"His recovery has been nothing short of a miracle. He has been blessed with a wonderful medical team," said Poueu's family and his fiancée, Stephanie Anderson, in a statement to People. "Witnessing his daily progress is the most hopeful and inspirational experience. Tough days are still ahead - but, like always, he is working hard toward a full recovery. We are thankful for your continued thoughts, prayers and support."

For the first time, the 25-year old reality star issued his own statement, as well:

"Words can't express how grateful I am for all the love, support and prayers I've received in the past six weeks, all of which have been instrumental in my healing and recovery process, and in keeping my spirits up."
