Had my annual brain MRI today.  Once again, our prayers have been answered.  All clear!  We are so happy.  I was a little worried because I've been having headaches.  But, turned out it has nothing to do with cancer.  I hate how I relate every ache and pain to cancer.  But, that's the cancer world.  I think the big man upstairs has a greater plan for me.  I just hope I'm making Him proud.  My neurosurgeon is doing a paper on my case, trying to educate other physicians that giving someone a palliative care pamphlet and sending them on their way is not the way to handle stage 4 lung cancer with brain mets.   My case was the proof.   I just love him.

I drove up yesterday and am driving back tomorrow.  I had an interesting trip up.  I got pulled over, which isn't necessarily unusual.   But the reason - slow poke law.  Never have I been pulled over for going too slow.  I've had more speeding tickets than I can count.  I couldn't help but laugh and be a little proud of myself.  I also realized I probably need a driver because lately I get pulled over a lot.   Luckily the cop laughed at those statements too and just told me to stay in the right lane.  Funny thing is, I was speeding when I got pulled over.  I was going 80 in a 70 but slowed down to 75 when I saw the officer.  So technically I got pulled over for going to slow while speeding still.   I can't win with this driving thing!!!

Not much else going on except everyday life.  I haven't blogged in a while because we've been a little busy at home.  I will blog more later.  I'm super tired already.  And Happy 1st Birthday to my niece, Sarah Catherine!  Love you sweet girl!

And how could they cancel Chasing Life!  My favorite show because I could relate so well.  So many young people with cancer did.  Shame on you ABC Family!  Don't worry, I ranted on Twitter.  Won't do anything but made me feel a tiny bit better.  

Thank you for all of your continuous prayers and please keep Karley in your prayers.  She had a little extra trouble with this trip.  Also, please pray for Carmen, Brad, The Mitchell-Anderson family, The Lee family, and so many others that are and have fought this cancer battle.  There are so many, too many to name.  Thank you all again for taking the time to read this and I promise to right more soon. Lots of other stuff to blog about, just tired!   God bless!
