Good Evening Again Everyone - Well we made it through today. First we went to physical therapy for Bo's hand. Once again we were told that Bo has a bunch of weakness in his hand with muscle deterioration and loss of range of motion. So now we visit with them a couple times a week to try and get some strength back. This is hopefully get us a referral so some place locally when we go home. Then Bo went to rehab, 6 more times to go. Then back to the clinics to meet with Dr. Crawford our oncologist. This ended up being pretty uneventful. He just said the Bo was in unknown territory and that he was going to do a bunch more research to find the best path for Bo. He would talk with our pulmonologist and come up with a game plan. Bo wants to be very proactive with his treatment. This might mean chemo without the sign of cancer to help keep it at bay. They are going to talk more and come up with a plan the 3 of them agree on...Bo, Dr. Crawford and Dr. Palmer.
So another day down and more tomorrow. Tomorrow we do PFT's (pulmonary function tests - to see how Bo's lungs are working) Then Rehab...
Love to All
Christi, Bo and Addi

Christi, Bo, and Addi,
It is amazing how fast the little ones grow. Thanks for sharing the Addi pictures. We hope she had a wonderful birthday.
Wow, it is getting close to when you will be able to leave the "summer house" and go the the "far way home." Hang it there, just 6 more treatments.
We continue to keep all of you in our prayers.
