Poison Ivy

The marks and the mindset.

They just won’t go away.

We try to remain calm.  We try not to bring them up, yet monitor them closely.

When planning for parties and treats, Kelsey asked if anyone had an allergy.  We talked about allergies to food, animals, and other environmental triggers.

She kept going asking if everyone was allergic to poison ivy.  We kept the discussion alive with stories from mother and father through the years.

“Dad, I must take after you,” she said.

“Have you been near poison ivy lately?”

“I must have been since these marks do not seem to have any other answer.  They must be poison ivy, right?”

If only.  We biopsy to learn.  We pray that we do.

This week, we meet families from around the world with dada2 and PAN.  We search for answers and thank you for all of your support.

To continue supporting our efforts, please do not forget your tickets to our third annual gala: TICKETS.
