This is my new hated word. Actually the whole term is demodex folliculitis. It took us 2 months to finally discover what it was and we have been treating it for 2 months. It is found in individuals with compromised immune systems for long periods of time. ALL leukemia is one of its favorite targets. It is the normal mites that hang out on your skin attacking you. It's itchy and uncomfortable but she complains very little. The first picture is Abigail holding my little niece London. The second picture is psycho I know, but it shows her eye issues. For months she kept getting massive amounts of stys on her lower left and upper rt. eyes. Eventually we had them surgically removed but it has been challenging to keep them away.

Luckily the folliculitis is better. I don't know if and when we can get it to go away but it has never looked this bad since we started. So now that I am hoping to post more I just want to explain Abigails skin so it doesn't look like she has recently started puberty ;)


  1. Abigail's smile is just amazing! Keeping the prayers coming! Thanks for updating. I think of you so often.

  2. Is there anything that makes it better? Hoping it goes away soon. She is one tough cookie and soooooo cute!

  3. Oh - one more no fun thing to deal with :(
