Poor everyone. That is something I think about sometimes, because I love my animals so much. I'll have to open up my own pet grievance group.
Take it easy,

At my last doctor's visit, one nurse was taking my blood pressure and I was talking about how I hoped I gained some weight. Another nurse was walking by and said to me "You could take some of mine." I said "Okay, I'll take 30 pounds." Later I thought Oh my goodness, did I just say she needed to lose 30 pounds. She smiled when I said it but sometimes we're harder on ourselves than need be.

As I read your story, I put myself in your friend's shoes and I am sure he knew you said it as a sympathetic gesture, as in, "I am sorry to see you hurting, please feel better soon." but to have said something like that, might have only embarrassed him as he was feeling sad and near tears and surely didn't want to lose it in front of you and everyone else there.
I agree with your hubby, I'm sure he appreciated you saying anything period and I'm sure what you said had no ill effect on him at all.
Now, you feel better okay?

I can tell that you have a very special, kind and loving heart and your husband...who also sounds like not only a wise man, but a man who knows his wife by expressing that in what he said to you.
Barefut...I feel...is right on, with what she said.
I love dogs and I've also had to have four of my loyal/loving dogs "put to sleep". If anyone had said what you said to that man, I would have thought that it was very special of that person to care enough and say something.
It was sweet of you to acknowledge this man and I'm sure he appreciated your words.
