I look like the elephant man......

Hey Everyone! I am sorry for my absence yesterday, I spent the day at the doctor then all night at the hospital becasuse I broke out with a rash of Poison Ivy all over my face! You can see here how terrible it is:

so I am taking a steroid pack, got a cortisone shot, and it is clearing up slowly but shurly! So I am going to be back to work tomorrow! :) Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers!

Wow Nikki, so sorry you got poison ivy. Hope you feel better soon. I have never had it before so not sure what I'd do if I got it. Hope that the cortisone shot and steroid pack helps you heal quickly.

Take care,
Molly

thank you so much ladies! its very painful, but it is getting better! I told the Doc at the ER that it felt like someone slapped me with a brick, then shoved me into a fireant pile! YUCK! But its clearing up and I am getting a little less itchy! (not much though!!) I still havent had a good nights sleep, but I am working on it!

Jsut glad I can still work! Thank you again for your sweet words!

Saw you at Riverbend this weekend - and isn't it WONDERFUL what steroids can do?! I had poison ivy last November, and it nearly took over my arms and back. I'd have died without the medication. Glad to see you're doing better!
