Just saw Harv... He's sore and thirsty.
Dr.Park said he was surprised at how healthy the liver looked. He took about 60% of the liver -- 3 bigger tumors and 2 smaller ones.
Hard to remember all the details, but the goal is to get him moving and recovered quickly so we can do another one of these surgeries and get rid of the rest of the tumors.
He ended up taking more than he thought he was gonna take 'cause of the placement of the tumors. He was able to take the only tumor that still appears to be growing...and some of the others.
Tonight he'll be in ICU so they can keep an eye on him and make sure he doesn't bleed. Hopefully in a regular room by tomorrow a.m.
I'm gonna spend the night at a friend's place and hopefully come back tomorrow as a very effective drill sergeant. :-)
Current prayer request: that his liver will regrow, but the tumors will not grow.
Thank you all for your prayers and concern. Love you!!!

Tell Harvey I'm rooting for growth and shrinkage in all the right places!
