Jeremy Renner has shared a big update on his health with fans after his devastating snowplow accident in January.
The Marvel star was seriously injured while out helping someone free their vehicle from some very heavy snow, breaking more than 30 bones and suffering blunt chest trauma, which required him to have surgery.
However, he’s clearly trying really hard in his recovery, and after an update saying that he was ‘crushing all the progress goals’ a few months ago, he’s now shared a video showing him up and walking again on a treadmill.
It’s been about three months since the accident, so that’s pretty remarkable progress.
On Twitter, he shared the clip, writing: "I now have to find OTHER things to occupy my time so my body can recover from my will. #minduful #intended #recovery."
Obviously, fans have been quick to congratulate the Hawkeye star on his efforts, with one person commenting: “OMG look at you go so very proud of you keep up the great work. I am so impressed.”
Another wrote: “Good job! So happy to see you up and on two feet.
“Take care of yourself, mind, body, and soul! Love and prayers!”
A third said: “I think I speak for a lot of us when I say we are so happy you're getting better!
“You had us all worried! Keep being strong and can't wait to see you back soon!”
This is just the latest update in Renner’s recovery journey, and you’d have to imagine there’s still a long way to go before he’s fully fit again.
Clearly he’s been hard at it though, as his wife said in January: "If anyone knows Jeremy, he is a fighter and doesn't mess around.
“He is crushing all the progress goals.
“We couldn't feel more positive about the road ahead."
Renner was injured outside his home in Lake Tahoe on New Year’s Day when he attempted to free a stranded car with his snowplow.
In the end, it was his own vehicle that struck him, leaving him needing an airlift to hospital in a ‘critical but stable condition’.
A later statement said: “We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, January 2nd 2023.
"Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve and the Carano and Murdock families.
"They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
While still in hospital, Renner thanked fans for their support, writing: “Thank you all for your kind words.
"I’m too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”
It’s good to see that he’s on the mend and still progressing well.
