Hello everyone, Christi here. Sorry this is the first chance I have had to post on our results from yesterday. Yesterday was interesting to say the least, we certainly had mixed feelings. Bo was anxious for a reason. We found out he has another collapsed lung, but this time more severe than last and he has been admitted into the hospital with a tube put into his side to help inflate his lung again. This is in the same area it was previously, so we are going to try and figure out if this will be reoccurring or what is causing this to happen. On the other side, from the inflated lung it appears that the cancer is stable still. So great news, but it is hard to tell because his lung other lung is partially collapsed. He is in good spirits, a little drugged up - actually a lot. But the nurses insist that having a tube in your side is extremely painful with all the nerve endings protecting those vital organs, so he isn't just enjoying life. They think he might have to stay throughout the weekend depending on how fast his body heals itself. The longer the lung with deflated, the longer it takes to inflate. I do have to say the doctors were shocked that Bo was walking around and golfing with his lung like this, but we all know he is a stud. I will certainly pass his well wishes along and please keep praying for a full and quick recovery.
Take care and I will post more later
Christi and Addi

Dear Christi,

Please know that you, Addi, and Bo are always in my thoughts. I know Bo will pull thru this too and I hope he gets out of the hospital soon.
