Sorry for the delay, computer issues this morning. I have only seen Bo for a second but he looked good. He was looking around and trying to focus on the TV. Today the goals are to move Bo's "Swan" line, where is is getting his antibiotics into a "pic" line. Once this is moved he will be able to start trying to get up. We also need his need for the ventilator to decrease. They have lowered the amount of assistance he is getting, but we still have a long road to go. Small steps...tomorrow they will put in his GJ tube in his stomach and he can start getting some nourishment, that will help him heal faster.
We have yet to get results for labs, those should come in "Duke" time around 12:00. We are waiting to see him again so I will post more later.
I did speak with the doctor about the fluid in his lungs that they attempted to remove last night and they feel like that is starting to look better, so small steps in the right direction.

Christi,

Any chance of a combination TV/DVD player with some good man flick movies to keep Bo occupied while in recovery?

If TV/ DVD does not work I can always tape myself and post on Youtube doing Carl from Caddy shack ( Bill Murray ) I do a mean impression of him....although it would have to be a bald, skinny Carl...with a goatee ; 0

Bo,
Like my statistics professors used to tell me...time to plug and chug baby! Keep it up!!
