Angie Douthit continues to fight her cancer diagnosis, something she’s been open about on Instagram and on Teen Mom OG.

While filming the show, she explained to her daughter Mackenzie McKee that the doctors gave her 6 months to live, but she has already surpassed that date.

In her recent Instagram post, Angie reveals that she’s got bad blood again. Therefore, she’s not eligible for chemo. However, she did get 2 units of blood and explains that blood donation is important for her recovery. Angie also mentions the high school students in her area that have donated their blood to her.

Psalm 90:14 “Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” Well, once again, 🎼I’ve got bad blood🎶. Therefore, no chemo. What I did get was 2 units of blood. We just had a blood drive at our HS. You can donate blood and indicate it for somebody. I had several students show me their bandages where they gave blood for me. I’m so proud of them and grateful for their compassionate hearts. I knew I wasn’t feeling like myself. This didn’t surprise me. However, I’ve been so nauseated lately that I couldn’t eat until later. By 4:15 I was hungry. I called Brad before he came to the hospital and asked him to bring 3 of the very few things I can eat. I’m sure he felt silly walking into the hospital with Mac n cheese, pickled okra, green olives, and cherry tomatoes. Hey! Whatever works right? My dr wants to see me Thursday to recheck my blood. I’m okay with whatever God has planned for me. I know his ways are perfect. I know he wants the best for me. Therefore, I rejoice. How about u? Are you able to rejoice right now? Are things too crazy in your life? It’s okay if nothing in your world makes any sense. Honestly, the only thing in my world that makes sense is Jesus. Give your issues to him, he loves u like crazy! Share that love with others. Show them what it’s like to rejoice. #alwaysbekind #staystrongmightywarrior #itsonlycancer

But just because she has bad blood now doesn’t mean she can’t have chemo again. She points out that the doctor already wants to see her again on Thursday to recheck her blood at that time.

Angie has shared her cancer journey on Instagram, giving almost daily updates. She has a great outlook on life and appears to soak up every minute. As she points out in her Instagram post, she’s at peace with whatever happens to her and whatever God has planned for her.

Just yesterday, Angie revealed that it is difficult to trust that God will take care of everything, but she also points out that no one else can fix this cancer diagnosis.

Exodus 15:13 “In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.” – [ ] Yesterday was an interesting morning. At 6:45 a.m., when I’m supposed to be getting ready for work, I was throwing up. No idea why, I just threw up. I had already taken some of my my meds. Therefore, I didn’t get my pain meds. I was afraid to take it again, so I waited it out. I prayed for the nausea to go away so I could eat something. I had two GT classes to teach, so I pulled myself together and went to work. I’m so glad I did. We had a blast in both classes. I thought about going home and resting between classes, but something inside my heart, body, and mind told me to keep going. I prayed for strength and God almighty provided. I am supposed to have chemo tomorrow at 1:00. If my blood counts are ok, I will get chemo. If not, I go home. I had a friend ask me what I wanted to happen with the chemo.I said I wanted God’s Plan. He has a perfect will for my life, and I don’t ever want to stray away from that. God has a plan for u too. I know it’s difficult to completely trust God to take care of everything. But, no one else can fix it, only God. Please don’t let the craziness of this life get u down. Hold ur head up high and declare aloud, “I’m a child of God and he loves me. No weapon formed against me shall prosper!” Now rejoice and share your freedom with others. Be nice and kind. Let God lead you! #alwaysbekind #staystrongmightywarrior #itsonlycancer

These days, Angie is spending lots of time with her grandchildren. A little over a week ago, she posted a photo of her car, where Broncs and Javyn had used marker all over her white car.

She was smiling in the photo, revealing that they had both come clean about lying as to who had colored her car.

John 8:32 “and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Look at my car. Someone short apparently wrote all over my car with magic markers. I asked my favorite 3 yr old grandsons who, they thought wrote on Nannie’s car. Broncs said it was Jayvn. Jayvn said it was Broncs. I used a magic eraser to clean the car along with a trip to the car wash. It all came off. I guess the boys felt bad about lying and they finally came clean. They said they both did it! It’s a good thing they are cute!!! I thought about them telling a lie because they didn’t want to get in trouble. How many times do we think we can lie to God and we won’t get caught. Seriously, He knows everything. Remember when Cane killed his brother Able. God asked him where his brother was he stated, what has become a very repeated quote. He said, “Am I my brothers keeper?” But, God knew where Able was. You can’t lie to God. Telling the truth is always the best choice. And, just like I didn’t get angry at my grand boys because I love them so much, God loves us so much more. He forgives us if we aren’t honest because he loves us. He gently corrects us and teaches us a positive lesson. The truth shall set u free. Have a great Sunday! #alwaysbekind #staystrongmightywarrior #itsonlycancer

It’s amazing that she’s so positive and can focus on her grandchildren given she’s fighting for her life every single day.
