Hello to All - Today was fairly uneventful. More fluids, more tests and tonight they took Bo for a Brain MRI. Bo spent most of the day with his sister Caroline and trying to keep the doctors and nurses from coming in so he can get some rest. They want to run their tests, figure out what the problem is and kick him out, he just wants to feel better without being poked 500 meet in the middle, is that possible?
We will get some results hopefully tomorrow and maybe find a solution. Please keep praying that Bo will find a way to keep some food in his stomach and that nothing new or old shows up on the Brain MRI.
Love to All
Christi, Bo and Addi
See I told you it isn't good when we post frequently...

Hello again - so quickly I know. Well today didn't go as uneventful as we wanted. Bo was admitted into the hospital today to hopefully just treat dehydration and nausea. They immediately hooked him up to an IV at the clinics and then moved him to the hospital. They are only expecting him to be there for a couple days. They just really want to help him get over this hump of not feeling good.
With that being said, they couldn't get an IV in him yesterday to run the CT with contrast, they just performed a CT. From what they can tell, they do not feel that the cancer has changed. Once they pump him up with fluids, they will try to run the test again with contrast and make sure. They are also going to run a Brain MRI and check the infamous "spots" on his brain.
We all are hoping and pushing towards that Bo just picked up with flu and hasn't been able to overcome it on his own. So let's keep praying for that and not anything any more exciting. I guess it is all in perspective when you are praying for a flu bug...
Love to All
Christi, Bo and Addi

Hello to All - Christi here - Bo and I made a pack that we would update once a week, even if we have nothing to say, which for anyone that knows us, having nothing to say really never happens.
Today we head up to Duke for the infamous scans. (We meet with Dr. Crawford first thing tomorrow morning for the results - BIG Prayers tonight please) With that being said, I am nervous. Bo has been under the weather for a week now. He hasn't been able to keep anything down and that makes me nervous, because with cancer, losing weight is never a good option. It is possible, Bo got one of the many types of "flu" going around, but it is hard not to "go there" whenever he is feeling bad. So I am heading off the doctors and sending an email up ahead of time to let them know we are having stomach issues and we are not leaving until we find out what to do. Or at least get some medicine to help for the time being. So I worry, I am beginning to get more wrinkles than I can count!
Addi and I have been doing well staying away from the flu. The poor girl had her 4 year old check up last week and that made her out of sorts, but she is better and ready to trick or treat. I promise pictures of that soon.
Love to all and we should update later this week with the results.
Christi, Bo and Addi

Just an FYI - This is from Bo!

I am really sorry to everyone that it has taken us so long to update the blog, plus the fact that Christi is always doing it and I have been silent. It was a real tough road back for me from the transplant. I went through a "foggy" period on a lot of drugs, and then there was the reinsertion part of getting back to work and life. I feel like I missed about a year and a half of stuff!

Christi, and I love her, has done a great job in keeping you guys up to date. As you know, I am having to do chemo again and it is really making me sick. However it is working so I can not complain too much. Work is really going well again, and I am even back traveling some with the next trip to Arizona coming up Monday.

Addi's Cure ( is doing well. Any help there is always appreciated.

The best thing I can say is that I am really trying to live life and make the most of the time I have left, however long that is. Addi and Christi are the most important things in the world to me, and it is imperative that I am with them. I also want to see all my friends and business associates too, so it is a hard juggling match. If I have not seen you lately, come see me!

Don't forget to hit me up on facebook as well. Bo Johnson is the name.

Thank you for all the support and prayers, they really work!
