Good Afternoon - Well we had another busy day today...it is crazy to believe that a little over a week ago I was writing how Bo could turn his head a little bit. Well today he walked 750 feet! He truly was amazing and I got to show him off to all my "friends" in the waiting room. They were all cheering him on, he wasn't quite sure why (I obviously talk too much) He is really making strides physically. PT really believes that when Bo gets physically stronger he will be able to come off the vent. Bo did come off today two times for 25 minutes each time. That is all they wanted to do for today, so he did it. Such progress!

This is a good time to remember how far you have already come and that this is just temporary. We are very proud of all three of you.

So glad to hear of the tremendous progress in just the past few days. Walking 750 feet is awesome! Just think a month from now where you will be? We are thrilled to read such positive comments in your Blog each day - I check in most every day. I will be with Brian in Chicago this evening and very anxious to see him and spend time. Give Bo my best and keep up your strength and spirits as well Christi - you are doing great work to bring your husband back to all of us. Jeanne
