Brian Darnell returned to the room with candy for Luke

After finishing up the ultrasound and appointment, Dr. Brian Darnell returned to the room with a coffin full of Halloween bone candies for Luke at the end of the appointment. Darnell was Jalissa’s doctor when she had Luke and has developed a strong relationship with the family over the past few years. Luke loves going to visit the Darnell, peaking out of the door constantly as he waits for the appointment to start and often bringing a dinosaur to show off.
