Good Evening - Today is a day where I am just proud of my family. Addi is such a sweet girl that is taking everything in stride. She hasn't given me (or Bo) any trouble with this whole situation. She talks about her friends all the time, but never complains or cries (unless we are doing our typical 2 year old I want my way - too stay in the pool all night) She is so funny....
But on the other hand today Bo walked the farthest yet, about 330 feet. They walked him this time out of ICU and into the "step down" rooms. I think that was really good for him to see his goal and to see all the other patients doing the same thing, walking and trying to get out of there. He also has had two trach trials today, one for 40 minutes and another for 1hr and 20 mins...yeah, the longest yet! I am so proud, they are going to let him rest the rest of the evening and then try for farther and longer, respectively...what a great day!

Hi Bo,
What a lucky guy you are to have such a wonderful wife. Thanks Christi for the daily updates on Bo's progress. I am so excited Bo, with the progress you are having. I think it is now more than baby steps as you get stronger and stronger each day. You are an amazing guy.
We love you

I've been lurking around on your sight since December - mostly because the words of a 56-year old mother didn't seem to be anything you could use.
I am so sorry that Bo would have to go through the last couple of months, so sorry that you and Addi would have to go through all this, so sorry that research hasn't gotten further by now...
You're all in my thoughts.
