  3. It is that time of year again. Help me in trying to raise awareness for those with Mitochondrial Disease. As most of you know my 14 year old son Ayden was diagnosed with Mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome when he was a little over 2 years old. At that point he had been searching for an answer for close to 18 months on what was going on with his body. We were told to enjoy each day and that he would not make it to 3 years old. The Dr at the Cleveland Clinic told us that he would start to lose his sight and hearing, then use of his arms and legs that his body would shut down anything not needed for survival. His organs would begin to shut down and he would go to sleep and just not wake up one day. On January 11 2010 we were given a death sentence but by GODS grace and a miracle Ayden is here and doing amazing things. We are entering a new chapter in his life and one with much uncertainty. When kids with Mitochondrial disease hit puberty and hormones take over some crazy things can happen. Many at that age end up being in wheel chairs or needed some type of assistance for mobility. I want to thank GOD and all of HSN for all the prayers over the years, and for the platform that you have allowed me to share these things. I just read something that really gave a great analogy to what people with Mitochondrial Disease go through on a daily basis. It says that it is like having your smart phone battery getting really low. Some of the apps work fine but some slow down, don't function properly or at all. The Mitochondrial of the cell is what give the cell power and these Mito warriors have issues with that. For Ayden it is usually fatigue, low muscle tone, constant body aches, and low immunity. Please help me to make more people aware Of Mitochondrial Awareness. Please feel free to take a look at https://www.umdf.org/mitochondrial-disease-awareness-week-2021/ to more about this terrible disease. This week I wear green for MY HERO, MY SON, MY MITO WARRIOR AYDEN!!!!!!!!!! Thank you and GOD BLESS
  4. Another great weekend for Indiana basketball. Great football environment, great atmosphere, scenery top notch and oh yeah Coach Wooson and staff. Close the deal coach
  5. Heck no I have a terrible team. I gotta try and get wins where I can, not seeing many in my future
  6. I do not know the individuals or much other than this just came my way from our men's prayer group wanted to share here as well to those faithful prayer warriors. A miracle is needed. We wanted to put a central place to be able to give updates and share prayer requests. I don’t ever want to deny our sweet boy the power of prayer over his life. Right now we have a pretty big need for prayer and miracle power at work in his healing. Hayes has a bleed on both sides of his brain. They are pretty severe a stage 4 on one side ( out of a total 4) and the other a stage 3. So far the white matter of the Brain ( what would determine if he has future developmental impact or not) is still really well intact, which is hopeful. Our nurse helped us know exactly what the prayer needs to be. She said be praying specifically that 1) the blood would absorb/ shrink 2) the swelling on his brain would be stable. 3)That there are no developments effects. In a lot of ways this feels like a “too big” to overcome issue, but We know we have a BIG God with big plans for this little mans life. We appreciate each person taking time to bring him to the feet of Jesus.
  7. I gave my wife 3 choices for her birthday, the IU UC game, Colts vs Rams game or whatever she wants. This weekend I will be the DD going to about a dozen wineries. Not that it is a bad time by any stretch but its not choices 1 or 2 for sure. Going to try and get her trashed at 1st winery in Nashville and trick her into tailgating in Bloomington.
  8. I hope like heck that they find their way into the student section. Relive some glory days or for the first time. Either way gonna be fun!!!!
  9. What does it take to get him to IU and not OSU??? Would be the biggest in state recruit since..... ever?? IDK

  15. Ran into a guy in Batesville prior to the first week of football. He said he was looking forward to IU this year and potential of IU UC match-up of 2 top 10 teams. Been a lifelong IU football fan. Now he has to root for UC because his grandson is a freshman player for the Bearcats
  16. Last year I started 0-3 got hot.made the playoff got to championship game was a 98 % chance to win. Needed 2 pts from a WR on Monday night football and lost. After Hill and Kamara went off no way could I lose but I did.
  17. I hate having the longest losing streak but might as well be good at something even if it's losing
