(BOSTON) — Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s condition was upgraded Tuesday to fair.

Tsarnaev, who has wounds in his head, neck, legs and a hand, had been listed in serious condition and officials initially feared he might not live to explain why he and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev allegedly bombed the race.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick even said over the weekend that authorities “hope he survives, because we have a million questions.”

Tuesday morning doctors at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center upgraded the suspected bomber’s condition to fair. The improvement comes as the 19-year-old has started to provide investigators with his version of the events that led to the deadly Boston Marathon bomb attacks.
