Phil Harris Continues to Make Progress

He may host Deadliest Catch, but Phil Harris isn't letting the Grim Reaper catch up with him.

The reality TV star is making major progress after suffering a stroke last week. He's now breathing on his own.

A family source told TMZ that doctors are "extremely impressed" with Harris' progress. So are we.

The sea captain had been using breathing tubes to help circulate oxygen through his body, but these have now been removed and his motor skills are returning to normal.

Moreover, Harris has regained feeling in the left side of his body... and he's cursing like, well, a sailor. That's a good sign.

Harris hopes to move home as soon as possible. We'll let you know when this happens.
