Everything is bigger in Texas, including my liver…

Good news!!!!

i received my scan results Monday. I was informed that there are no new tumors at this time (anywhere)… Which is always good to hear for obvious reasons… But also, good old Lefty Liver grew as well. As hoped, the left liver (or my Future Liver Remnant), has been growing. And growing quite well. Sometimes growth can be slow or just doesn’t take place if your liver isn’t very healthy. Well amazingly, this little liver of mine, really wants to shine.

i also pranced around the hospital, pretending I was a doctor

Apparently the amount of growth appears ( visually) to be enough to go forward with surgery to remove the right lobe completely. I’ll still come back and consult with my liver surgeon there, but it sounds like things are moving along as best they could be.

Im very lucky to have things progress as well as they have. I blame all of you. So thank you.

I have another consultation tomorrow with the colon specialist. Just to go over scans and options in the future. The facilities here in Houston are top notch. MDAnderson is quite the place, as is the entire medical campus.  I feel pretty lucky to have had the opportunity to come down here. I appreciate the support there and here during my stay. Thank you all. Everyday I eat fresh oysters from the gulf for you:

I also visited Galveston. I rode every ride and jumped off the pier twice. Jk. I also walked along the beach in the warm Gulf waters that have been threatening flesh eating bacteria thru June. Live on the edge. Sometimes by accident.

One last thing, Nikki Christ’s niece (Emily Linneman), is in need of a miracle, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.  I shared her GoFund me on my fb page if you’re interested in donating or even just wanting to read her story.  Thank you in advance.

Cheers fools!! I’ll be back Thursday afternoon.
