Hello again - still posting...sorry. Today Bo had another day or work out, work out and work out. So pretty much he walks and then sleeps. Walks and then sleeps. Tonight Addi and I paid him a visit and let me tell you, Bo was exhausted, but Addi is so excited every time she sees him. She sings to him, dances and does everything possible to get a "big smile" and then she fusses to have Daddy talk really loud. (Bo is hesitant to wear his valve to help him talk, he is a little used to not being able to talk because of the vocal cord problem)
I do think many people have heard about Bo and his double double. Today the Director of Duke's Comprehensive Cancer Center's Assistance came by to check on Bo and see how he is doing. They are amazed with his progress and hope and pray we can go home soon. Tomorrow we are going to do a stomach test and see how his stomach is working. This is the first step in getting Bo's last procedure done. (the stomach wrap for his acid reflux) They would like to get this done before we leave the hospital so that way when we leave, we leave. Let's hope this goes well tomorrow.
Take care and I will let you know how everything goes
Christi, Addi and Bo

Keep on working, it's paying off little by little. Addi must be the best cheer leader ever.

Fight On!!
