Injured Little Leaguer Speaks After Being Transferred Home Post Brain Surgery | “Please Keep Praying for Me”

On Tuesday, the Instagram account set up to provide updates on Easton Oliverson, a wounded Little Leaguer, uploaded a video of the 12-year-old speaking after being transported to Utah. In a video uploaded on the @miraclesfortank account, Easton acknowledged individuals for their prayers and requested them to keep him in their thoughts.

In the video, he says,  “Hi everyone, this is Easton—thank you for all of your prayers. Please keep praying for me as I continue to get better, I know the prayers and blessings have worked, and that heavenly Father is blessing me.”

Oliverson and his Snow Canyon Little League team were scheduled to compete in the Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. He suffered brain problems after falling over the top bunk bed in the dorms. He was flown to Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital by helicopter for emergency surgery.

Oliverson, commonly known as “Tank,” has been recuperating quickly since then. He also fell for the second time and struck his head in the hospital while going to the bathroom. Despite this, the 12-year-old did not abandon his home and eventually returned to Utah.

He had been receiving care at Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Danville, Pennsylvania, before being transferred to Salt Lake City on Tuesday. According to a post on the Instagram account, “While this is a significant step ahead, it is bittersweet to leave behind those who have poured their hearts and souls into Easton’s rehabilitation. THANK YOU to everyone at Geisinger Hospital who was involved in caring for and preserving our boy.”

The statement also expresses gratitude to all of the medical personnel and physicians that helped save Oliverson’s life. It states, “There are no suitable words to express how grateful we are to these two men—the physicians who saved Easton’s life. From the first night till today, they have carried out each step of Easton’s journey with love, accuracy, intellect, and care. We have and will always have the highest regard for these two gentlemen. Jace, Nancy, and the rest of our family will be eternally thankful for everything they have done for Easton over the last two weeks.”

The messages also state that, while Oliverson is doing well, he still has a long road to recovery.

It’s been two weeks since the Little Leaguer needed life-saving surgery after falling in the dormitories at the Little League World Series. He had another procedure on Friday to replace his skull cap. Easton’s face was bloated following the treatment, but he was able to consume one of his favorite meals, nachos, while healing.
