Hello everyone and good evening. We are all moved into our new "summer home." Addi is doing well on our little adventure. She is such an amazing strong girl. Bo had a tough work out day today. He sat in the chair for a while this morning and then Physical Therapy (PT) came by. By the time they got there, he really wanted nothing to do with them. So he "went to sleep". That is when I know Bo is in there. Tonight I got to spend some time one and one with Bo and he was Bo. Still extremely frustrated that the communication isn't there with reading his lips, but I am getting better slowly. I do have to say that he had two great nurses today as well, Jason is awesome and getting me and him to understand where we both are and Reagan, was just on the same page as him. He was more comfortable. He is slowly getting stronger, controlling his head more and wiggling toes. Small steps to this long recovery, but we are getting there.
Take care everyone and sleep tight.
Christi

Hey Bo and Christi,
Good to hear that steps are moving in the right direction. I know Addi is so happy to be with you Christi. You are the rock and her presence can help you hold it all together. Bo my heart goes out to you and I know well I don't know, but please stay focused and know that so many people love you and are Praying and Cheering for you. It is like watching the Super Bowl this year with Eli Manning victorious over the Patriots. You are and have been so victorious through all this. God is in control and when the ball snaps just give it to him......Love you,

Hi Christi,
I have been checking in on Bo's Blog several times a day to see how Bo is doing and to say my prayers for him to get stronger and be well. I just discovered today that I can leave you a message as I am doing now. I don't know how with everything you have been going thru you are able to keep us up to date on BO's recovery however it is greatly appreciated.
Our Love and prayers to you BO and Addi.

Go Bo Go!!! I have to check the blog before I go to bed every night and I am excited to hear about your progress. The movers are coming starting today, so I had better hear good news tonight on the blog. I am going to need good news during this "move". Remember it could be worse, we could have Red Dog come bark at you for your PT. ;o) We love you and we will keep checking in.
