ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - One of the victims of Sunday's church stabbing rampage appears to be healing very well.
In fact on Friday Gerald Madrid was out of the hospital and getting back to his bail-bond business.
Madrid was among the most severely injured, but you wouldn't know that by looking at him now.
"I'm here today just to take care of some business and get a couple of things handled," Madrid said Friday.
Madrid was back at work in a business suit, but the last time we saw him four days ago he was wearing a hospital gown.
"I really thought I was going to die," Madrid said from his hospital bed then. "I thought, 'This is it.'"
Madrid is one of three people attacked during last Sunday's mass at St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church on Albuquerque's West Side.
Madrid was stabbed multiple times allegedly at the hands of Lawrence Capener , 24.
"The blade was like this, and that's how he got me," Madrid said. "And I didn't even know until people told me that I had been stabbed. It just felt like a real deep punch."
You might consider Madrid a hero. He was stabbed while coming to the rescue of choir director Adam Olivarez , who was the first to be attacked.
All of the victims survived the attack. Capener's in jail facing a string of charges.
And now Madrid's life is getting back to normal.
"I did go on Facebook last night and tell people that I was out of the hospital," he said.
He was discharged from the hospital Thursday afternoon. Within 24-hours later he was back at his business.
His physical wounds are still healing, but his emotional wounds might take some time.
"I'm still kind of in awe," Madrid said. "It just doesn't seem like this is possible. Something like this could take place--maybe on the street, in a street fight--but in church?"
Madrid is recovering from five stab wounds.
Investigators quote Capener as saying he stabbed the victims because he thought they were part of a conspiracy involving Freemasons.
He is still locked up at the Metropolitan Detention Center.
Madrid also can be seen on TV again this weekend. He's set to appear on the new TV series featuring Dog and Beth: On the Hunt Sunday on Country Music Television (CMT).
