Jack Jablonski

I started to write about 2011 and what a difficult year it was for me when I read about Jack Jablonski and felt like a complete whiner.

On December 30, 2011, Jack Jablonski was injured by a hit during a hockey game and is now paralyzed.  There was great news today when Jack moved his arms!  According to his mother, the first thing he said when his arms moved was "when can I strap up my skates?"  This kid sounds like someone I'd like to know personally, and although I don't, I am praying for him and wish nothing but the best for him and his family.  I will continue to follow his story, and hope that he is able to defy all odds and make a full recovery. 

If you would like to follow Jack "Jabs" Jablonski's story, you can go to or his Caring Bridge website at

Jack, you are in my thoughts, and I will send out all the positive energy I can muster that you are once again able to strap up those skates!
