Dan McKown WALKS out of hospital!
The world's full of bad news, so how about some GOOD news? Dan McKown, the hero who just before Thanksgiving attempted to stop a nut-case shooter in a mall in Tacoma, Washington, and ended getting shot several times, has WALKED out of the hospital.
The doctors had said he would never walk again, due to the spinal cord damage done by one of the bullets. Dan, however, refused to accept their diagnosis, and maintained from the beginning that he WOULD walk again. And he has now walked out of the hospital under his own power! Now THAT'S good news!
Here's an excerpt from the Seattle Times article:
"God doesn't do miracles halfway," he told KOMO-TV as he left Good Samaritan Hospital in this community near his Tacoma hometown. Referring to the spinal injury, he added, "At least you know I have a backbone."
He has feeling now in his legs, and is walking with the help of braces and the walker.
More power to Dan, you just can't keep a good man down!!
