JEFFERSON, Ga. -- Bill Halstead said Monday his son Tripp is returning to the hospital. He said Tripp had a "rough night" and a nurse suggested a hospital stay would be a good idea to be safe.

Tripp was in an ambulance on the way to the hospital at 9:30 a.m. Monday.

The 2 year old spent five months in the hospital after being hit in the head by a tree branch in October during Superstorm Sandy. He underwent more than a dozen surgeries, and was just released for the first time Friday evening, when the family posted a personal video showing him being carried through the door for a homecoming party.

A Facebook page updating his progress is being followed by nearly 400,000 people.

Monday is Tripp Halstead Day in Paulding County. Chick-fil-A restaurants in Dallas and Hiram will hold fundraisers for the Halstead family from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
