I have been stopped in my tracks by a stingray. What an experience, they do sting. One of the hazards of boating on this river is the local fish life who are quite aggressive. On our beaches we do have stingrays and I found mine the hard way. I had been trying to get two teams of youth delivered to a youth retreat. The first day the water got rough so I could only deliver one team. The next morning we set out to take the second team of youth only to be stung while holding the boat. It did not hurt so much at first so I drove the team to the Monkey Island Church. It is an hour and half round trip. When I got back my foot was in fire.
We have a medical clinic on our island and they took care of me as an emergency case. He cleaned the wound and sent me on my way with a prescription for antibiotics. Now I am in bed with a slight fever and a very swollen foot. Pray for my recovery, I have a youth retreat at my place next week with 50 kids.
