Re: Remember My Brother

Great news about your brother's progress. It's pretty remarkable he'll be going home this soon after such serious injuries.

The size of a cow depends on its sex, age, breed, and condition. A <1 year old Hereford beef steer or heifer will be off the range and headed to the feedlot at 800 lbs for finishing on grain, and slaughter at 1100 lbs. A Jersey milk cow will be out on the range until she's retired at ~three years old, and she'll weigh 2200 + lbs.

I don't know much about cows except they eat grass and hay and that's where milk, hamburger and steak comes from, but I was told by my friend who saw it, this was a milk cow. Regardless of what breed it was it's too big to be hitting with a car!!

My sister in law called my mom last night after they got Terry into the rehab center and told her they were talking like he might be there 3-4 weeks. She said Terry told them he didn't think he could stand more than another week. I think he's getting tired of laying around doing nothing, because several days ago he told his wife he was ready to get busy doing something.

Re: Remember My Brother

They'll be working him hard with physical therapy. No worries there .

There are four main milking cow breeds in the USA: Jersey, Guernsey, Holstein, and Brown Swiss. Holsteins are the largest. I misspoke when I said Jerseys weigh 2200 lbs.

According to Wikipedia, Holstein weight is 1300-1500 lbs, Jerseys are "quite small" at 800-1200 lbs (average 1000 lbs), Guernseys (1000-1100 lbs) average slightly more than Jerseys. Answers.com says Brown Swiss cows weigh 1100-1500 lbs.

Re: Remember My Brother

The best news yet came today. Tomorrow he gets to go home. Thanks to everyone for the thoughts and prayers, and also keep remembering him in prayer, he still has a long ways to go. I'll continue to keep everyone posted as he passes other milestones along the way.

Re: Remember My Brother

Terry went back to the eye Dr. and the surgeon that did his surgery today. Both gave him a good report. I think the surgeon wants to see him again in about 6 weeks. He also went in and worked about 3 or 4 hours last Friday, which I think made him pretty tired, but otherwise didn't bother him.
