Representative Tom Graves shared some good news Monday on social media about his son, John, who had been injured in a cycling accident.

Graves posted on Twitter that John is now out of the ICU and is undergoing various types of rehabilitation at a brain and spinal center. Graves said in his current and previous tweets that he is confident his son will make a full recovery.

"He still has weeks to go before a full recovery, but he's on the right path and exceeding expectation. He's a strong kid with a lot of determination. We're so proud," Graves said in one of the tweets.

John Graves, a member of the Georgia Tech club cycling team, suffered severe head trauma and had multiple spots of bleeding on the brain after he was injured while participating in a road race on March 8. John Graves had to be life flighted to a trauma center. It is not clear what incident occurred that caused the injury.
