these football players.. everyone would make banners and take photos saying we're thinking of chase and we'r praying for him i see chuck long came to visit too. there was a football team here in des moines made you an honorary player. does that feel pretty cool? yeahwhat has meant the most to you guys through all of this? definitely the supporta& the support has been amazing especially through the first four days in the icu. it was really hard for kenny and i to catch even an hour of sleep. so what i would do was just pick up my phone. ya know we had a million text messages. people that i don't even know through facebook were calling out to us and praying for us and it just kind of put it at ease for us to know that we're not going through this alone itsa& pretty amazingand if chase is having bad day all we have to do is let's look at facebook. lets look at the video we just posted, and read all the nice comments people
