Austin Hatch Released From Hospital, Recovering at Home

Dylan Burkhardt

SPT0507aau_tourneyThe Fort Wayne Journal Gazette confirmed that Austin Hatch has returned from the hospital and will continue his recovery process at home. The Journal Gazette notes that its unclear where Hatch will be living and published handful of quotes from the Hatch family, via e-mailed statement:

“We are extremely thankful and relieved that Austin is home with us,” Hatch’s family said Sunday in an emailed statement.

“While Austin has made great improvements, he still has obstacles to overcome as he continues to heal, grieve and acclimate to life after tragedy,” the statement said.

This is obviously a major step for Austin, but it’s also the just the first of many in a long process. Hatch was hospitalized for the last three and a half months following the crash and he still has a long recovery process ahead.

    I bleed Maze & Blue, but whether Austin every plays basketball again?, I could care less. It is a miracle he is still with us & God has bigger plans than basketball to have kept him here. If he plays again?, thats gravy, I pray for him to heal, especially emotionally with the loss of so much of his family.

    Yeah, I’m praying for you too Austin! God has plans to give you a hope and a future, one step at a time. (Sorry for the cliche’s, but they express both care and the process well).

    Hopefully home helps healing.  Health and wholeness to you, Austin.

    Hope he continues to recover. Sounds to be a hard worker so I’m sure he’ll put all he’s got into it.  I hope to see him play at Michigan one day…talk about toughness, how many kids can say they’ve survived and gone through what he has?
