2-Year-Old Boy Hit By Boulder To Be Released From Hospital
ATLANTA, Ga. – It's a miraculous turn-around, for a little boy who's beating all the odds, with an unbelievable recovery.
The family of two-year-old Caleb Brown said he should be released from the hospital on Tuesday. Caleb was hit in the head by a basketball-sized boulder at Fall Creek Falls State Park on October 13.
Caleb barely survived the trip to a Chattanooga hospital, with a number of serious injuries. The two-year old slipped into a coma. All Tim and Tiffany Brown could do was hold their little boy, and pray.
Caleb Brown has been undergoing treatment at Scottish Rite Hospital in Atlanta for nearly a month.
A cell phone camera then captured a pivotal moment. They got a small smile from him, which turned into a big victory, he was finally showing signs of life in November.
Now in December, Caleb is talking a lot.
"We just think he's a miracle, yeah he's definitely, he's a miracle," said mom Tiffany.
The Browns told us even though he's made a lot of progress, there are still problems with his vision, and motor skills.
"He's almost three years old, but they have placed him developmentally at about 18 months, so we still have a ways to go to catch up," said Tim.
Caleb has doing well enough to cut his hospital stay short. After spending Thanksgiving in a hospital, the Browns can spend Christmas at home.
The family hopes to back in Nashville by Wednesday. On Thursday, Caleb will start outpatient therapy at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital three times a week.
The family has also created a detailed website following Caleb's daily progress. If you'd like to check it out, go to www.helpcaleb.com.
