MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There are some promising signs for paralyzed high school hockey player Jack Jablonski.

His family updated his Caring Bridge website Thursday night, and despite ups and downs, they said Jack is doing some amazing things.

During therapy this week, Jack was able to raise his right arm and feed himself.

On Thursday, he was able to sit up by himself and use his arms to balance and hold himself in place.

A day before that, he sat up for seven hours — much longer than previous weeks.

His family posted that they are so proud of his determination and positive attitude.

Jack was paralyzed by a hit from behind while playing hockey in December. He plays for Benilde-St. Margaret.
