Good Evening Everyone. Bo had a nice and semi quiet evening on step down. Sleep at last! He didn't really feel that great today. They found that they have keep Bo a little too "dry" They really try to keep fluids out of Bo's lungs, so they give him medicine to help keep him "dry" Well if it isn't one things it is another and now Bo needs fluids to help him out. A very smart man told me to ride the waves, not to get to upset with the downward movements and stay a little guarded with with the highs. So they keep watching his CO2 levels with all this going on and hopefully we can stay in step-down.
Please pray for Bo's levels to even out and for his CO2 levels to stay within a safe range...out of ICU.
Take care
Christi, Bo and Addi

Christie and Bo,

I am so glad that Bo has made it back to step down and I am sure that he will continue to make forward progress! I want to thank you again for keeping us updated on the blog as it means a lot to a bunch of people. Bo has inspired so many people and his situation is a constant reminder of what truly matters in life. I am honored to be Bo's brother in law and I can not wait for him to get back to Charlotte so that he can harrass me at work and kick my butt on the golf course! :) Tell him the Panthers season starts in a month and we want you guys to join us at the tailgating/games! Caroline and I miss you and we love you; can't wait to see you soon!

Mike

Christi,

Tell Bo that Bill Cortez in NM called to say ask about him and I directed him to the blog. He just had cancer surgery as well. He and his wife send their love and prayers.

Hang in there. Eyes on the prize.
