After being lost in the Utah forest for four days, Brennan Hawkins is making a quick recovery to normal life. In fact, one of the first things he asked his parents was whether his order of Pokemon cards from Ebay arrived yet.

 

Jody Hawkins (Brennan's mother), said that one of the first things Brennan asked about was whether the Pokemon cards he bought on eBay last week had arrived.
