On January 1, Marvel star Jeremy Renner suffered serious injuries when he was run over by his seven-ton snow plow. The Hawkeye actor suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and underwent surgery.
After his surgeries, he remained in stable but critical condition in the ICU.
Two days later, a "messed up" Renner posted an update to Instagram, garnering reactions of relief from friends, family and fans from all over.
Renner also showed off his "spa day" on January 5 in a video he posted to Twitter of his mother and sister giving him his first bath since the accident.
Renner spent his birthday in the ICU, celebrating his 52nd on January 7.
On Friday, Renner shared an update from the ICU. In an Instagram story, he shared a photo of himself sitting up in his hospital bed surrounded by the ICU team that has been caring for him.
The words on his story read:
"Thank you Renowned Medical ICU team for beginning this journey."
Many on Twitter took the opportunity to wish Renner a happy birthday and share their relief the actor is on the mend.
Several also thanked the medical staff for their commitment and diligence.
Happy birthday, Mr. Renner—we're so happy you're on the mend!
