By popular demand

Seriously, only a few have actually asked to see this. Why, I ask you???
I feel like I need to add a cute picture of Paige or Emily to this post - but I am thinking this rashy post needs to stand alone. YUCK. He is feeling a little better - much less itchy.
For better or for worse, right? Love you hunny. Even when you are all red and rashy.

That is NASTY. That looks like an allergy. Happened to me once around horses. Feel your pain bro.

Must say something about me that I needed to see that against your advice. Not pretty. Sorry Er, hope you're feeling (and looking) better soon.

Though I am not 100% sure, it seems that this is an allergic reaction to the 5-6 hours of unprotected sun exposure last Tuesday when I set up the obstacle course. I certainly didn't expect to be out in the sun for nearly that long, and it's a hard lesson learned. The itching drove me about mad for the first couple of days but it is starting to subside now. It is really tough to get any sleep like this. I have gotten about 5 hours sleep combined over the last 3 nights. I hope I can get some decent sleep tonight so I can keep my strength up. Our annual family reunion at Allison's Aunt Joan's farm is this Saturday and I need to be ready for the various sporting events we play. When I swing the bat I want that ball to go out into the cornfield! I think I will wear SPF 125 sunscreen that day.

WOW! I saw something like this one time before, right before the dude died. Sleep tight.

Really though, I hope that clears up soon. You will be holding our "bat-ball" team afloat since Julie and I won't be making it to the farm this weekend.

Eric, I hope you are taking benedryl too. You should be on this in addition to the steroids.

Poor Eric. That looked like it hurt.
