A young boy left fighting for his life after being struck in his home with a baseball bat by an intruder is showing “signs of improvement,” says his father.

Doctors in Georgetown, Texas near Austin are now considering weaning Jeremy off a ventilator as he may no longer need it.

“In Jiu Jitsu speak, he rolled with death and subdued it. He rolled for the function of his limbs and won. He has now rolled for control of his lungs, and it appears that he will win that battle too,” said Jeremy’s dad Arturo Diaz on a GoFundMe page.

Police say Daniel Logan, 39, broke into the home at 5 a.m. and hit Jeremy in the head and also attempted to attack his parents, MEAWW reports.

Logan is the family’s neighbor.

The 6 year old sustained multiple injuries including brain swelling and fractures to his brain.

Logan’s mother may have also been attacked.

According to USA Today, Logan’s wife woke up to loud noises and later found a hole in the fence that separated her home from her neighbors. The affidavit indicated she saw shattered glass in her neighbor’s back patio and heard Logan’s mother screaming.

Court records obtained by People reveal authorities found the suspect’s mother covered in blood. The affidavit stated that she “frantically screamed that Daniel was killing everyone inside.”

Logan has been arrested and faces charges of injury to a child and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, both first-degree felonies punishable by up to 99 years in prison.

A GoFundMe page for the family has raised more than $200,000.

“Jeremy remains in critical care, but he continues to show movement in all his limbs and is responding. We are very grateful for your continued prayers and support. I do believe that your prayers and overall support, in general, are playing a big part in this positive change for the better. ” – Amen! proclaimed Jeremy’s father.
