Great News...so I think...

Hello everyone! I know it's been some time since I updated. As you can see in all the pictures...their's never a dull moment in the Miller room. The entire staff here is amazing.

Most of you knew that after this last chemo treatment that I had developed a blood clot in my upper right thigh. My docs weren't to concerned due to the clot prevention (IVC filter) procedure that Banner Estrella did before I got here. I also had to have a catheter put in my bladder because it is to painful for me to get up and down to go to the bathroom with my legs being so swollen. We had a little scare last night with some rectal bleeding, but the good news is it was old blood versus fresh blood and it hasn't happened again. They put me on a pain pump last night and my pain is so much better.

Thanks to all my family and friends for your love and support. Special thanks to all my friends who worked hard this past week to get my kids ready for school on Monday. The outfits are adorable and they have enough school supplies for the entire class.

I know that God is still continuing to work in my life and I am still going to beat this! Please continue the awesome prayers.

Much Love,
Kim

Oh my goodness - I am SO GLAD To see you online. I was so worried all day yesterday - I spoke with your mom on Friday and I have been terrified since then. I also left a message with Erin and your mom yesterday and didn't hear back - was petrified all day. You have just made my day - I was so worried about you. I am going to try to stop by today - will call your mom/Deron beforehand. Love you! Stay strong....
