Salvador Ramos’ grandmother, whom he shot in the face, is now in “good condition” a week after the incident.

Ramos is not only responsible for injuring his grandmother but also for fatally shooting 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, less than one mile from her residence.

The woman, who is 66 years old, is currently hospitalized at University Health in San Antonio. Initially, she was in serious condition before being upgraded to fair condition on Sunday and then to good condition on Tuesday, according to the hospital.

After being shot, Ramos’ grandmother was able to cross the street to a neighbor’s house and dial 911. Her husband, Rolando Reyes, told Fox News Digital the day after the shooting that his wife was conscious but could not speak and was undergoing surgery.

Three other victims from the shooting were being treated at the same hospital. A 10-year-old girl was released from the facility on Friday. The other two, a 9-year-old girl in critical condition and a 10-year-old girl in good condition, remained in the hospital as of Tuesday, May 31.

At Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, two adult victims were also reported to be in good condition as of Monday, May 30.

On Tuesday, funeral services began for the 21 victims, prompting funeral directors, embalmers, and morticians to come to Uvalde to assist the community.

One Texas-based custom casket business called SoulShine Industries designed and donated 19 caskets to families of the shooting victims.

Trey Ganem, who operates the company, visited with the victims’ families to learn their interests so that he could integrate them into unique, hand-painted designs, such as superheroes, TikTok, and dinosaurs.

To prepare the caskets, he worked long hours alongside his 25-year-old son. Several others contributed to the project, including his friends, graphic artists, and a trucking company that assisted with the transportation of the caskets.
