Brazyl Ward's parents all smiles as she leaves hospital

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Brazyl Ward's parents received the best Christmas gift they could imagine as their little girl was wheeled out of UMC on Thursday.

The six-year-old left the hospital nearly two months after she was hit by a car on Halloween.

She was greeted by dozens of friends and family members chanting, "Team Brazyl," as her mom and dad walked alongside her gurney.

"My baby did it. She did it. I am so happy. I'm just so grateful that the Lord has blessed us," said Brandon Ward.

Brazyl is now headed to an area rehabilitation facility following two, long hard months in the hospital after being hit by a car on Halloween night.

Her grandmother was one of the most excited to see her leave the hospital after what she said was a two-month long emotional roller coaster ride, with Thursday being the highest point so far.

"It's just beautiful. It is beautiful to see my grandbaby up and out of there on the road to recovery," said Lynn Sherow.

The Wards said while they know the worst is behind them, Brazyl still has a long journey ahead of her.

"She is going to have to learn a lot of things. How to eat, how to chew, how to talk, how to move that right side," said Brandon.

While the six-year-old will have to overcome those physical obstacles herself, her parents said they will be right by her side as they have been for the past two months.

One of the best moments on Thursday, may have come out of sight. That's when Brandon said Brazyl, who has struggled to control the right side of her body and face, gave him and his wife an ear to ear grin, as she prepared to be wheeled out of the hospital.
