Baby's health improving after being shaken by caregiver (WCCU)

A local mother said her son continues to improve after police said he was shaken by his daycare provider.

Lailan’s mom sent Fox Illinois a video from the hospital, saying her son is more awake and has been eating through a feeding tube.

The baby was diagnosed with a brain bleed and seizures. Doctors said there is still a long road ahead.

"He's breathing and moving and smiling and doing what a normal baby should be doing,” mother Jessica Adams said. “And he is my warrior and he'll prove everyone wrong."

The accused caregiver, Michelle Reed, was charged with a single count of aggravated battery of a child.

If convicted, the States Attorney said she could face up to 30 years in prison.
