Posting a photo of her holding hands with her son as they sat together in the hospital, the mom of two wrote over the picture with a lengthy paragraph.

"I don't have the words, idk where to begin. We have been overwhelmed with a huge amount of love and support over the last few days. To the people who have reached out in any capacity, we will never be able to express in words how meaningful it has been," Madison wrote.

"The most important update is that Toby is out of the PICU and we are continuing to take it day by day. God is so good and we are so blessed @swannypops," she continued.

"We are so grateful for the speedy first responders to the accident, to the pedestrians that helped as we waited the next step, and to the AMAZING staff at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital 🤍 someone has truly been watching over my little man."

On Sunday, the pitcher’s son was airlifted to Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg after a valet driver at the Opal Sands Resort hit the boy, according to Fox affiliate WTVT.

The station reported that he was in critical condition. Police told the Tampa Bay Times that Toby suffered life-threatening injuries.

The team shared the news of the accident before the Blue Jays-Detroit Tigers spring training game on Tuesday, and said in a statement that Toby “is on the road to recovery.”

“Thanks to the incredible work from Clearwater first responders, Toby is on the road to recovery and is surrounded by his family,” the Blue Jays statement read, according to MLB.com.

Blue Jays manager John Schneider credited Swanson’s teammates for supporting the reliever, who joined the team last season.

“We have unbelievable resources up and down this organization,” Schneider said. “We have an unbelievable group of guys who are in that clubhouse who are very, very close. They spend a lot of time together off the field along with other families. You lean on those guys. You come together as an organization as quickly as you can and help however you can."
