Continued prayers...

This evening Jacoby was practicing her double back dismount off the high bar into the pit.  She opened prematurely, stating she "got lost", before her 2nd flip was complete and landed on her neck on an 8 inch mat.  The paramedics were called and she was taken to St. Josephs Hospital in Tacoma where a CAT scan showed her C4 vertebrae had dislocated sitting slightly in front of her C5. She is paralyzed from the mid chest down.  She was taken to Harborview for surgery.  They will know more in the next 2-3 days.     

Jacoby and her family have shown incredible strength during this most difficult time.  Jacoby didn't shed even one tear and was more concerned about her teammates crying than she was for herself.  The family will need our help and support in the coming days, weeks and months.   The gym will be organizing meals for the family beginning tomorrow, please see the front desk to sign up.

Feel free to send get well messages to Jacoby and her family on this blog.  Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers. 


They have asked that there be no visitors at this time.  

The blog will be updated as more information is available.

  37. Jentzen Franklin said, "What a marvelous image! When you pray, you are filling the prayer bowls of heaven. In God's perfect timing, your prayers are mixed with the fire of God (His power) and cast back down to earth to change your situation... Even if you don't feel like anything is happening in the natural world, when you pray, you are filling the prayer bowls in the spirit realm. When they are full, they will tilt and pour out answers to your prayers!"
