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.
