"Please continue to keep Easton in your prayers," the family said in a Facebook post. "He is thrilled to be home but understands that he still has a very long road ahead. It’s not going to be easy, but we have faith that his prayer army will continue to carry him through."

Easton was hospitalized due to a serious head injury he suffered after falling from a bunk bed at the Little League World Series in August.

He initially received treatment in Pennsylvania before being flown to Salt Lake City to continue his recovery journey.

Since his injury, people from around the country rallied around Easton and his family, offering support online and in the hospital.

Easton's recovery hasn't been all smooth sailing. He has faced setbacks throughout his journey but has continued to show strength and determination in his recovery.

The family announced on Facebook they set up a P.O. box so people can send Easton cards while he recovers.
