Talk about a long day...We got up around 6:30 to be at the hospital by 7:00. (You have to check in an hour early before your bronch) It would have been good to know that the nurses do not even show up until we waited. They were right on schedule and Bo got in at 8:00 sharp. Dr. Palmer performed his procedure and said by eyeballing it things were looking good. Nothing to surprising and thought his lungs were progressing nicely. He is a little concerned for when Bo goes home that Bo will slack on his rehab...I know you all will not let that happen. He needs to walk everywhere and get that exercise in everyday. Dr. Palmer said if he needed to he would have words with him when I say I need help pushing him along. (Someone in my corner when the going gets tough) I think Bo will do fine. He did mention that he would like to keep Bo up here for another month, but didn't think that was going to happen.
Then we came back to the hotel and got Addi. Our beloved Miss Evelyn got up at the crack of down so Addi didn't have too. We are going to miss her and her husband Joe so much. They are leaving at the first of the year to work in the Ukraine on a mission trip. All our love and prayers to them. Hopefully we can keep in touch.
Back to the hospital for the doctor follow up with Dr. Snyder. Bo is working on getting back to the basic meds and trying to loose anything "extra" I know Dr. Snyder loves when Bo negotiates...Funny note, Addi was with us on this visit and I think scared the daylights out of Dr. Snyder who is 8 months pregnant with her nonstop talking. Good thing they do not come out 3. (What's your name? Where did you get your jewels? Your husband. What's his name? What are you doing?...) Nonstop.
Then to physical therapy for Bo's hand. He now has a really cool splint to help straighten his fingers out and then we will work on strength next. We finally made it back "home" around 4:30 for a late nap and dinner. Thank you AB for the great presents (and Jenn) Adding is writing notes to all her friends on her princess paper.
Tomorrow should be slow and back home.
Love to All
Christi, Bo, and Addi
