Jonathan is itchy...

After coming home from our fabulous trip, Jonathan started itching. We soon realized that he had somehow come in contact with poison ivy! (At first we thought that he may have gotten it from the Sacred Grove...or maybe from Niagara Falls when we hid behind that building during the rainstorm...who knows...?) Anyway...apparently he's crazy allergic to it and within a day or two of us returning it had spread all over his body. The other night Jonathan was about to put on another layer of calamine lotion...when I noticed that his leg was oozing...yes oozing!


We finally got him to the doctor and they gave him a nifty old shot and most of the outbreaks seemed to be drying out and going away...but of course this morning more decided to appear on other parts of his legs. He's so itchy...and all that I can really do is bring him his calamine and benadryl...

I feel extremely helpless...

Oh no! :( I wonder why he got it and no one else did? I hope he feels better soon!

(Thanks for all the nice comments on my blog. You two are sweet.)
