So sorry viginiarose to hear about the damage but if its any consolation, it's late in the hosta season and next spring they will be good as new.

I echo Irene's thoughts. I'm sorry about the damage, but they should be fine for next year.

Oh, I'm so sorry, virginiarose. Having suffered bad hail damage in June this year, I can feel your pain.

Fortunately, your babies got through most of the growing season before they were damaged--I would bet that they'll look good as new next year. Just leave the damaged leaves where they are (unless they turn yellow and die) and wait for next spring. :)
