Hi Teresa,
You can get the return value from the boxplot function and then 
substitute the values you want into the $stats component. Then pass that 
to the bxp function. See the help pages for boxplot and bxp.

Another option is to use the box.heresy function in the plotrix package, 
as that function does not assume that the box will be defined by the 
median and (approximate) quartiles.
