    When you're down and troubled
    and you need a helping hand
    and nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
    Close your eyes and think of me
    and soon I will be there
    to brighten up even your darkest nights.

    You just call out my name,
    and you know whereever I am
    I'll come running, oh yeah baby
    to see you again.
    Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
    all you have to do is call
    and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    You've got a friend.

    If the sky above you
    should turn dark and full of clouds
    and that old north wind should begin to blow
    Keep your head together and call my name out loud
    and soon I will be knocking upon your door.
    You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
    I'll come running to see you again.
    Winter, spring, summer or fall
    all you got to do is call
    and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
    People can be so cold.
    They'll hurt you and desert you.
    Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
    Oh yeah, but don't you let them.

    You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
    I'll come running to see you again.
    Oh babe, don't you know that,
    Winter spring summer or fall,
    Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
    Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.
    You've got a friend.
    You've got a friend.
    Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
    Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
    You've got a friend.

    -- Carol King

    Every single person on this board will come running for you, darling boy.

    haligator, I believe he was Buddhist.

    From all perspectives, a beautiful man with a beautiful heart who lost his life, but I'm sure with haligator's stunningly moving Buddhist prayer, will be called to our Aiden's bedside as a guardian angel.

    Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
    And I say it's all right

    Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
    Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
    Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
    And I say it's all right

    Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
    Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
    Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
    And I say it's all right

    Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

    Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
    Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
    Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
    And I say it's all right
    It's all right

    For Lisa and Joey, all of us will "carry that weight" for you while "golden slumbers fill your eyes and smiles awake you when you rise."

    My husband and I are organ donors and have made clear our wishes to one another.

    Grit your teeth (or gums) and hang in there Aiden!

    ...There can be miracles
    When you believe
    Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill.
    Who knows what miracles you can achieve
    When you believe somehow you will
    You will when you believe!

    I was working at the barn today, and saw the lyrics to this song in a frame on the wall (hadn't seen it before). How appropriate! The song has been stuck in my head all day.

    I BELIEVE in miracles! I believe in God's love and mercy! I believe in the power of prayer! I believe in Aiden's strength!

    Hang in there, Aiden! Kick-start that liver! Keep fighting! We love you!!!

    So glad to hear something positive! Keep trying little guy...we all love you. Aiden is everybody's child now. No little boy anywhere has a bigger and more loving family I don't think.

    I too am an organ donor and have been for many years. They can cut me up and take everything they need when I'm gone, cremate what's left and scatter the rest over a bed of roses. Those are my wishes and my family knows this. Sad that you have to think of that ahead of time but at least when you are gone you can still help others.

    Bless the family of the little boy who died for giving the gift of life.

    There have been so many wonderful lyrics posted here. I would like to make some compilation CDs for Aiden and the Hawks. Please send me ideas. We could so a few of different themes:

    Baby CD (fun): Three Little Birds (Marley), etc.
    Baby (lullaby): Golden Slumbers, etc.
    Horsie songs
    Love thoughts: Sweet Baby James, I Will
    Friends: You've Got a Friend

    Email me so we won't clutter up the board!

    Just thought I would share this:

    I brought the girls up late last night. I am in northern CT, and it was pretty frosty cold by then. I fed dinner, and shut everything down. When I was standing in the barn doorway, I looked up at the sky (which is a nightly ritual for me-on a good night, you can see the milky way). Anyway, it was especially clear and cold last night, and you could see ALL the constellations shining bright. The only sound you could hear were the girls munching their grain. The air smelled like snow, and the barn smelled like fresh hay. It seemed appropriate, so I said a little prayer for Aiden.

    I immediately saw not one, but TWO shooting stars.
    [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]. They were in different parts of the sky-but big and bright, and in a flash they were gone.

    There isn't a point to this story really, except to say that I think God is listening.........

    My grandmother passed away this past summer and boy I hope she's listening now. What made her so special was her ability to pray. I should preface this by saying that she was not always a religous person. When my father was a child, she would drop him and his brother off for Sunday school and she and my grandfather would go to the local coffee shop to smoke and read the paper. Well one Sunday my uncle asked her why they always went to church but she never did. So it began..from then on she went to church every Sunday for 50 years.

    Now going to church is one thing, but she was not only attending, she was involved in EVERYTHING. Especially her prayer group and boy did she have a list. Every night she prayed for 2-3 hours, usually on her knees, until it wasn't possible, and I would swear she had God sitting there next to her. If you made the list you were probably in need of a little leg up from the heavens. She often prayed for mothers, sick friends, and guidance, but never for herself. However, if you one of the people who happened to get your name written not one her paper, but by a specific passage in her Bible, buddy, you had major issues. (My sisters name was in there several times but we won't get into that.) I would always tell her that when she got to heaven to put a good word in for me, cause if she couldn't get me in, no one could.

    I guess my point is through her prayer I saw miracles happen. If she were here now I would call her and ask her to pray especially hard for Aiden. She was a rare human being and an asset to a family in need of all the prayers we could get. So grandma if you're out there could you please stay extra close to this precious baby. Let God know that he is loved and has brought so many people together (in a world that's not always loving and kind). We are not asking a thing for ourselves, but for a family desperate to keep their little boy here with them. Let God know we are all praying harder than ever and we're not giving up. Although life may be God's gift alone...we aren't ready to let go of this very special little boy.

    God Bless All of You this Holiday Season

    My thoughts are with Aiden, and I hope that all the updates from here on out are positive ones! That would certainly be the greatest gift we could all hope for this holiday.

    A few weeks ago, I had a conversation with two of my friends about organ donation. All three of us are marked on our licenses as donors, and my family is well aware that should anything happen to me, any and all usable parts are welcome to be gifted to others [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Paraphrased:

    Do not fear for I am with you
    Do not anxiously look about you
    For I am your God
    I will strenthen you
    Surely I will help you
    Surely I will uphold you with my Righteous Right Hand

    Isaiah 41:10

    Aiden, I am praying that one day soon you will be in your own bedroom with your mommy and daddy at your side. I pray that you will have many days of laughter and many nights of gazing at the stars. I look forward to "watching" you grow up. May God send his angels to watch over you, tonight and always.

    Stegall- your story gave me goosebumps.

    Lisa- I so worry about you and hubba during this difficult time. I hope your able to snatch a nap or two, and eat healthy meals, which probably goes against every parenting instinct you have right now to be near Aiden. I honestly can't fathom how your days and nights must be one huge blur since the weekend. Hugs to you girl and hugs to your fine son who is the champion of our hearts and prayers right now.
