Sunday: After drama, Nyad resumes swim

Sunday update: After nighttime drama, Diana Nyad is still swimming Sunday morning.

She came out of the water just before 10 p.m. Saturday,  to receive medical treatment for more stings, this time to her face and eyes. She resumed the swim a couple of hours later, at the spot where she came out, her handlers reported.

Because of that, the International Swim Federation official accompanying Nyad told the team, if she completes the swim, it will be still be a  record, but  for a "staged" swim, meaning just as it sounds, it took place in stages rather than one uninterrupted effo

CNN journalists headed out from Key West, Florida, on Sunday morning and expect to reach Nyad around midday. Follow @MattCNN, And come back to CNN.com for updates.

We told the story of Diana Nyad's milestone August swim  in an  hourlong documentary, Diana Nyad: Xtreme Dream.

On that attempt she was pulled from the water after 29 hours. She began this swim just after 6 p.m. Friday in Havana, Cuba.
