A Rochester boy who had the flu, pneumonia and MRSA is improving.
Nine-year-old Gage Paul is now out of intensive care and could soon be moved to a rehabilitation center.
He's still bedridden but is able to go on short walks. He is also eating on his own.
Gage became ill in mid-January. It started as a sore throat.
He didn't have a fever at first, so his mom, Nicole, sent him to school. He later went to see the nurse, who called his mother to explain he was still ill.
Hours later, Gage was be hospitalized - and getting X-rays on his lungs.
"His breathing just kept getting worse. His blood pressure was dropping, his fever was sky high. They couldn't get his fever to come down," Nicole Paul said.
He was later transferred to Children's Hospital Boston.
A family-friend, Mike Cayer, has setup a GoFundMe page to assist in any of the family's medical expenses.
So far, it has raised more than $25,000.
Gage's mother told NH1 News that he did receive the flu shot this year, and it could be helping him to fight off the illnesses.
