Luke Siegel Returns to Lubbock
After months battling various health complications following a life-changing golf cart accident, Luke Siegel returned to Lubbock Wednesday afternoon. A crowd of people gathered to give him a hero's welcome and show the support for the Siegel family.
The crowd was composed of over one hundred people who welcomed the 9-year-old back with signs and smiles. Friends, family and the residents of Lubbock showed their support for Luke.
The Siegel family thinks moving Luke back home in a familiar setting will improve his progress.
"Hopefully, we'll get to where it's easier because the quality of life (for Luke) is not that great," said Tim Siegel, Luke's dad. "People think that we're coming home as a celebratory congratulations, but we're really coming home because he plateaued and we think coming home, he'll thrive."
Luke was severely injured on July 28 in a golf cart accident that had him rushed to UMC before being taken to Fort Worth in September. At Cook's Children's Hospital, he spent time healing and undergoing therapy. After making some important improvements, Luke is now home to work towards health along side his family.
Tim Siegel knows that the road to recovery will be difficult, but knows that his son Luke will continue on his path to health surrounded by the people who love him.
