Hello to All - Just a quick update. We did make it up to Duke yesterday, barely. It was decided Bo wasn't feeling well enough to start any new chemo. So our plan for attack right now is to focus on his nausea and strength. They would like a local nurse to visit him at the house more frequently and to keep better tabs on him. Hopefully this will start soon, the sooner she comes the better we can adjust his meds or change them to help him feel better and actually keep some food in his system. Depending on how quickly we can handle this, then we go from there.
Many of you ask how you can help. Just be there for Bo. It is quite lonely feeling sick all the time. He cannot answer his phone all the time, but he does a great job responding back to emails. I know he would love to hear from everyone to help pass the time until he feels better. Also mark your calendars for February 27, 2010 for another year of Beating the Odds at Raceworld USA in Cornelius, NC. We are looking for silent auction items, sponsors and helpers to sell tickets!
Love to All
Christi, Bo and Addi

Bo you are definitely in our prayers and on our minds here in Kansas. I do hope they find the answer to your nausea, then the weight and strength well come back. I do hope the nurse starts coming to see you real soon, sort of a security blanket knowing someone is watching and monitoring you each day.
God love you kids.

Wow. I found your blog through a search of "lung transplant and lake norman area". I am also from the Lake Norman area, had a double lung transplant at Duke 8 years ago (Doc Palmer is my doc too), and had a kidney transplant at Duke last year.

Bo, Christi and Addi, I want you all to know that I am praying for all of you. I do hope that Bo is well enough to receive his next round of chemo soon. I will be checking for updates for sure on your blog. God bless you all.

Bo, I never stop thinking of you and praying for your improved health. Having a local nurse should really help you on a day-to-day basis.
