I hope everyone had a good week. As you can see from the last post that Christi did, my family is really a great asset. I love Christi and Addi so much, and I hope that I do not leave them. Addi has been so sweet about Christmas and I am really just glad I am still here to see it.

Update on me: I have been hearing a weez lately when I take a deep breath to cough. Susan heard it as well when I was at Duke. What could this be? It could be the cancer blocking my airway, or I am hoping it is still the talc from the collapsed lung. To be honest, i am not sure. I am coughing a lot more....

I am very excited about Christmas and the thought of spending time with my family in NC and KS. When you are in my situation, you never know if this is the last one you will have. I try my best to have the best time and not think of it, but I do think of this all the time. I have tried to ask God to take it away, and I still think of it.

I wanted to say thank you to everyone that has given money to Addi's Cure this year. We raised more than last year, and we will be giving Duke a lot of money this year. They are amazed at what you are able to do. Yes, I said YOU. Our next Addi's Cure function will be this spring in Cornelius and will have a Jimmy Buffet theme...... SOUNDS FUN!

Your posts often make me speechles, but especially this one. You and your family are in my prayers always. Stay strong! You have an amazing spirit. The picture of you and Addi is priceless.

Hey Bo,

I spoke with Jerrold today and he mentioned your name. I also have BAC and am considering getting a transplant. I get my treatment at Stanford CC. Just wanted to drop by and say hello.

P.S. The wheezing is common as I've experienced it. Although I am not a doctor, it can be cancer blocking the airway or mucus. Some forms of BAC mucinous (they produce mucus).
