Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there. We certainly think our Bo is tops right now. Bo had another good day walking. He walked down the hall and I got to see the amazing progress that he has made in the past week, I couldn't be more proud. They have not been able to really try with the trach lately due to: first to him been tired from the other days and also because his pain medication have been making him extra sleepy right now. He has been in a lot of pain at night and last night they gave him enough doses that they carried over to today and he rested most of the day. They have removed 2 of his hard tubes that are there to help keep his lungs inflated, so I would think that would have to make him feel better. They are going to run a test tomorrow to check his diaphragm and make sure there isn't anything in that matter delaying him coming off the ventilator. His other numbers are looking really good...so we keep praying for Bo's continued strength and patience.
Love to all
Christi

Speaking of t-shirts... Bo, we know that you probably haven't been able to sync up to the fact that it is college world series time and that your Tar Heels have made it to Omaha, but they are here and we are cheering them on for you.

Roy Williams is in the stands and has been shown on TV so he's definitely bringing your support for the team with him as well.

We pick up a shirt for you and will have it in the mail to you as soon as we figure out the best place to send it. Personally, I think it would make a great work out shirt while you're walking the halls there recouperating!

We are all so proud of you and how hard you are working. Keep it up! Addi is going to remember what an amazing person you are for the rest of her life.

Love and hugs,

Larry and Tammy

Hey Guys,
We just got back in the country. We have continued to pray for you guys throughout our trip. We kept all the FIG folks on the trip up to date daily, since we had internet connection. Thank you for posting everything on the internet. It has really helped us know what is going on and what to specifially pray for.We had a number of people in Switzerland praying for you guys also. PRAISE GOD for the turn around!! We were really concerned. We will continue to keep you in our prayers. Please keep us posted on when Bo can receive or should I say feels like receiving visitors.

Great seeing you on Friday. I was amazed with how hard you are working and how good you looked. I know you are frustrated with the pace of play but I promise you, you are moving mountains and are my biggest inspiration. Remember our breathing lesson. I've used it many times this weekend. The family loves you and sends you best wishes. Mia is looking forward to a visit to the lake this fall. Listen to those lovely nurses and keep up the hard work. Smile!
Love Ya Man!
