Chase Update

He's out of the hospital, recuperating at his Grandma's house, and doing very well. He will have one more surgery (to stitch his head back together - there's some bone plates waiting in a freezer somewhere...) and he just has to be protected from any damage to his head - so he's wearing a helmet and being watched carefully. But he's playing the piano, his vocabulary is as big as ever, and he's expected to make a full recovery and return to USD in January. Whew.

He's always been an incredible kid, but this recovery takes him off the charts! As his friend said, "If it wouldn't have been Chase, we would have worried." That says it all.
