Alright - I have a confession to make, most of you already know - WE ARE BACK HOME! Aside from waiting on the tests for CMV, the doctor decided we could wait and handle at home. It didn't hurt that Addi walked up to Dr. Snyder and said, "Can Daddy go to the far, far away house with us now?" Dr. Snyder told her, "I think it is time for Daddy to go home with you."
We wanted to surprise whomever we could at the office and mission accomplished. And yes you read that right, Bo went and put a couple hours in at the office already. I did warn him the Dr. Palmer's worries were right about him though. He is afraid that Bo will thrust himself back into work and miss out on the crucial working out. So if anyone is going walking, biking (must be stationary) or weight lifting, take Bo. He does start rehab in Charlotte on Tuesday, so that will help. Crazy to think that Monday will be 5 months for us and this "adventure" (not sure if that is the right word) but I would do it again if it means that we are all home together.
Sorry - the phone just rang and Bo's tests for CMV came back negative! Yeah...so we go up in two weeks and hopefully Bo's breathing will be better again. We just have to keep a close eye on him, as I am sure you all will do anyway.
Thank you everyone for you love, support and prayers. I get asked all the time how did you handle this? It seems like a silly question to me because I think most people first would have probably handled it better, but second - how could I not make it through each day when I have everyone of you praying for us, lifting us up and carrying us through. I truly believe God exists and it is shown through each a everyone of our friends and family that were there for us. Our angels - with the biggest being Addi of course. I cannot wait for her to grow up, she is going to be a force to reckon with. (Alright - she can go a little slow with the growing up)
Love to All and we hope to see you soon
Christi, Bo and Addi
PS - Please do not feel bad if Bo doesn't hug...germs and the winter season.

It was such a nice surprise to see Bo in the office today-I definitely did a double take and then got a little teary eyed. Good tears though! Christy you have handled everything with such grace and strength, you really are an inspiration to us all. We're all glad you're back :)

Welcome home!!! I know you guys are just thrilled to be back! I told Justin that they should have a schedule of who is going to walk with Bo for 20 minutes every hour to keep him exercising! So glad the test came back negative! You guys have truly been an ispiration to us all over the past 5 months...hard to believe it's been that long! We will continue to pray for his breathing to get stronger and pray that you get to relax just a little and let other people do some things for you now! We love you!
