one of my good friends stays payin’ bail about pit bulls.
i refuse to let my feet off their necks.
something about those dogs is dangerous af to me.
i feel like it’s in their nature to snap and maul your ass.
i read a story today that didn’t help change my mind.
the victim was mauled and had her arms amputated by a pit bull mauling.
she found out she had no arms when she awoke from her coma.
per daily mail…
A South Carolina mom-of-three who was mauled by three pit bulls woke up from a coma recently only to discover that both her arms had been amputated – and got so upset that doctors were forced to sedate the victim and put her back on a ventilator.
Kyleen Waltman, 38, was attacked by the trio of dogs when she was walking home along a gravel path lined with trees near her home in rural Honea Path, about 80 miles northwest of Columbia, South Carolina.
In a heartbreaking post on GoFundMe, Waltman’s sister, Amy Wynne, shared the series of health battles she’s faced since the attack, including high blood pressure, fever, and respiratory issues.
She also wrote that Kyleen was so viscerally upset upon finally waking up that doctors were forced to sedate her.
‘Now they have took off everything on the arms that now she can not have regular prosthetics,’ Wynne wrote.
‘So here we are trying to figure out how to keep her from thinking negative thoughts about her life. I understand that for 38 years she’s had arms and now she doesn’t, how she’s thinking. She’s still fighting. Prayers are working and slowly she healing.
Walter has undergone several surgeries and is scheduled for more, according to a GoFundMe set up for her medical care, which has raised more than $161,000 as of Monday night. She might also need her esophagus removed.
Tanya Gilmer, Waltman’s best friend, told WGN Radio that the dogs ‘pretty much ripped all the meat from [Walter’s] arms,’ and that the woman now has ‘a hole in the back of her head.’
according to reports,
she was mauled by her neighbor’s pit bulls as she was walking home.
This story is so sad
i literally cried for this woman.
imagine waking up and seeing you have no arms?
imagine waking up and your way of life is officially changed?
all your dreams and goals are shattered.
she was literally minding her business and this happens.
life can be so fucked up.
i won’t even cap:
I would request to have to put me down.
i’m not even joking.
i pray for kyleen to find peace in her pain.
sending her my prayers for strength in this dark and cruel time.
