OMG!I'm ready for a stroke!I'm usually always calm in a crisis and then flip out after its all over with.My son came home from school and went to deliver the orders from the school fund raiser.About 45 minutes later he comes in with my neighbors DIL.He's crying and has a wash cloth on his arm.She told me what happened.Their lab(maybe 2yrs old)was loose in the yard,he walked up to my son,sniffed him and my son went to go by him and he attacked him!Latched in his forearm and started shaking him.Attack mode!The owner was there when it happened.She brought my son home.We cleaned it and called the Dr. We decided to take him to Urgent Care because the puncture was so deep and tissue was comming out of the hole.So she drives us to urgent Care.they clean it well and bandage it up.They usually don't put stiches on human or animal bites.He was crying so hard...it was terrible!She feels bad,I feel bad,the kid feels bad!The dog I guess has nipped at their youngest child before and now this is the last straw.They decided to put him to sleep.Then when her husband called the vet they said they will take him and try to rehabilitate him.They know people who do that,rescue and retrain dogs.So we are all relieved they will try and save his life but what a freaking nightmare!Its just a terrible thing that happened,its no ones fault.We are all friends and neighbors,its just sad and upsetting.I had to put a dog to sleep years ago.Same thing happened.It bit my nephew twice.We got home about 9 and had a quick dinner and my son tried to do his homework and fell asleep on the couch.Poor guy!So tired from all the commotion and crying.I think he'll be staying home tomorrow and resting.Now its all over and done with I just needed to get it all out!All my muscles are sooo tight I can hardly take it.Just took a pill and I'm gonna have a beer and try and settle down.I just feel sick about the whole thing.Thanks for listning.I posted a pic of my sons arm.He's 12 but he's still my 1 and only baby.please pray he heals fast.Thanks,Love Tori

Good morning!Well, I try to find fun every day to share with all y'all, to quote the locals. (All y'all. How plural exactly must "you" be? Hmm.)But what's fun?Gardening. Food. TV. Knitting. Fishing.
