Television host Jay Leno suffered “serious burns” to his face and hands on November 12. On Monday, Leno was released from the hospital, continuing his healing process. Ahead of his release, the Grossman Burn Center, where he stayed, took a photo providing a status update on the actor.

He sustained his injuries when a vehicle in his Los Angeles garage caught fire. With the photo update, doctors also provided some insight into their opinion of his healing progress. Here’s how Leno is doing after suffering those burns.

Just as doctors were helping Leno, medical staff say he was helping others during his recovery. Last week, Dr. Grossman said that while still undergoing treatment himself, Leno maintained good spirits and passed around cookies for other patients, Dr. Grossman added, “We’re very happy to have him as part of our team.” In earlier stages of his stay at the burn center, Leno’s injuries were described as “serious,” but “his condition is good.”
