      I just spoke with Ed Ashby and he got his second knee replacement a few days ago and is out of the hospital, walking 200 yards at a whack, in high spirits and says he’s looking forward to finally getting back to hunting soon. All this chain of medical problems began with crippling back pain and now it appears that perhaps the two bum knees contributed to that. So, knees, back, heart and prostate all are looking good, weight is falling away as exercise become possible again and the future is bright for our favorite arrow lethality scientist. And I’ll bet we’ll be seeing more of the Doc here again to liven things up. Great news. Go get ’em, Ed! dave p

      LOL EFOC thats pretty darn funny.
      Its great to hear he’s on the mend. Its will never cease to amaze me how the more dedicated hunters will overcome any ailment and get back to it. I had an instructor at my hunter safety course in Florida that had lost both legs from the knees down. He too had EFOC so I’m assuming it was diabetes. Anyways the guy still hunts and not only hunts but he demonstrated how to use a climber. I wouldn’t have belived it if he hadn’t taken one of his legs off and threatened to beat one of my class mates with it! Anyways keep it up Doc but don’t over do it!

      Great news!! Looking forward to visiting more with you, Doc. Like some of the others said, don’t over-do it too soon. Don’t want you to have any more problems.

      Michael.
