After spending the last three months in the hospital, Jack Jablonski was finally recovered enough to leave, 5 Eyewitness News reported.
Checked from behind during a hockey game on Dec. 30, Jablonski partially tore his spinal cord.
The Jablonski family grew close with the nurses and staff at the Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, Kare 11 reported.
"It's exciting," Jablonski said. "It's obviously bittersweet, but, it's the next step, so it's good to move on."
