According to KBTX-TV, Bodie Boring was at a job site with his father July 27 when the accident occurred, fracturing the child’s skull, bruising both his lungs, breaking his pelvis and causing a brain bleed.

Bodie’s mother, Samantha Boring, has provided social media updates as her son’s condition has improved.

“Bodie told me, ‘Mommy I knew when I saw that blade about to hit me that I was gonna die,’” his mother said in an early Facebook post.

Meanwhile, a July 29 MRI revealed Brodie suffered a blood clot on his brain, yet the child was walking on his own to the shower that day and was able to walk the hospital’s hallway with the use of a walker just two days later, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

“You may be tough but you aren’t walking 4 days after getting ran over by an 18,000 lb bulldozer tough,” Samantha Boring wrote on Facebook.

According to the Star-Telegram, doctors were able to stabilize Bodie’s brain bleed and move him out of the intensive care unit on Wednesday.

“God has big plans for my boy & I can’t wait to see what mountains he will move!” Samantha Boring wrote on Facebook Thursday, sharing a video of a smiling Bodie as he walked on his own in his hospital room.

The Boring family has launched a GoFundMe page to help offset the costs of Bodie’s medical care. The online campaign was within $9,000 of its $60,000 goal by Sunday afternoon.
