Good Evening - Today was a day of trying to get some more sleep. Bless Bo heart, he is so obsessed with his lack of sleep it is driving him more crazy. I keep reminding him that he needs to be patient, we are still in ICU, so lets not push things to much. We have come so far and he is walking better, hopefully soon Bo will be able to walk without the stroller and use the walker then walk on his own. (Sorry if that was misleading to everyone about his walking, right now he uses a stroller under his arms so his feet push him along, next he will use a walker to help hold him up, then we will try to get some laps in with just himself walking) I have to constantly remind myself we are still in ICU and this will be a little longer to recovery.
Bo is talking a little bit better. But to explain that, Bo can only get a couple of whisper words out. He is working on getting his diaphragm stronger, so in time we will get a couple more and then maybe a sentence. He is excited to talk with everyone, but it will still be a little while longer. Much less it is impossible to get cell phone service in the hospital something to do with the machines and concrete walls.
If anyone has any questions please let me know. If I have confused you about anything, let me know and I will try to explain again. Once we can get stable enough to go to step down, I will have Bo explain the best he can also.
Take care
Christi, Addi and Bo
PS - Uncle Jeff and Aunt Mary thank you so much for the donuts!

Hang in there kids you have come so far. I know it is probably very frustrating to Bo that things are not happening fast enough for him. But you got to remember where you were. You are always in my prayers. Love, Aunt Marlene from Kansas

It is hard to be patient, things will get better, I recall a few days after my txp and not being able to sleep at all and they would not give me sleepy meds, I was high on all the other txp drugs I cried (medicine induced) b/c I was so sleep but could not sleep when I did doze it would be time for a blood draw, or vital sign reading, it will get better we all (lg txp folks) have gone through it.
