Easton Oliverson is doing much better and finally headed home.
The 12-year-old, who fell from a bunk bed at a Little League World Series dorm and suffered a skull fracture two weeks ago, is now getting ready to go home from a Pennsylvania hospital, his family confirmed on Instagram.
The Instagram account set up to provide updates on injured Little Leaguer Easton Oliverson posted a video of the 12-year-old on Tuesday speaking after being transferred to his home state of Utah.
“Hi everyone, this is Easton — thank you for all of your prayers,” Easton said. “Please keep praying for me as I continue to get better, I know the prayers and blessings have worked, and that heavenly Father is blessing me.”
Easton was due to take part in the Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, with his Utah-based Snow Canyon Little League team, but suffered a fractured skull after falling from a bunk bed at the players’ dormitories.
It required him to be airlifted to a hospital.
Since his fall, he went from a medically induced coma and eating without a feeding tube.
The post also expressed gratitude for the doctors who “saved Easton’s life.”
“They have executed each step in Easton’s journey from the first night until now with love, precision, intelligence, and care. We have, and will always have the utmost respect” for the doctors, it said.
The update noted that while Easton has made remarkable steps toward recovery, he “still has a long road ahead of him.”
