    From what I was told, between the stroke and the loss of blood to one of the parts of his brain, they told us that he wont be able to talk/understand us or maybe more as I said earlier on the last page.

    This is horrible.

    I'll still try to update this as much as possible, I came home to get some sleep, but when I'm there I have my iPhone so I usually tell you guys whats happening, as it's happening.

    If he does he wont be the same..
    This is what ive been informed upon.
    Im scared but praying for him.
    He needs to come back to us.

    Hello be-mag, this is James's Mom and Dad. We want to first of all thank youngblood/Ethan for letting us use his account to post our thanks. We want to thank all of you for some really great stories about James, for sharing your condolences with us, and for being so great over the years to him; he loved be-mag and was always online talking to so many of you. He loved the industry, encouraged the future generations of rollerbladers, and when he made friends ,it was for life.
    We have so many to thank, I'm afraid to start cause I know i'll miss some, so I'll just list a couple of the earliest ones; first of all Jon Elliot, who inspired and encouraged James, & started him on his love of skating. Brian Shima, & all the California pros he met over the years who treated him so good, all the others across the country and over seas as well. You guys have earned your place in heaven.
    He's got so many friends in the industry who helped us through this terrible time; Ben Schwab, Ethan, Stefan Brandow, the list could go on and on....all the beautiful friends he had who lived with us at Akron general Hospital, and prayed for a better outcome than we got. He lived more in 24 1/2 years than most do in 50, And thank God for that.
    We couldn't ask for a better son, and I know he was also a good friend to many, it's helped us get through this so far.
    We'd like to send him out in the manner he deserved and the style he loved. You can read his obit at www.geibfuneral.com for arrangements this Thursday and Friday, and we welcome any and all of you who can attend, as James loved a good party. Let's celebrate his life, and remember one of his favorite sayings: it's all good.....see you on the other side James. With love, Rod And Debra Short, New Philadelphia, Ohio[/url]

                                    This had me fucking LOLIN, but seriously I don't pray but will definitely hope the best for him.

                                    Has there been any new developments?

                                      I've been pretty negative about the rollerblading community lately, but to see so many people have James in their thoughts and prayers means a lot.


                                      He's in Akron, I'm not sure what hospital.
                                      Everyone there has terrible cell service so the minute they hear anything they've been calling me immediately.
                                      The last I heard is what I told Taylor above. I rarely get on here but if I hear anything I'll make sure to update as many people as possible.

                                          He's probably at SUMA Hospital....

                                          James is one of the nicest dudes ever I hope he's ok..Lol I know this sounds corny but Ohio bladers are fucking tough as nails... Jimmy Spetz got stabbed a whole bunch a while back..Ron Copeland had to get like 20 something staples in his head and now JAmes.. I'm hoping for the best!

                                          Good luck JAMES!

                                              He only has text messaging on it.
                                              On an Ohio note, I skated with Ron Copeland tonight and he's skating hard as ever, knee brace and all, just in a different way. It's good to seem him getting out again and still killing it.

                                              James recently got in a fight with a skin head nazi at some protest in his town and took the mother fucker down with one head butt. I have faith in him. He always gets really down about things sometimes, but he always comes back to being the happiest dude I know.

                                                                      They said the first prognosis is that he's going to have to stay in the hospital for WEEKS. Not just a couple weeks, weeks on end for rehabilitation. The doctors said they saw his arms moving, but the rest of his body hasn't moved. They also said he tried to wake himself up but couldn't, so that means he's fighting.

                                                                      It could be a lot worst, but this still is absolutely terrible. It's looking ok for him in the long run, but everything is still kind of up in the air
