Meghan King Edmonds‘ 14-month-old son is making some serious progress since his mom revealed in early July that he’d been diagnosed with “irreversible brain damage,” taking to his feet all on his own in a new video The Real Housewives of Orange County alum shared to Instagram on Monday.

“Hart stood today for the first time! And I’m not talking for a half second, he stood for almost a whole minute!” King Edmonds, 34, captioned a photo and clip of her son showing off his skills. “Both his PT and OT were there (and this wasn’t during therapy),” she continued. “What a special and incredible moment! #gohartgo

The mom of three revealed in early July that Hart “minor Periventricular Leukomalacia on both sides of his brain” and is “at risk for being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.”

Weeks later, King Edmonds explained that Hart has been undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy. According to the Mayo Clinic, the therapy increases oxygen in the blood and is used to treat several medical conditions.

“Four times a week either Jimmy or I ‘dive’ with Hart in a hyperbaric compressed oxygen chamber (HBOT),” she captioned a photo of herself giving her son a kiss on the cheek. “After 5 dives we are already seeing progress: lifting his left leg on stairs when his right is restrained, bear crawling (perhaps trying to stand?), more willingly taking steps with assistance, and cruising from the couch to the coffee table.”
