Poison Ivy Update
Well Joe has gotten much better his blisters on his arms are pretty much gone. He's still itching but he doesn't have any swelling. Kaiden is also itching quite a bit but we keep Cortaid on which helps a lot. I have to give him Benadryl some during the day which causes drowsiness and sometime grumpiness! Me on the other hand, I think I'm doing the worst out of the 3 of us. I now have it on both boobs and all on my thighs. It starts out as just small spots and then it spreads until all the spot are linked and its just one big welt. I'm itching a lot during the night so I've been taking Benadryl but that sometimes leaves me real drowsy in the morning. I'm not much of a morning person as it is and being even more tired than usual has me a little cranky which causes my patience to run out very quickly. So my short temper and Kaiden's grumpiness has been a little difficult. Luckily my mom has been great and let me get naps when I really need them. My mom doesn't think mine is poison ivy since it just keeps getting worse. I might be stopping by to see a doctor about it b/c I'm so uncomfortable! Well there's my update hopefully the next time I can say we're all completely healed. Keep your fingers crossed!
