Leo Horsen, the Meeteetse boy who was accidentally hit in the head with a shot put on May 2, is awake and on the road to recovery. His Mom, Christine Horsen took to facebook
a few days ago to announce the happy news.
Christine said, "Hopefully, everyone has heard by now, but Leo is awake and
off the ventilator. He has been moved from icu to peds. He is able to
slowly begin to communicate. He is doing so much better. The Dr's are quite
happy. Thank you all for your continued prayers and support! We love you
Christine's facebook page is flooded with support from others in the
community. Tricia Ervin shared a photo to her page
with the caption: "Jayci is playing for Leo today!!! Sending prayers and
love to the Horsen family!" Jayci is seen playing with a #PrayForLeo
If you wish to help the Horsens financially, there are several ways to
