be careful with this attitude. i did same thing to ex husband. complain, complain, about indigestion . i said shut up or go to e.r. he did and was having a heart attack. sometimes they don't know what is wrong with them. you are right though , if they choose not to take anything, then they shouldn't complain.

And have you noticed they whine and groan louder if they think you didn't hear them?

Mine won't even let me know when something is wrong..Yet his nose is in all my tests, he pushes in when we see the doctor at the center.It makes me crazy..I know now he is having trouble with his bilirubin it's twice what it should be..Think he will tell me what his doc said..Nope..So he is getting a great big surprise on the 6tht..He is not being allowed in the room to talk with the doctor and I intend to be silent on the way home...This is going to be resolved or else!!!

James and I both see the same doctor, and we usually go in with the other. I like him to come in with me because I don't always remember everything the doctor says (especially if I don't feel well), and he does. In fact, we usually make our appointments together.

I remember my husband last year bellyaching cause I scheduled him for a colonoscopy.......oh you're a hypochondriac (well he's right :)) anyway I went to a lot of trouble to get him scheduled.......people are finally listening.......and the Dr.s are way backed up trying to schedule them.......they really didn't want to do it until the doctor saw him..... I pleaded.........please he only has two weeks here and he's 55 and I promise that I'll deliver him personally ...so they reluctantly agreed.......and guess what.......they found a precancerous lesion.......I asked how long it would have been until it turned into actual cancer and the nurse said 8 years........this is why this is such an unnecessary disease to die from.........the Doc said that if any family member has had colon cancer that you should be examined 10 years before the date of their cancer found........

Not being able to sleep for too many reasons, I read your post texasgirl and feel so sorry. Being an animal lover the way you are this is certainly going to make difference with your husband.

My one brother was such a dog person. He was until he had same thing happen to him just last year. Tried to put rotweiler back into neighbor's yard and as he was closing gate, dog jumped up and bit him in the arm, had to have 7-8 stitches, just when I wasn't home. Neighbor had to rush him to ER as it was bleeding so much. Today, when he sees strange dog he won't try to get near him as i can actually see he is scared. How this changed his feeling for animals is complete turnaround from way he was. My neighbor has this kind of dog and when he gets into our yard, the neighbor tells me that the dog won't bite. After reading this, I know better. Has dobermans too.

texasgirl, I am praying that all will go well with your husband That wound will heal without any problem. I am so sorry and know that he meant well for all concerned. I am sure these people hopefully will learn that this dog is a weapon for all who come near. The dog did this while the owners were around. That is even worse.

I understand about being an animal lover, but....the fact still remains that the dog bit your husband, and he will bite again - or worse. It doesn't even matter if the dog has not been specifically bred for fighting, it's in his genes regardless of how much he apparently loves his owners and hadn't bitten anyone "yet". He has bitten someone "now". I don't know what the laws are where you are at but the dog needs to be put to sleep.
I work in the emergency room at our local hospital and we had an 8 year old boy in 2 evenings ago with severe dog bites all over his face, neck and upper body. He was brought in by ambulance with his dad, when the ambulance/police got to the boy and his dad, his dad was cradling him in his arms, blood everywhere, the boy obviously screaming and in pain. This could be the "first time" this dog ever bit someone also, or he could be someones very loving pet that hadn't ever bitten "before". It still remains that someone is going to get hurt again, and maybe next time it won't come out as well as it has so far. Your husband has an injury that he didn't have before. It's not the dogs fault, it's the owners who don't know their dog well enough who put your husband in danger and now others will be in danger also.

Sorry to seem like such a downer, but peoples lives are worth more than the animals, regardless of how much of an animal lover someone is. :-)

my sister-in-law's lab bit a boy that she was babysitting........thank goodness the person didn't sue her..........but when he bit her own 3 year old son and nearly missed his eye by half an inch she realized that she had to put Jake down........he always got so nervous when there was bad weather and Corpus gets bad weather a lot.......to this day my nephew isn't too keen to be around strange dogs
