On May 20, seven year old Aryanna Schneeburg was shot in the back by an arrow in her Campbellsport neighborhood. The arrow went several inches into her back, slicing her spleen, stomach and lung. Doctors say two centimeters to the right and the injury could have been fatal.

The good news is that Aryanna is now out of the hospital. She is back home. I spoke to the energetic first grader this afternoon.

"It was very scary, but didn't hurt too much," Schneeburg told me.  "I was just glad when they got the arrow out."

When I asked her what excited her the most about getting out of the hospital, she told me, "Eating. I am ready to eat." She quickly added that she is also looking forward to playing outside with her friends.

These are pictures that were snapped while Schneeburg was talking to me on the phone today.
