ATLANTA -- So many people are drawn to the story of Tripp Halstead, an adorable little boy fighting a battle to survive.

Two-year-old Tripp has been in the hospital since October, when he was hit on the head by a falling tree limb at his Winder daycare center. It crushed his skull to pieces.

More than 330,000 people nationwide are following updates on Tripp's condition on Facebook.

Stacy Halstead, Tripp's mother, said she receives about 100 e-mails a day from well-wishers who are touched by her son. Several people have also sent donations, which have allowed her to stay by Tripp's side at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta as much as possible.

Monday morning, she told 11Alive that Tripp is doing well, and that he may be able to come home as early as this week.

Over the weekend, several volunteers gathered at the Halsteads' Jefferson home to remodel it and make it easier for Tripp to navigate.
