The family of a former NFL star running back has provided an encouraging update after he suffered an accident earlier this month while saving his kids from drowning off the coast of Florida.
Peyton Hillis was placed in the ICU on a ventilator for several days, having received damage to his lungs and his kidneys. But his family and friends announced Saturday he had been released from the hospital.
Angela Cole said: “God is so good! Peyton has been discharged from the hospital. The amount of love and gratitude I have for the incredible team that took care of Peyton is indescribable. This picture does not have anywhere near the amount of people who took such great care of him.
“To Baptist Hospital in Pensacola: Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know I told you this probably 20 times a day, but you are so incredible. You all worked like a perfected machine with each and every one of you so kind, attentive, calming and caring.
“You not only saved Peyton’s life, you made it a priority to make sure that his family and I were okay amidst your busy schedules. You all were so calming, answered every question numerous times kindly… and heck, even took care of me and made sure I was okay every night: got me hot tea for my throat, made sure I was sleeping and eating, gave me a friend to confide in,” she continued.
“I mean, I am just in AWE. You have all became a huge family to me and I know have meant so much to all of us. I can’t express this enough when I say this, thank you for making all the difference in our lives. I’ll never be able to thank you enough!” she added.
“And a huge thank you again for all of your prayers, love and support… God heard. And He answered,” she noted on Instagram.
