In one video, he stood with the support of a harness and slowly walked backwards while throwing a ball.

In another photo, he posed with what appeared to be a team of medical personnel and a support dog.

“Nurses are the best,” her mother captioned the photo.

Leakes also penned several messages of gratitude to her Instagram story, including “Home just in time for the holidays” and “To God be the Glory.”

Brentt Leakes suffered a stroke and congestive heart failure in late September. Her mother shared the news on her Instagram Stories on October 10, saying at the time that doctors were still trying to figure out the cause of her medical issues.

She said at the time that her son was struggling to speak and the situation was “very scary”.

“We’re just shocked,” she said. “Just shocked. But I thank you all for your prayers.

The medical emergency occurred less than a month after Brentt’s father, Gregg Leakes, died of colon cancer at the age of 66.

“He was very close to his dad and he was super stressed,” his mother said in October when she broke the news of her son’s stroke and heart problems. “I don’t even know if that has anything to do with it. I really ask doctors questions like that, and they seem to think that’s not the case with Brentt.”
