COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Jack Enright, the Chapin high lacrosse player who was injured during a lacrosse game in March is making great progress and is expected to come home in a couple of weeks.
"Oh Wow, look what Jack just did!" Jack's mom Ann posted on Facebook Thursday. "This took 20 tries, but he got it! What a miracle! He is working so hard!"
Ann tells WIS it was great to hug him standing up.
"It was great to hug him standing up for the first time in almost 4 months when he did it again," Ann said.
Ann tells WIS Jack will graduate from the Shepard Center in Atlanta on July 17 and will move back home.
"Every day is just one day at a time," Enright said in May. "Just wondering what I'm gonna get back each day, so it's exciting, you know? I couldn't be luckier to live where I live. The community is just amazing."
Enright, a junior at Chapin High School, broke his neck in a game against Lexington High School and underwent surgery to repair part of his spinal column.
