ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The parents of the toddler critically injured outside his Winder daycare have updated their Facebook page about his condition.

Bill and Stacy Halstead said their 2-year-old son Tripp had a good night Thursday night, all things considered.

"He had his moments but his medical team was on top of him all night and keeping him as comfortable as possbile (sp). He is on a medicine to help him through his "storming," the doctors/nurses compare it to valium in a way. I jokingliy (sp) asked if he felt "real good" and they laughed a bit and said he is probably enjoying himself right now, so that put a smile on our faces," said the family on the Tripp Halstead Updates Facebook page.

"Another of his doctors from his first minutes in the hospital here stopped by to check on him this morning and was pleasantly suprised (sp) and very happy that his breathing tube was removed. We mentioned taking babysteps forward and he implied there was no baby in that step, that was a full on leap. It is amazing how much they all really do care here, you have to be a special person no doubt. We love you all and I know we say it on every post but please keep lifting Tripp up in your thoughts, prayers and well wishes. The strength we are all drawing on is from all of you."

The Facebook page dedicated to updated on Tripp has 55,694 fans and counting.
