Abby Update Spider Snake Cats & Bears

From Michelle

Abby is doing pretty well. She had some tough chemo last week and today. She is going to school, has had a couple of fevers but overall, is doing pretty good.

Look at all that hair. Isn't it marvelous?
Abby is growing up fast. Hard to believe she has been
suffering through cancer for almost 2.5 years.
It's weird to think she was THREE when diagnosed.
A year ago she had NO eyelashes... now she's got
the "every woman's dream" eyelashes.

I Want a Pet

Abby has been on a kick lately about wanting a pet. When she didn't get a kitty or puppy (after only two days of asking) she decided she would befriend anything that moves. She followed a spider around the living room giving it a name and asking it over for a slumber party. She has several beetles and lady bugs in her entourage now.

Today she adopted a dead snake in the flower bed. Her and SpideyLandis have been praying that God will "undead" the snake (haven't reminded Landis that snakes eat spiders). Seriously, they are praying for it. Abby and Landis wanted to lay hands on the snake but we told them intercessory prayer would have to do. If it was a little bigger we might have to anoint it with oil and fry it up. Here they are doing their best "Lazarus come forth":

Dead snake...

Rise and come forth!
Abby prayed for it to be "undead".

For You Halloween Moms

Abby would befriend a bear too but the one we have isn't alive. It's this adorable 0-6 baby costume on our Ebay store. We know it's hard to find good, wholesome, cute costumes these days. Since alot of our readers, Christian or not, would love this, we thought we would tell you about. The auction ends about 8pm Friday night. It is brand new, very nice quality still with the tags and would probably be $40 or more new. It's currently on a 99 CENT auction here:

Abby and Landis are both gorgeous! She is looking great! But I'm glad God hasn't answered the undead prayer.

Glad to hear an update on Abby. Her hair is amazing! What small and simple things you must appreciate so much more since this ordeal began. She is beautiful!

we had to make a rule that bugs had to be frozen because we were finding them in dresser drawers and socks. so now she finds them and we freeze them. THESE GIRLS CRACK ME UP. we do have a cat dog and as of last week we have 2 gerbils

Abby looks sooooo good!!! I love the undeading the snake. Nico just likes to find them. Lucky for us he knows better than to ask to keep them. Our clan consists of cats, chickens, and now a rabbit.

Wow! I can't believe how much Abby has grown...she is so beautiful and that hair! I haven't been able to get on your blog in a long time and am so glad I could check today. I will be praying for Abby and your whole precious family.
God Bless!

That is precious in a weird kind of way. Come on, Dad...get the kids a LIVE snake!! So happy to see Abby with gorgeous hair and eyelashes. It gives me hope that someday Sarah will have some too. ; )
