    Thanks indeed for posting, wordsworthgirl! As one of many many big fans in the world of Jeremy's skating myself, appreciate it a lot. Especially right after Team event Day 1 in Sochi was over.

    A great read, really. Jeremy is very lucky to have such a sweet mom and family. There is one full week until Mens competition begins. I sincerely hope that with support from his family (and Yuka/Jason of course), Jeremy can get rested well and enough, leave it behind, then on his feet again to compete there, and have two great skates that he can be proud of and feel satisfied with. Good luck to Jeremy in Mens individual competition at Sochi Games!

    I can't believe he was able to get up and finish, never mind skate cleanly! I think all his critics owe him an apology after that. That's toughness!

    What a dramatic way to find his courage and show the bashers wrong!

    Keep the toughness and never-give-up mindset, Jeremy. But stay healthy, 'K? You have the LP to go and to show the new you again.

    GO Jeremy go!

    After the bashing he was getting after SP in the team event (Seriously, he had to skate after Evgeni Plushenko IN RUSSIA AT THE OLYMPICS! That's a tall order for anyone), I was hoping he'd have a great skate and show everyone what he's made of. Well, he did that in a dramatic fashion! That was unbelievable. That has to be the worst type of fall and he kept going! That's determination! If he stopped, no doubt the bashers would say see we wasted a berth blah blah blah he wimped out, ignoring that he was injured and COULD NOT compete. Great to see the crowd get behind him.

    Who needs idols when we have such great role models as Jeremy and other men that showed their grits today in Saitama?
    You fall, get up and move on. I am so happy Jeremy has the skate of his international career here.

    Congratulations Jeremy. I almost cried at the end of the program when I saw how overwhelmed he looked at the reaction from the audience. Great skate and I wish you had made the podium. Beautiful, moving and well done.

    Really don´t know. But I thought so, because they linked Michael J. Fox fundation.

    Yes, I believe so. The skating show in December that he took part in was to raise money for its research.

    The Skating Lesson also tweeted this:

    Nothing but positive energy and thoughts for him and his family.

    Correct. An article promoting this year's edition of "Aspen on Ice" referred to Abbott's father as having "end-stage" Parkinson's, IIRC.

    And BTW, to promote the 2013 show, the official Michael J. Fox foundation blog or website had a long item about Aspen on Ice and about Jeremy's motivation to spearhead the event as a fundraiser for the foundation.

    Condolences to the Abbott family.
