Harv and I are going to Seattle early tomorrow morning so he can have a PET/CT scan. He was on a high protein/low carb diet today and can't have anymore food until after the scan tomorrow. He couldn't even walk the dog today. 

We're hoping that his strict adherence to the guidelines will give very clear results. We're also hoping for definite boundaries between the good and the bad which will make removal of the tumors easier.

The scan will be reviewed next week by the surgeon and a team of doctors which will include Dr. Lin. Harv's currently scheduled for a follow-up appointment and potential chemo on the 10th.

And, then! Harv and I are going to Maui for six nights. This'll be a very nice rest before his surgery -- which is tentatively scheduled for January 24th. I say tentative because it all depends on what the doctors believe is the right next step after reviewing the scan results. (And, in case I haven't been clear, this surgery will be to remove the tumors in his liver...And, hopefully to remove the cancer completely from his body -- FOREVER!)

Please pray that the scan results are clear. Please pray that the tumors have shrunk and that the doctors have clear direction on the best surgery plan for Harvey. 

I will update more when we know more.

Thank you so much for all that you do for us.
I love you people. (I'm not KIDDIN'!)
Oh! And, Happy New Year! ♥
