Meaghan's poison ivy was was AWFUL. I saw what was left - just a tiny little scab in the bend inside of her right elbow. I also saw what will likely be a scar - it was huge, on her forearm, through the bend in her elbow and part way up to her shoulder. After seeing it, its no wonder she probably went through a bottle of calamine lotion a day. Looked like a serious case of road rash. I would say her description of "miserable" is probably an understatement of how she felt, I can't even imagine. Its hard to describe unless you can actually see what it did to her arm. Thank god it was only as bad as it was on one arm and not both.
Good thing she is tough. :)
