Good Evening - Today was a busy and eventful day for all. Today I took Addi to her "best friend" birthday party, Patterson. Now that Patterson is 3, Addi knows she is next, except she thinks next means tomorrow. We had a great time at Dan Nichols Park in Salisbury with all our friends. We apologize for leaving so early, but we had to get back to see Daddy. Happy Early Birthday Patterson and it was great to see everyone.
While we were away Daddy had an extremely busy day, they made Daddy walk. He walked around the ICU some with the help of Tristin and Chuck. Amazing! Considering last Friday Bo couldn't hold his head up, now he is walking. We continue to work on not using the vent, all in time. Bo is doing such an amazing job, I just wish he knew how great. Right now they are not really allowing any visitors, so I apologize for anyone that wants to see him, we cannot even see him. They really want to concentrate on getting him moving and working on the vent, so we wait. I will wait all day in the waiting room for my 5 minutes and the wonderful progress we are making.
Thanks to all
Christi

Great job Bo you are a strong man and just think where you will be this time next week. Keep taking these baby steps, they get you better and better each day and then it will become one big step in going home. Keep working hard and we will continue to pray for you and your family.

Hi Bo,
Happy Father's Day. I have been talking about you to all of my clients this week. That you had a double lung transplant and how hard you are working to get well. I have been telling them how important it is to consider being an organ donor. Many already are. I can't wait to see you in person and give you a giant hug. Be well my friend.

Christi and Bo,
This is great news. We are so excited to think Bo is walking around. He is making great "baby steps". These are actually adding up to pretty big steps!
Happy Father's Day, Bo. I know Addi is very proud of how hard her Daddy is working to get better. It won't be long till you'll be walking with Addi to the park.
Take care and know our love and prayers are with all of you.
Love,
Aunt Mary and Uncle Jeff

Happy Father's Day Bo, We are so glad to hear how well you are doing. I know you are not one for patience especially with yourself. You are so used to setting a goal for yourself and attaining it in record time. You are making such great progress and when you look back on all this you will realize that you really did this in leaps and bounds as well. Keep working hard things will come together!!
