Update - better the last couple days

I began emerging from the pit yesterday with some more strength. Today I don't feel quite as strong as yesterday, but I am so glad not to be where I was the first half of this week. They told me there would be good days and bad - I hope the worst are behind me. I am far from full strength, but it is good to feel alive again.

The test results showed I do have a recurrence of c-diff bacteria, which should pass in a matter of days. So really two things are going on - the bacteria (digestive problems) and the typical liver resection recovery (fatigue, pain). Today, we hear from the doctor as to whether I need to return tomorrow to meet him. Also, we should find out if I can travel back to Dallas soon.
