GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Mitzi Byrd, the mother of ECU baseball commit Parker Byrd, says her son has been moved out of the ICU at ECU Health Medical Center into a step-down room.

Mitzi Byrd provided the update Monday afternoon on social media that Byrd was thrilled about the move, and that he did well during surgery.

“His doctor was happy with his blood flow,” Mitzi Byrd said. “He said there were still some areas that had bad blood flow and he is worried about the area over the fibula head, however, he thinks that it will still heal and be okay.”

Parker Byrd’s mother shared that the doctor said it wasn’t the most optimal situation, but he thinks it will still work, adding that her son still has an epidural for pain control and the hope is that that continues to help.

Mitzi Byrd’s previous update was that her son was let out of the hospital for the first time in 15 days to see his younger sister.

The teenager has undergone numerous surgeries since his boating injury on Bath Creek back on July 23.
