(For those just catching up, I put together a Cancer Timeline a couple of weeks ago.)
After various bureaucratic difficulties, the date for the operation on my liver has been confirmed for Friday 21st December at 2pm. I go in to the Cromwell Hospital, south-west London, on Friday morning. The expected recovery time is 7-10 days so I hope to be out in time for New Year.
I’m still not certain exactly what they are removing – could be anywhere between 1/8th and 1/2 of my liver. I still haven’t had a chance to chat with my surgeon. However, God willing, the rest should take over the job both in size and function within a few months.
Once I’m done, all I’ll need is an operation to the left front of my body and I’ll be able to take my shirt off and say “Hey, kids, God made me in two halves” :-)
