How to surmise the last 9 1/2 hours...Overwhelming is the word that comes to mind (Big word so it must be Christi, Just kidding) We are back home and we have experienced our first and hopefully our last false alarm. I cannot say we are disappointed, yet, we are more just "overwhelmed" and we have realized more the reality of our situation. It doesn't feel bad to have a "dress rehearsal" done, but I could have done away with half the anxiety. At least the bags are backed, Bo knows he is loved and prayers will be prayed, and well the doctors will only accept the best for him (and others). I will let him fill you in on the details tomorrow. Thank you everyone for the support, help and prayers. We know there are so many people to turn to we appreciate and cherish you all.
Christi and Addi

Bo that stinks that you didn't get the lng txp last night but, there is a good reason something prob. didn't look right and you don't want to start off fighting rejection or something passed on by the donor, heck the whole txp is hard enough.

I have known some people to go trhough several false alarms b4 they get their lng txp, keep the faith it will happen when u least expect it to

Prayers from Fredericskburg VA - I am - I guess you could say a pen pal of Nancy Blumenthal's and I just read about your situation - there are angels everywhere and I wanted to let you know I am thinking of and praying for you and your family during this difficult time.

Bo -
Katherine and I have been keeping up with your situation through your blog and admire your determination and upbeat attitude in fighting cancer. There are not many people who will look something in the face and fight it head on. Katherine and I were praying for you the night you got the call from Duke and wishing that everything went well. I am sorry that you did not get the transplant, but I know you will get it soon. My 4 year old son, James, said a prayer for you tonight before he went to bed. He says that he talks to angels when he is asleep and was going to ask one of them to make you better. Keep up the good fight and know that a lot of people are praying for you.
