Hello everyone again...well today we hit another bump in the road. Bo was put back in ICU this morning to use the vent. They want to do this to rest his body. (All the sleeping this morning was the first sign that something was a little off) When they tested his blood gas his CO2 numbers were up enough to require the vent to rest his body. (CO2 is the carbon dioxide being released from your body, Bo isn't getting enough of this out)
They are hoping that with a little rest that this will correct itself in time, we will know more tomorrow morning hopefully. With that being said, please pray that his CO2 levels will lower with rest and time and this ICU stay will be short term. Bo has had a trend of doing everything twice so let's hope this corrects this problem and we will be out of there by the end of the week.
I will write as soon as I know anything
Christi, Addi and Bo

It is always frustrating when you make great progress and then you seem to go back a few steps. You have all come such a long way. I know you and Bo can dig deep for more patience with all of this. Always remember how far you have come. This too shall pass. I am praying for lower co2 levels and soon. Love to you three,

Christi and Bo,
Hang in there. Sometimes it is one step back and two steps forward. Duke seems to be keeping a close eye on Bo and what he needs. I know this is a setback but just a little one. Bo just needs time to heal and to reteach these new lungs that they are a Johnson now and they need to get with the Bo program.
We will keep sending you prayers, hugs, love, and laughter to help you though the hard time.
We love you all,
Aunt Mary and Uncle Jeff

Hey Bo - I can't imagine your frustrations. My only 2 cents is, when you feel like you can't take another minute, just stop, relax, and remember you can do this! In life, one step forward, two steps back happens sometimes, but eventually it WILL be just forward.
Lots of prayers coming your way from all of the Rosa family.

Hi Guys, from what I have read, these setbacks are very likely to happen. Keep the faith and remember how incredibly far you have come. Bo, you will be out of ICU in a few more days- hang in there.
My Love,
