Josh Moniz took a heavy spill at Supertubos a few days ago, leaving him unable to move or feel his limbs. 

Josh was taken to a nearby hospital and underwent surgery, which today he says went great. He is able to move and was even able to stand up for a moment.

Josh wrote on Instagram:

Just wanted to give my family a update on how im doing. Surgery went great! Im very lucky to be able to feel my feet again and move in my bed. I was even able to get to my feet for a moment today! Everything is on track at the moment and im not sure what a full recovery looks like yet but im very happy to be heading in the right direction. I just wanted to take a second to say thank you to everyone for the limitless amount of love and support from you all! You dont know how much its meant and helped me through these last few days. You guys all have been my life line these last few days and I don’t think I could’ve gotten through it with out all the love! I just want to let you all know how great full i am for you all and I can’t wait to give you all a big hug of love. Love you all josh

Josh is a resilient young man, and we wish him a speedy recovery.
