Poison Ivy

I'm not sure if it was Poison Ivy or Oak or Sumac... but it got me good. One of the guys from our Buffalo River trip called me a couple of days after we got home and said he had it. I laughed a little and said that I dodged the bullet. In fact, I have never had it.

Well, a few days later... I go it too! It's been about 10 days now and my Poison Ivy is still rocking and rolling. I finally broke down today and went to get "the shot". Apparently there is some type of steroid shot that helps out. Dr. Thompson took care of me this morning, so hopefully this junk will go away soon. I told him he needed to go to the river with us next time... Maybe he can keep us away from the dreaded plants!

Hopefully the shot works.

We'll see,
Ryan

I'm surprised you all didn't come back with millions of chiggers and seed ticks, with all that climbing & romping around ya did. That could have been even worse! =-O
