Poor Tammy!!

This morning my sis in Oklahoma called and said her SIL Tammy, who happens to live one mile from me, has contracted a very servere case of poison sumac!! EEEKKK! Well I have never had this affliction, but I am extremely allergic to poison oak so I can certainly feel her pain. Beth said she had been to Wal-Mart (tammy) to find some Tecnu to wash with and attempt to get the poison oil off her skin and try to stop the spread, but she was unable to find it. I called Wal-greens and found some there so I made an emergency run to town and got it for her. She was pretty happy to see me. The poor girl looks just terrible. She is litterly covered in poison sumac. Hopefully it doesn't hang on too long.

Ohhh, that is terrible. I hate to itch. What a sweetheart you are to come to the rescue eh?

Aw, that hardly seems fair. Hopefully it goes away soon. I love how the brethren love each other so deeply, and would do anything they could for their brothers and sisters. Good thing that Wal-greens (I think that's what you said??) had whatever that stuff was that you were talking about, that can wash off poison sumac oils.

Oh how sorry I am for her! One of my sons gets Poison Oak really badly. Once he swoll up so much on one side of his face he looked like Quasimodo from the Hunchback of Notredame! I also think you are very sweet to get her the Tecnu and bring it to her!

I can totally sypahize with her! I'm allergic to poison oak too. It's funny that Sis. Lori mentioned it because one time I got it on one eye really bad and kept calling myself Quasimodo! I knew I had to laugh at myself or else I would cry, and crying made the rash burn. I hope she's holding up well.

I'm also glad that things are going so well for your assembly.
