I need to change my Blog Title

So Its been FOREVER since I have made a post. I am thinking about changing the title to The Yearly Life of the Miller's because that's about how often I update. So the last post I made was CANCER! It was when I first found out I had it and now the post after that one is about.... ONE MORE WEEK UNTIL MY LAST CHEMO TREATMENT!!! May 25th will be my last Chemo treatment. WHOOP WHOOP!! It has flown by and gotten better and better every time. My first treatment was horrible. I threw up, I slept, I felt horrible, and it was just awful! My second one I felt like I was going to throw up, I slept, I felt horrible and it was bad. My third treatment I didn't feel like I was going to throw up, I felt ok and it was ok! By my fourth one i had it down pat, I felt good, slept some and it was all good. The fifth one I felt good, slept hardly none and it was basically like life before chemo! The worst part of all of it is taking Pretnizone for 5 days after my treatment! YUCK!!! Can you say NASTY!!! I HATE that stuff it makes everything taste nasty, I can't eat anything sweet because it taste like metal including sweet tea which is just a sin not to be able to drink sweet tea! :) So we are counting down the days to my last one!! As of Tomorrow i will have SEVEN days!! YES!!

By the way after my third chemo treatment I had a PET Scan(2nd one) and it showed NO signs of CANCER left! How amazing how fast GOD answers prayers and believe me he was getting lots of them. Between my family/friends and every church in the surrounding counties I believe he was getting an ear full!! :) I have met so many people on this journey and it seems like one out of two always tell me, hey I know you, you are on our prayer list at church and they will tell me there Church name and I have never heard of it!! AMAZING how the body of Christ comes together when someone needs them!!

Yep lucky me I have been diagnosed with Subcutanioius Large T-Cell Lymphoma. Not as much fun as winning the lottery I have to say! :) I have so far had a Sonogram (found 20+ swollen lymphnodes); CT Scan that confirmed those were there and no noticable cancer anywhere else(praise God); and a biopsy the day after the CT Scan to determine exactly what type it was(the long name in the beginning of the post). I go today to meet with my Oncologist (Dr. Q) and see about treatment and all the other good details! I will update after the appt.

How am I feeling? Glad you asked! My arm hurts from not using like I should have been after the biopsy and some scar tissue has attached itself to the muscle and now I have to work it off!! OUCH!! My feelings toward the cancer itself? I'm ok with it. My Dr. said I have "a good kind" and its treatable and I will be ok so I am ok with it. God has a purpose for everything so me having this, has a purpose. It just better be a good one! JK!! I really am ok with it, I have prayed about it and we are not all promised tomorrow anyway so you just have to look at the positives. It has brought me closer to HIM and it has made me realized the important things and life and not to take one second for granted. He is going to be there with me every step of way (footprints in the sand) I have a very supportive hubby and family and we are all gonna take it one day at a time and get through this! I am giving it to God and He will handle it!

Braxton's 2nd Birthday

The birthday has come and gone! Braxton had a BLAST!! The firetruck even came and made an appearance at his party. He wasn't to crazy about it at first but once Daddy got him on it he was all smiles after that. He is still talking about it every night. He says "I climb up, I sit on top, they go round and round (the lights that is) and Bye Bye (they left). The way he talks it sounds like the firetruck only stayed for a few min. but it was there for forever. The vol. fire dept. brought out the truck to the party for us. They were the sweetest two men and one of them even put on all his gear and took pictures with the kids. Bless his heart I know he was burning up but he kept insiting that he was fine. The other guy opened all the doors and compartments and explained to us all the equipment and what all it was used for and did. He even let the kids climb on top of the truck and they thought that was the coolest. Well some of them did, some of them didnt want any part of it. The city fire dept. gave us fire man hats, fire safety suckers and coloring books! THEY WERE AWESOME! He got so much stuff and money and he had a blast. I think I was just as tired as he was after the party but it was all worth it!
