MADISON, Miss. (WLBT) - Deputy Brad Sullivan is on the road to recovery months after suffering a critical injury in the line of duty.

Tuesday afternoon, the Praying for Deputy Brad Sullivan Facebook page shared a video of Sullivan taking a few unassisted steps in physical therapy.

“If you don’t believe in miracles, If you don’t believe our father makes the impossible, possible, If you think that God cannot deliver you from temporary situation that seems permanent, Then you talk to my friend, Brad Sullivan,” the captions reads.

It was only a few weeks ago, Nov. 15th, that Deputy Sullivan stood tall for the first time since the accident.

In another post, Sullivan is seen sitting next to Kathryn Crawford in physical therapy with the caption, “Brad is always making friends."

Sullivan can also be seen on the Facebook page smiling next to autographed football helmets from Coach Matt Luke of Ole Miss and Coach Joe Moorhead of Mississippi State.

According to Sullivan’s brother, the Madison County Deputy received a traumatic brain injury during a standoff in September.

Since then, law enforcement and celebrities from around the country have sent their well-wishes to Sullivan, including rocker Ted Nugent who said, “Hey Deputy Brad Sullivan, the Nugent family is praying for you and we salute you for your heroic warrior service.”

There have also been several prayer services for the Sullivan’s family.

“We, again, cannot thank each of you enough for all your prayers. Please continue to pray as we move to the next phase of his recovery,” read an update from the family in October.

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, who visited Sullivan at the beginning of November, said that Sullivan is determined to walk out of the hospital in December and asks everyone to, "Please hold him up in your prayers.”
