Critically injured FedEx Security Guard leaves hospital

KENNESAW, Ga-- More than two months after FedEx security guard Christopher Sparkman was rushed to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital after a workplace shooting spree, he's headed home.

In a Facebook post, Lynn Sparkman posted a photo of her and her husband walking down the hospital hallway lined with cheering hospital workers.

Along with the photo she posted:

This man has overcome. On Thursday, I finally got to bring my man home. We were surrounded with joy & applause from the staff of Wellstar Kennestone Hospital as we walked out of the same trauma hallway that we both came in on April 29, 2014. 73 days, 21 trips to the OR, and one walk out that has changed our lives - he is finally ready to rest/heal at home for the next six months until the final operation. This season of our lives won't be easy, it won't be quick, but we will endure and press on.

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of FAITH, let us strip off every weight that slows us down...and let us RUN with ENDURANCE the race that God has set before us...we do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Champion who initiates and PERFECTS our faith." - Hebrews 12: 1-3‚Äč
