    He is gaining more strength/stamina every day. We are working on getting his cardiac rehab up and going. It takes an act of Congress to get all the paperwork in order. He has doctor's orders not to try to shoot until Feb, but he isn't going to push too hard, too fast so it will probably be in March at the Southern Grand before he registers any targets. Thanks for caring...

    When we first learned that Leo would be having heart surgery, the last thing I considered was the time/effort it would take to keep everyone updated on his progress. I've tried to keep up, but failed at times. It was such a comfort to have so many shooter friends keeping us in their thoughts and prayers. Trapshooting is a unique sport in many ways and at the top of the list are the wonderful folks we have met or hope to meet someday. Thank you all...

    Thank you for the extra effort in keeping us all informed, you must realize being the great person Leo is, people are curious and concerned. He "is" one of the greater ambassadors of trap, and one that all recognize. Scott

    Karla, sorry to hear about Leo. I just read this post. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. I will never forget your, and Leo's kindness and your offer to come to St. Louis if I needed anything. They don't make people like the two of you anymore. Heart trouble is my problem now, but I have adjusted. My Prayers are with you two. Two of the finest people I will ever meet.

    Mr. Charles

    Hi Karla,

    But I bet Leo is plenty busy in this trap downtime inspecting coins under a loop, cataloging his collection, and talking with other traders! Bet he is also a AAA27AA numistamist (sp) as well.

    Karla & Leo,
    Just a word of advice. In 2005, I had open heart surgery. The doctor didn't want me to shoot for 3 months until things healed properly. But while going through cardiac rehab (the BEST thing that you can do), I was feeling pretty good. Everyday I got a little stronger. The more you move and get back to normal, the better it is physically and mentally. I was just itching to shoot again. I talked my doctor in to letting me try it with my Stock-Lock and one ounce loads at 2 months. He was really hesitant and doubtful but I convinced him to let me do it. Well, I did and I lived through it, but DON'T DO IT ! Wait the three months.
    While shooting, just after two months, I split my incision open about an inch and now I have a "strawberry" scare where it split. It eventually healed and you guessed it, I'm still alive. And it did hurt that first time I shot then, but I won't admit it. Mentally, it help me heal because I was back shooting, but physically it hurt. Good Luck and push yourself during cardiac rehab. I hope to see you at the Southern Grand.
