Silver_Wolf (Jen) is back home after surgery
« on: June 30, 2013, 11:20:00 AM »
Jen's neck surgery (3 level cervical discectomy w/ fusion) is complete and she's home again.  The first two days were not pleasant, but thankfully things are better today.  

Now, she's looking forward to her new Schafer Silvertip (coming in August)!

That's good to hear. Nothing like a new bow to help the healing, I know it works for me.

Hey guys!

Jen hasn't seen your notes yet, but I'll make sure she does.  

She getting better daily... I think.  Pain is ever present.  Her voice is still horse. Swallowing is not easy... soups, popsicles, and oatmeal seem to be the ticket (along with some very good meds).

Rest, and daily walks are what she needs the most.

Hope she does well and recovers quickly. Wish her the best and it was good to see and shoot with you at STAR. Take care.
If you think you can or think you can't-you're right.

David - tell Jen we are thinking of her.  As you know my wife went through two of these operations.  Time will heal all.  Becky is back to shooting her bow with no problems.  Take care.

To all... from JEN:

Sitting on the computer right now is not my idea of fun, so this will be short.

Thanks to all for the prayers, wishes and hugs.

Your sis,

Jen

Update:  Jen's doing well on her neck surgery (3 discs removed, allograft material put in, a plate with 8 screws installed).  

She sees the neuro on Oct. 09, and hopefully she will be "released" from his care.  

Dave and Beth shipped her new 3 pc. Schafer Silvertip in mid-August. I put it together and placed it on the wall (no, I haven't shot it either) as a incentive.   When she's ready... it's there for her, but she'll have to work back up to it.

She won't be starting hunting season until... maybe... November(ish), I think.

We will see.  Safety first!

The bucks should still be moving in mid November(ish).  Nothing like a big buck to start the season off right, and show up the man of the house:)

I hope the recovery continues to progress on schedule.  I miss seeing you guys!

Thanks Bill.  She say, "Awwwwwww, that was nice".  We both have agreed that she won't be backpacking her tree stand in this year... so, the ground is a good place for her.  However, we do have some two person ladder stands located in another county.. so, who knows!?!?!

I, for one, would love for her to get some blood on the new Schafer.
