filipins cant even repair a broken dog and flips are supposed to trust their hospitals?

well, not really.. a chef friend of mine put his 3 yr old son in the hospital in march for a BOIL above his knee???

the boy is still there today with an open gaping oozing wound which doctors cant diagnose.
in flip public hospitals patients get cared for by their family members. yep. only care the boy gets is from his dad. mom left. no nurses will attend him. dad must feed and bath and care for his wound and im not sure how often the doctor visits.

basically its a place to go to and die.
the kicker is that dad cant work while taking care of the boy daily, so he cant pay the bills. when the boy dies the hospital wont release his body til the bills are paid.

thats the fils... better to be a fcuking dog

Mr. AMC, Now I know you are a man and not a woman. You love to say dirty , foul words just like a colored person in the States. For lack of a hero somebody called the dog a Hero. It deserves that honor. Our Hospitals here are good and can make the dead come to life if needed, but they would not do it to a dog, no doctor will do that as there will be no sponsors for a "mere" dog. Sometimes, not even to a human being.
