Help after stingray barb to the back.

UPDATE #2 We thank everyone for the continued donations. Kristie is still undergoing wound-care twice a week and occupational therapy 3 times a week to regain mobility in her shoulder. She feels defeated most days by simple tasks, but her overall outlook remains positive that thing will get better soon. We are forever gratefulfor the love and support. UPDATE: Kristie has been released from the hospital and is now resting at home. Hello all, I am fundraising for my wife Kristie after she was stung on the back by a stingray. The stingray was wounded and dying when Kristie leaned back in the water to get her hair wet, and the stingray got her with two barbs in the muscle of her upper back. The barb penitrated about three inches into her and missed her lung by 3cm. She may have nerve damage, it is too soon to tell. Kristie is a travel nurse and has to delay her next assignment by at least three weeks. We are starting this gofundme in order to help with medical bills and for monthly expenses while she us out of work. Thank you.
