The day has come. Bo received a call from Duke this morning at approximately 11 a.m. instructing him to come in for a potential match. We’ve been through this once before so it was much easier getting the call. After waiting the entire afternoon, the news finally came just before 6 p.m. that the donating lungs were a match and the surgery was a go. Bo was prepped and went into surgery at 7:53 p.m. this evening. From the information we have received the surgery will take 6-8 hours. The immediate family are on their way to Duke. Tracia is watching Addi at home.

If you are reading this, please say a prayer for Bo. We’ll post updates as they come in.
