The conditions of a father and daughter who were the only survivors in the deadly Muhlenberg County house fire that killed nine family members have been upgraded.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center officials said Monday that 36-year-old Chad Watson and his 11-year-old daughter, Kylie, are both in stable condition.

A video was posted on the Facebook page of Calvary Baptist Church late Tuesday afternoon showing Kylie thanking everyone for their love and support. 

Hospital spokesman Craig Boerner said the two had been in critical but stable condition since they arrived on January 30 and were upgraded over the weekend.

A family member tells 14 News Chad is on schedule to be released from the hospital on Wednesday. He will then go to Vanderbilt Stallworth Rehabilitation for physical therapy.

Family members tell us Chad is also scheduled to preach and tell his story at a celebration of life event on February 23 at Felix Martin Hall in Muhlenberg County.

No word yet on when Kylie will be released from the hospital.
