An ex-girlfriend of mine lived in a small cabin and the owner of the property (his house was located there as well) owned a female wolfdog. It took months before she would approach me. But after I got to know her, and she me, she would race alongside my truck when I came onto or was leaving the property. I was able to gain her trust by acting submissive to her at first. Really cool animal.

Initially my thoughts were - everyone makes a mistake, that's what insurance is for. You can be the best driver in the world and still get into an accident. But it was the process of going through the malpractice lawsuit that left me bitter. Also, toward the end of the lawsuit I received a letter from the state medical board that he had been officially reprimanded for harming about a half dozen people in a few short years. So while I'm sure he didn't want to hurt anyone, he was making more mistakes than he should have been. Well that's my interpretation judging from the letter from the state anyway.

Thanks for you input, I appreciate it.

Did you hear about the young men in NH who hacked up a mother (killed her) and maimed the daughter with machettes? One of them said that they were influenced by Dexter. If you did hear about it, how did it affect you, if at all?

Not trying to thread jack but I had a similar problem - had to have a colon resection - except in my case a section of my left ureter was also removed (ureter drains urine from your kidney to your bladder). I had to have a tube through my back into my left kidney to drain the urine while waiting for the urine pockets in my belly to go away which took about 9 months. In that time frame I had approximately 10 CT scans and was seeing a urology specialist. I was hospitalized numerous time (always had a bag packed) and at one point I was going into renal failure. The specialist eventually repaired the physical damage but one of the options to auto-transplant my kidney was no longer viable and said I would be at risk for dying. I am left with a scar that runs from my pubic bone to above my belly button, as well as the scar on my back from the tube.

I did sue but I cannot talk about the outcome. All I can say was that it took ~3 years and if I had to go through it again, I don't think I would. It took its toll on me mentally and physically and it fundamentally changed me. My wife and I are now divorcing and I believe this contributed to most of the reason why.

It sucks and I literally, feel your pain. It is appalling to me that a doctor can "make a mistake" like this and just be able to walk away from it. Having been through it, I don't think it's right.

Also, fuck medical malpractice insurance companies.
