However, he still had a procedure planned for Monday afternoon.

It's been a tough road for Woodward since he was hospitalized last month for a pain in his arm. Doctors had only given him a five percent chance of survival.

Since then, he's overcome the odds, but lost a hand and all 10 toes in the process.
