What a Difference a Day Makes

On the left is Luke's face at the height of swelling, and on the right is Luke just 24 hours later. They took off the dressing this morning and the little trooper was pretty much himself. He made friends all over the pediatric floor just in time to say goodbye to everyone who treated us so well. We are home now and life is hopefully returning to normal, although it seems eerily quiet with Grace still with her grandparents.

This is our last daily post of Luke's progress. We will go back to occasional posting when notable or funny things happen (or next time Grace gets her hands on a baseball). We will eventually post some more pics in his regular photo galleries, but we will spare the general public images of his gruesome 6" scar. Instead, we will thank everyone for their many calls, notes and prayers for his recovery and our well being. We really felt the support from everyone.

We will have much for which to be thankful on Thursday, and Luke has become a fan of UCLA for life. We just hope that they have a decent football team by the time he is old enough to know better.

Happy Thanksgiving, indeed.

Hi Friedl Family,

Luke and your family are in our prayers and we thought about you and Luke often while he was in the hospital. We are so thankful that he is doing well and recovering. He's had quite the experience in his first few months of life. We wish him continued good health and may he grow up to do great things in life.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and may God Bless your beautiful family.

Jeff and Marissa
