General Update

First I want to shout an acknowledgement to Katie at Tubbs Snowshoes. Thank you for working with me and that when my knee is better, I will indeed do a review of the Women's Frontier model. Trust me I wish I was out snowshoeing now instead of rehabbing! First things first though.

Secondly I sure hope there are some folks taking advantage of the Klamath County depredation Spec/Snow Goose hunt that is ongoing as I am sitting here. Please start writing and sharing your stories, you know who you are; Hunt, Eat, Live and Norcal.

I am doing my best to let my knee heal and it is going to take some time, more than I really want to admit. I am still cautiously optimistic that I may be able to go on my Spring Bear hunt if I mind my p's and q"s over the next several weeks. Idle is not something I am good at. Time to start practicing though. In the meantime I will continue to workout doing strenght training with my upper body and un-injured leg at the local gym. The good news is that I have dodged surgery and just need to give myself the time and rest required for my partially torn ligament to heal. I can do this. That darned Beaver hole anyway!

Thank you for all the good thoughts via the comment section and personal e-mails, appreciate them all! Now time to get back into story telling mode and all that fun stuff!

P.S. Be careful out there in the field and watch out for them darned Beaver holes!

I hope all goes well and take it easy.

Terry Scoville said...

Thanks Jody and yes I will.

Rick Kratzke said...

I hope you get better real soon so you can get back out where you are obviously more comfortable.

Live to Hunt.... said...

Oh dear, Its never good to get called out by Ms. Terry. I promise I will get right on it! Glad to hear you continue to mend.

Blessed said...

I'm glad you were able to dodge surgery!

Take it easy - otherwise you'll be down a lot longer.

Deer Passion said...

I hate hearing that you're still in the middle of the mending process.. How much longer will you be out of commission? Thinking of you and hoping you get well soon!

Terry Scoville said...

Thanks Jon and I eagerly await your hunting confessions!

Blessed, yes you are right and I am finally out of denial (lol), so I will be good to myself. Thank you!

DP, I wish I was in the middle when actually I think I have not even reached the first quarter of mending. This is a 2nd. degree tear of the MCL and can take up to 6 months to fully heal. Unfortunately in my case I am allergic to all NSAIDS (aspirin, motrin, naprosen etc.) which doesn't help. There may be a thing or two new that the Doc's can do for me though, will keep you apprised. Thanks for the good thoughts, they all help.

Make sure you take time to heal fully. I know it's frustrating, but don't push it and injure yourself again.

You know I'm right!

Terry Scoville said...

LOL!!!! Kristine you crack me up. YES, YES, YES I will/am/are taking it easy and you are RIGHT! Thanks

NorCal Cazadora said...

Next weekend, Terry, God willing and the creek don't rise!

And take care of that knee. You know how your body has a way of making you pay for every misstep - including not allowing yourself to heal. Stupid #$%@# bodies! They get in the way of all our fun.

Terry Scoville said...

NorCal,Thanks, I know what you mean and I hope the creek don't rise! I want to hear all about it.

Interesting and well written account in Lost and Found. Actually, I'm feeling a little chilled but not wet after reading it. Never been lost myself but as Daniel Boone is reported to have said, "been bewildered a few times."
