RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Robert Wood, Jr. could be out of the hospital as early as Thursday.
His cousin told us Robert has a hole in his esophagus close to his chest. She says it's healing, but for now, he's eating soft, bland foods until he gets better.
Meanwhile, his father released a statement saying he's happy Robert is doing well and that he's even spoken a few words, which he says is rare.
Robert was missing for five days after vanishing during a family outing.
