Prayers for Peyton Hillis have been answered!

The former NFL running back had been in the hospital since January 5th after he helped save the lives of six people in Pensacola, Florida. Hillis was on life support and his kidneys and lungs were in great danger of suffering permanent damage in the aftermath of the incident. But thankfully, he has recovered and is being discharged from the hospital. Hillis’ girlfriend provided an update about his health on social media, writing:

“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.”

She also expressed gratitude to the hospital staff, writing:

“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… I mean, I am just in AWE.”
