You have certainly had your share, hope you get some much needed rest.
Sending you sunny hugs and hope you feel better soon!
Wow what a time you had. I too love to fish. I am perfectly content just sitting in the boat with a line in the water. I don't even mind the bait grabbers lol.
For the sunburn on your arms and stuff but not the face, my mother always put vinegar on us as kids to take the fire out of the sunburn. It really does work and its cheap and something we usually have in the house. She used Noxema on our faces too. It seemed as kids our first trip to the pool we always got "cooked" sunblock or not.
Keep an eye on the toe, especially if your foot got in lake water after you scratched it. I ended up off work for a week once due to severe infection in a leg from lake water. My leg and foot swelled terrible. However, I had an old country dr that knew compounds and he did all his own mixing. He made a salve that he put on the wound and bandaged it. I had to go to his office every morning for a dressing change. Whatever he mixed up actually drew the infection out. He was quite a dr.
Your kids caught a baby rattle snake. Their venom is much stronger than an adult OMG. They are all cobras to me.
Take care of yourself.
