A Quick Update

Good morning to all!  It’s currently 11:03 a.m. and the doc just spoke to us.  The surgical team is currently closing Chris up and Chris will be moving into recovery as soon as they’re done.  Dr. S. said the surgery went well and he’s happy he waited to do the surgery instead of doing it last Feb.  They removed 70% of Chris’s liver-his right lobe.  They couldn’t get all the liasons today, and will have to do a scan in 6-8 weeks to see how the liver is regenerating.  Then they will determine when his next surgery will be, possibly in 7-8 weeks.  They gave Chris a patch behind his ear to help with the terrible nausea that usually accompanies his anesthesia.  I’ll try to update again later today.  Thank you for all prayers and well wishes>  And keep ’em comin’!  Chris is going to have a long couple of days! 

Love to all!

Karen
