ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The Winder 2-year-old who was critically injured in October 2012 when a tree branch fell on his head during a storm is having emergency surgery.

Tripp Halstead's mother, Stacey Halstead, posted on Facebook that Tripp had a CT scan Friday afternoon.

The scan detected fluid on his brain.

Halstead said the surgery is "more invasive this time."

Earlier Friday Halstead posted that Tripp had a fever, his heart rate and blood pressure were up, and he was back on oxygen.
