Hello to All - Oh I so wished I could tell you all that Bo was doing better (since I did say no post means no news is good news, but this time we are stable) He still isn't eating very much and is extremely weak. We keep trying, so we try some more.
With that being said, we are heading up to Duke tomorrow. After all the tests ran when Bo was in the hospital they do feel like a change is necessary in Bo's treatment plan. There is a slight change in his liver with the cancer, no where near where it was in July when they discovered it, but enough to warrant a different chemo. We have all decided this might be the best anyway, since we are unsure of what is making Bo sick, maybe the Altima maybe not, but we will do whatever we can to make him feel better. I just pray and pray that Bo will find the strength to travel to Duke tomorrow so the doctor can help him feel better. When you are feeling bad I am sure that last thing you want to do is drive and get chemo...
Bo's doctors have been amazing again and checking on us and trying to make sure Bo knows they want to exhaust every option out there for him and try to discover what is causing him not to feel well, I pray we can do it soon. Chicken broth can only get you along for so long.
I will let you know if we travel tomorrow. Please make sure to tell your family how much you love them and say a quick prayer tonight for everyone's health and happiness. We will find a way through this, we are just riding the roller coaster.
Love to All
Christi, Bo and Addi

More love and Prayers from Kansas. From the Harvey clan
As always, praying for all of you from Omaha. Christi, I know you've been getting a lot of tips and tricks from many who are probably more informed than I. However, when my father was fighting and had issues keeping things down and having appetite, one thing that worked well for us to keep his nutrition up was Carnation Instant Breakfast shakes. We'd mix them up with ice cream of the same flavor and he'd sip on them. It would take him a while to finish one, but he always kept them down... and, the Carnation has 100% of the daily nutrition that you need and the ice cream adds more fat and some protein. Maybe its worth a try?
