Taking to Twitter, Switzer shared an adorable video of his son playing with a toy piano while revealing that Christian had been discharged from the hospital on Wednesday night and was once again feeling like his playful self.

"Mr. man was discharged from the hospital yesterday evening," Switzer wrote. "We didn’t get any clear answers on why what happened, happened but, to see him sleep through the night with no bleeding and wake up in a playful mood this morning means our prayers are being answered. Thank you all."

On Saturday, the 26-year-old Switzer began chronicling his son's health battle after Christian woke up in his own blood. The nine-month-old underwent three blood transfusions due to low hemoglobin levels and later underwent surgery to address what doctors had initially, but ultimately incorrectly, believed to be the source of the bleeding.

Christian also tested positive for COVID-19.

After several bleeding sites were discovered, doctors took samples for biopsy to see if they could determine the cause. Prior to Wednesday, Switzer's most recent update came on Monday afternoon when he shared that Christian had been moved out of the ICU as he managed to make it through the night without any bleeding issues.

The Browns signed Switzer, who spent the 2018 and 2019 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, to their practice squad in 2020. He was promoted to Cleveland's active roster at the end of the 2020 regular season.
