James loves the Miami Dolphins, and a few of the players got wind of his accident and stopped by the hospital. Jenna, James's mother, posted about the event: "Skyler and I went in with them and told James the 'football dolphins' were here. 3 minutes into the visit, James fully opened his eyes! Although he has opened them on and off before, they have never been this wide. He followed his daddy for a few seconds. They called the doctor in and everyone was impressed."
