable do we don't have to go to get them removed. Everything checked out well so we are good until early January!
