Well... after a LONG run around (changing hospitals AND surgeons) Bo will have the newer model 103 implanted next Wednesday. He will also be kept overnight for observation. The team that is working with him now has been very thorough and I am much more confident in the people we are working with now. Of course I still go back and forth about this decision (as I would hope anyone would, it is not something to be taken lightly) but my family and I have decided this is the right thing to do for Bo.

I have appreciated all of the guidance. There are a lot of things I would not have asked about if it weren't for you guys.  :Thanx:

Hi Karen,

Bo and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I know you had extremely difficult decisions to make in choosing this for Bo.  If his outcome is beneficial and he gets improvement you will be so relieved.  If there are any challenges, you have educated yourself well and will recognize problems and know that other tough decisions may be in your future.

We will all be looking forward to hearing from you!  We're here to celebrate and to listen.

I am thinking about Bo, you, and your family, and I wish you all great success with the VNS.  I am sure it was a decision that was difficult to make.  Please keep us updated.  It will be nice to hear if he has great success, and we are here for you in good and bad.

Hi Karen,

My prayers will be with Bo and your family next week.  I understand still going back and forth, I was doing that up until I was in the operating room!  I am glad you are comfortable with the surgeon and are getting the newest model.  Please keep us posted how Bo does through the surgery.

Hugs,
Cindy
