Oliverson, whose nickname is ‘Tank,’ is being handled at Geisinger Janet Weis Youngsters’s Hospital in Danville, Pennsylvania.
“We really feel so grateful and blessed to have witnessed one more miracle in Easton’s restoration!”
The younger athlete was airlifted to a youngsters’s hospital in a crucial situation on August 15. His father advised CNN he was “preventing for his life,” with doctors saying he was just 30 minutes from death. He underwent surgery and was placed in a medically-induced coma.
In the days since, Oliverson has made impressive strides toward recovery, as documented on the @miraclesfortank account. By Wednesday, he was no longer sedated, and on Thursday, he moved out of an intensive care unit and was able to feed himself.
The Instagram account also noted on Saturday that Oliverson may be able to return to Utah this week, with doctors from the hospital in Pennsylvania having been in contact with Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City to set up “journey plans” and hope to have him back in Utah by Tuesday.
On Sunday, Oliverson “was in a position to see his little brother, cousin, and greatest mates (which can be extra like brothers). They introduced him many goodies from the entire groups within the Little League World Collection.”
Oliverson’s Little League team, Snow Canyon from Utah, was eliminated from the (LLWS) in Sunday night, falling 10-2 to Iowa’s Davenport Little League team in a rain delayed showdown.
Oliverson’s dad, Jace, told ABC’s Good Morning America Monday that he’s “pushing ahead” to overcome the hard recovery process for his son.
“The medical doctors are simply shocked by his development on this quick period of time with the place he was,” Jace stated.
