Hello everyone. It’s Brian Williams posting tonight. As many of you know, Bo is up at Duke this week undergoing eligibility tests for a lung transplant. He apologizes for not being able to post to the blog at the moment. He and Christi are having internet problems at their temporary apartment. So tonight’s post is my honor.

Today was day one of testing along with a Chemo treatment. And, as all of you can imagine Bo is charging through the tests as hard as he can. He did say that they are not easy and some are very uncomfortable. But, you all know Bo and he is taking it all in stride. In fact, his humor still shines through…..he told me that one test this week is a cardio catheterization. Basically, they will run a catheter through a vein in the leg up to the heart. He said “So it says in the literature to pack a bag because you might have to be admitted. I think that’s code for ‘This might hurt.’”

Bo promises to post an update as soon as the internet line is repaired at the temporary apartment. In the meantime, your prayers are extremely important this week!!! Stay tuned for more.
