Baby Grant’s recovery process took another positive step over the weekend, as he was moved from the Intensive Care Unit into the pediatrics ward at the BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.

“At this point Grant is breathing and virtually eating on his now. Next step – rehab,” said his father Doug in an online update. “Thank you for all your kind words, and prayers.”

The seven-month-old has been in a battle for his life since being pulled from the waters of the Puntledge River on Jan. 30.

Grant’s mother and Doug’s wife, 26-year-old Veronika Sophie Weaver, perished in the incident. It remains unclear as to how the two wound up in the river.

A crowdfunding campaign has been set up to help with the expenses associated with Grant’s recovery.

The update on the crowdfunding campaign is also positive.

As of Tuesday morning, there has been $19,158 raised.
