Faith

for those of you not connected on Facebook - have been following this since yesterday, and thought our group should pray . . .

Faith Ryan, who will be a 3rd grader this year, was stung by a sting ray yesterday at the beach. It sounds as if they thought, at first it was a bee sting, and it sounds as if they were following the instructions of the lifeguard - but as she started experiencing high fever, they took her to the doctor today, who confirmed it was a sting ray sting, and they admitted her to the hospital.

Her last update on Facebook reads:

" . . . They're giving her antibiotics and oxygen,watching her breathing and treating the wound. She's had a high fever since last night... I feel so bad I had no idea it was this bad..I even told her to suck it up yesterday thinking it was a bee sting. Doc said he's seen big tuff surfers fall to the ground screaming in pain...she's a tuff girl!"

Thanks for your support for Faith and the Ryan family.

Wow...poor baby! Do you remember in Jr. High when we were at the beach and my Dad got stung by a sting ray? He still won't go back in the ocean because of that:) So I know she must be in a lot of pain. I will be praying for her!
