Rachel Zoe is still having trouble processing the stunning turn of events that her family has endured over the past handful of days.

The fashion designer updated her fans on Tuesday, Dec. 22 by sharing to Instagram that she and husband Rodger Berman are relieved to have 9-year-old son Skyler back to his usual playful self, two days after he fell 40 feet from a ski lift

"And just like that after experiencing an actual miracle..#Sky is almost [100 emoji] percent back to himself after falling 40 feet from a ski-lift less than 48 hours ago," she posted. "I cannot yet retell the story as it really happened but @rbermanus and I will heal our pain with time knowing that Sky is ok and stronger than ever. I don't typically share traumatic moments with my community, but the love we felt from so many of you was overwhelming and truly helped heal us all."

Rachel's post included a video of her son appearing to be in good spirits as he demonstrated an acrobatic somersault move on his family's couch. She wrote that her son wanted her to post the video "because he felt bad so many people were so worried about him."

Sky said in the precious footage, "I am doing pretty well. I could walk, I could run, and I could go upside-down! But besides that, my neck is a little sore, but I'm doing pretty well. I'm doing pretty good. Thank you, guys, for looking out for me!"

During her prior post on Dec. 21, Rachel explained that she and Rodger, who are also parents to 7-year-old son Kaius, were not yet ready to share the full details of the traumatic incident. But she wrote that the accident could have been prevented had the ski lift been stopped sooner, and she credited some quick-thinking ski patrol workers with helping to soften his fall.

"needless to say by a miracle and the Ski patrol heroes who quickly put a mat under where they thought he would fall ultimately saved his life or from what could have happened," she said.
