Maria Shriver has expressed relief that her youngest son Christopher was released from hospital on Monday night. He had been in hospital for more than a week, following a boogie boarding accident in which he suffered a collapsed lung, broken ribs and broken bones.
“Blessed to be able to take Christopher out of the hospital last night. What a feeling of relief to know that he’s going to be fine,” Maria Tweeted on Tuesday.
She and her estranged husband Arnold Schwarzenegger have been by their son’s side together since the accident. Maria even spent each night at the hospital with Christopher.
Maria Shriver thanked everyone for their love and support following the accident. She said that Christopher felt the love and was grateful for it. She also thanked the “amazing doctors, nurses and hospital staff in the ICU.”
She also offered her prayers for the many sick people and their families that they met in the hospital, many of who have a long road to recovery ahead of them.
Christopher had been in the hospital for over a week since the accident which happened in Malibu.
His father, Arnold Schwarzenegger, also Tweeted the news of his son’s release for the hospital.
“I knew Christopher couldn’t be stopped! Big thanks to all the doctors, nurses & staff at UCLA that helped him recover,” Arnold, a clearly proud father, wrote.
Despite spending time together in the hospital with their son, Arnold and Maria have not reunited and are proceeding with their plans to divorce.
