Hillis’ girlfriend provided an update on his health on social media, writing:
“God is so good! Peyton has been released from the hospital. The amount of love and gratitude I have for the incredible team caring for Peyton is indescribable. Nowhere near the number of people in this picture. Not those who cared so much about it.”
He also thanked the hospital staff and wrote:
“To Baptist Hospital of Pensacola: Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know I say this to you probably 20 times a day, but you are so incredible. You all have each and every one of you. Worked like a perfect machine together. Attentive, calm and caring. Not only did you save Peyton’s life, but you made it a priority to make sure me and his family fit into your busy schedule. in between. You were all very calm, kindly answered every question multiple times… and heck, even took care of me and made sure I was okay every night: hot tea for my throat. Pillai, made sure I was sleeping and eating, gave me a friend to confide in… I mean, I’m just in awe.”
Peyton Hills was released from the hospital to continue his recovery at home.
