The mother-of-five added that she and her family are optimistic that Todd will have a full recovery. "Knowing Todd, once he's cognizant, he'll probably ask docs to duct tape him up and he'll call it good," Sarah, 52, joked. "He's tough."

Bristol Palin, Todd and Sarah's oldest daughter, shared a similar sentiment on Instagram, writing: "Toughest guy I know, thank you for all the love and support."

Todd's accident occurred in Alaska while his wife was campaigning with presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, in Florida. "Todd is our rock," Sarah wrote in a prior Facebook post. "Thank you for your prayers as he recovers following a snowmachine accident last night. You know, your prayers have meant so much to our family over the years and I've not thanked you enough for providing us that shield of faith. God bless you, too!"
