Tripp Halstead goes home from the hospital

Posted: Updated:

Tripp Halstead has been released from the hospital and has returned home.

He arrived home Tuesday night.

The toddler suffered a serious brain injury in October 2012 when a tree limb fell on his head as he played outside his Winder daycare.

During his time in the hospital, he fought off infections and had several brain surgeries.

Tripp was previously released from the hospital on March 29. However, just two days later, he had to go back to the hospital. Doctors removed his gall bladder.

His father, Bill Halstead, wrote this on Facebook:

"We made it home safe, had dinner with the family when we got home. As nice as it is to have 24hr medical care, nothing compares with the comfort and love you feel at home. We have been through some really heartbreaking moments and some really great moments, today is one of those great moments. In these last 5 1/2 months we have laughed, cried, celebrated and been terrified, the only constant in our lives has been the love and support we continue to receive from our friends, family and all of you, our ever growing extended family. We look forward to getting settled in and getting in a groove here at home, getting Tripp back into therapy and showing everyone just how far our little buddy can go in his recovery. We are eternally grateful to all of you for everything, it means so much to us to see just how many people out there are thinking about, praying or just loving our precious Tripp. My families love and prayers go out to all of you."
