Beaten baby home from hospital

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOA COUNTY - AL -       Tina Minor was seen doing something Friday that a week ago - she never thought she would do...hold her newborn son like a normal baby.  Her husband Jay Minor is accused of beating the infant.  "Its been rough but I'm happy that he came home from Children's Hospital Tuesday but I'm not happy about the shape he came home in.," she told ABC 33/40 while at her Mother's home on Haggler-Coaling road.
 
     Little Jerry is still fragile from having multiple broken bones.  Court documents say his father admitted to squeezing the baby and hitting him with his fist.  But, it seems Jerry is beating the odds.  "They're still worried about his brain and bones, they're going to check on that but they say it's a chance he may heal up slowly but surely."

     Minor says she's already seeing Jerry move his hands and arms.  He's even opening his eyes.  Although he's fed through a feeding tube, he cries when he's hungry.  That's something doctors believed would not happen.  Jerry's mother calls it a miracle. "It looks good that he's moving his legs and arms and move his head back and forth. The hospital thought he would never do that but a lot of prayers and everything and the God upstairs he did it."

      They're trying to get little Jerry to move his tongue so perhaps he can learn to suck a bottle and feed himself.

      Tina Minor says she's focused on her son and thinks very little of her husband, Jay who remains in jail.  "He put me through a lot. But, I want to thank investigator Toby Banks for getting to the bottom of it.,"  Minor also says she is in the process of getting a divorce from Jay Minor.
