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 staff and a support dog.

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

Leakes also wrote several messages of gratitude on 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. His mother shared the news on her Instagram stories on Oct. 10, saying at the time that doctors were still trying to figure out the cause of his medical problems.

She said at the time that her son had trouble speaking and that the situation was “very scary.”

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

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

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