Jeremy Renner is continuing his recovery process after a scary New Year’s Day snowplow accident on his property in Reno, Nevada.

On Friday, Renner, 52, posted from his hospital bed via his Instagram Story, sharing a video of himself being taken into a room by a nurse for a medical scan. “I wish you all a very special night,” he wrote over the clip.

A source close to Renner told PEOPLE earlier this week that while the actor is on the mend, he faces “a long road to recovery.”

“Jeremy is making positive progress,” continued the source, echoing a sentiment from Renner’s sister Kym, who also told PEOPLE that The Avengers star was “crushing all progress goals.”

The actor has been hospitalized since Jan. 1, when he was airlifted to a local medical center. He suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries,” according to a statement from his rep, and underwent emergency surgery the next day.

Since then, fans and famous friends alike — including Evangeline Lilly, Hailee Steinfeld and Chris Hemsworth — have all wished the actor well in his recovery, with Lilly, 43, writing on Instagram that Renner has “always been one of the most grounded and real people I ever met in Hollywood.”
