This week has went well considering that Monday I had to admit that Yes, I have poison Ivy. I’ve never had poison ivy before despite the fact that I am allergic to a good part of what grows on the earth, and then some.
It started with a few itchy red bumps which turned into itchy red swollen lines, then more bumps and more swelling and horrid itching. It is now Saturday. I still have new itching bumps popping up despite being on steroids since Thursday Night.
I am grateful for prednisone. It has brought me relief from allergies and asthma many times. I know it’s helping. The swelling has gone down and I am not on the brink of insanity with the itching. Well that is until it wears off about 10 hrs later.
I keep telling myself that at some point when the steroid wears off I won’t notice it so much. That will be a good sign. but until then I have poison ivy on my legs, arms, thumb, neck and earlobe. Did I mention my eye has been itching for the past 40 minutes or so?
Oh and Mason is running a fever today. (sigh)
Aside from this, we really did have a productive week and are thoroughly enjoying our newest read aloud – Peter and the shadow thief. We’ve memorized some more songs and Articles of Faith.
The highlight of my week, I would have to say is our trip to see Hamlet. Michael and I went to the theatre and had a blast! It was so awesome! Next week we are off to see WICKED! There are benefits to a son attending college who is required to attend two theatre productions this semester. ☺
