Amateur anatomy

Here is my (very) rough estimate from memory showing what kind of progress there has been.

The lines show the region of cancer visible to the CT scan. My impression is that the surgery will be of most of the large lobe and possibly some of the smaller. They like to get good margin. I continue to be amazed that as small as a quarter of the liver can regenerate quickly back into the full organ.

Greg and Christine,
Thank you for your faith in the Lord, your countenance and your keeping us all informed. You are an example of the believer leaning on the Everlasting arms of One who said He will help. We pray for you often and will continue.
