Poison Ivy Infection

Matt works for a family down the road. He does little jobs around their house (for example: landscaping, cleaning out cars, pulling weeds, hanging lights and pictures, and fixing things, etc.). Well at work on Thursday he was clearing their back yard when he came across some poison ivy (he did not realize it at the time). On Sunday afternoon we noticed his arm looked like it was swelling from the amount of poison ivy he had. It was also spreading to his legs, stomach, face, and other arm. He went to the doctors on Monday to find out his arm was infected. After a lot of money in medicine we finally feel like it is under control. Matt has been pretty miserable. He is having a hard time staying focused because of how irritable the itch is. Please keep him in your prayers for the next couple weeks.

Finally, somone other than me knows what it is like to not be able to concentrate. Except, I don't have poison ivy. On a side note, look at those guns. And I didn't even have to have a ticket to this show.

Aww...poor Matt! I hope it's starting to feel better. If it makes you feel any better, I had strep throat last week, so I guess we were both pitiful! I'll keep you in my prayers.
Love, Stephanie
