Tuesday, June 20th

Today was a workday like all of the rest. We were pretty busy and it was a good day. I have not really been sleeping all that well, however, it has not really affected me too much. I rode the bike again today and went another 8 miles. Every night I get so excited after the bike ride so I get in the Tahoe and see the actual mileage. Where I ride is through my neighborhood and it is pretty hilly. It is a fun ride. Tonight for dinner, Christi made atlantic cod and squash and zucchini casserole. It was really good. Tomorrow, I have to get up at 5:00 am to head to Duke for a check up and a meeting with Susan Blackwell. I am sure that she is just going to make sure that I am doing ok after the chemo last Thursday.

Bo,
You are not struggling with cancer. Cancer is struggling with you. It does not want you ride. In fact, it hates it when you ride b/c it knows that it can't hang. Cancer is a doughnut eater. You are sprouts and free range. You are the "Big Ring". Cancer can't hang with the "Big Ring". It picked a fight with the wrong guy and it has no idea that you are about to stomp a mudhole in it's punk a$$.

Bo,

I did not have the pleasure to spend time with you while in Cornelius last year, but I hear you are a true "scrapper". Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. You are a survivor and will kick this.

Bo,
Thank you for taking the time to share your journey with so many of us who care so much about you. Although I only spent a week with you at Grad school this past April, I learned a lot about you. I know you will fight head on with cancer and it seems that you are doing all the right things physically and mentally. As you know, my son, Rocco who is 9 years old, fought for his life for 9 months and won the battle. You are in my prayers and my son has added you to his prayer list also. Please keep us informed on your progress.Feel free to contact me ANYTIME if you would like.
God Bless You,
Rocco Fiorentino

Dear Bo,
I just learned about this from your Mom and read every word you posted today. I am grateful that you are keeping all of us, who care so much for you, informed. You have always been a team player and have always been a team leader. You are on a new team, the most important team of your life consisting of the DR's and nurses who are assisting in your fight. The strongest member of that team is YOU, Bo. Keep up your positive attitude, eating and exercising. I know your strength! Remember, you still owe me a lunch and I plan to collect in the far future and we will eat the healthiest lunch ever. I am sending all good wishes and thoughts and praying. I have always thought the world of you.
Love,
Kay Falandys
