He was on a job today at this ladies house and she has a pitt. she locked him up but one of the kids came home and let it out. It attacked him from behind. His arm is shredded and his legs and side are bittin up pretty bad. He has to have reconstructive surgery on Wednesday to try to put it back together. It really sucks. If he loses the use of his arm it will be horrible for him because he won't be able to work in his field anymore. He is also a big outdoors man and it would really be bad. Please say a prayer for him. THe dog was put to sleep because they family had complaints against this dog, he never bit but was always acting vicious. I have nothing against pitts because I am a dog owner myself and any breed can become violent but this was really bad. Thank God it was not a child that this happened too. I mean Ben is a dog owner himself and knew what to do to protect his face and throat but a child would not have done that.
Ben was scheduled for surgery today to repair the damage but when the doctors saw how bad it was they decided to do it Friday because it will take a very long time to try to repair all the muscle and nerve damage. He is on some very high powered pain killers and is at home trying to rest. The good news is he has one of the best surgeons working with him and he is expected to make a full recovery. I hope so, Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I showed him this and he said Thank you so very much for caring about him. Please continue to pray for him. Thank you all for all of you care and concern! We really appreciate it
