Landon Broussard, the Delcambre boy who was struck by lightning last month while vacationing with his family in Alabama, is showing signs of improvement.
WPMI-TV in Mobile, AL reports Landon still has a tracheotomy and is unable to speak but he is now opening his eyes.
"He opened his eyes and watched the Atlanta Braves game on T.V.," his father Clay Broussard told WPMI-TV last week. "The prayers are always coming in. The gifts, the cards. We have a small community, but a strong community back home."
The family also told the TV station that Landon is getting physical therapy twice a day, and as soon as he is well enough, he'll be transferred to a hospital in New Orleans, to be just a little bit closer to family, friends and home.
