Addy Ocheltree, 2, was rushed to Children's Medical Center Dallas, where she continues to recover. Her baby brother, Marshall, 1, has been treated and released.

In the new video, Addy is seen sitting up in a hospital bed, having a snack, after her terrifying ordeal. She's going to make a full recovery.

“You want to say hi to everybody?” her parents ask their daughter, who appears a little camera-shy. “No? They've been praying for you!”
