Gene,

Having endured a simular experience as you have in the past, I want to offer some advice. My surgery was on Dec 22nd of 2002. Although I went to cardiac rehab and worked out hard, when bow season for elk came late in August of 2003, I found I was unable to come to full draw with my recurve because of pain from my chest surgery. My solution was to drag out my old compound below, set to 50# and found I was able to roll it over and come to full draw. I then went off to chase the mighty Roosevelt elk. I did what I had to do to go elk hunting. Just giving you a heads up on problems you may encounter come the Fall hunting season.

I hope you recover quickly and do not intimidate the nurses too much during your stay. Get well very soon.

Dave

Gene so happy to see that you are home and doing well. I used to run a cardiac rehab program and can tell you they are tough but well worth it. I know you will work hard and get back in shape for the bow season. If you ever have any questions just give me a phone call.

Great News Gene, I know there are a few un-found shed antlers out there waiting for you.

While you are at it, Maybe its time to see if you will be able to play the piano now that you are out. :lol:

Hey Gene,
Really happy to hear your on the mend now! Sorry I haven't extended my best wishes sooner, but I have been away from the site for a few weeks and missed the news. I had a scare myself and had
five stints placed in my heart last October. I was lucky and didn't have to endure any bypass surgery like you have had to do. But it sounds like You will be back on your feet really soon.

Wishing you only the best and a full recovery!
Harry

Yep, Gene is doing great and has clearance from the Doctor to do anything "normal". He will be ready for November.
