So I was looking through my blog the other day and realized I never made an update about how my surgery went! As you all know, I survived. The surgeon removed 2/3 of my liver up to the margin where he could no longer remove anymore. He was not able to get all of the tumor, he had to leave a little sliver which hopefully will be killed with my chemo. He also removed my gallbladder, the tumor in my esophagus, and the tumor by my heart. During the surgery, the surgeon found and removed four more spots in my diaphragm and bile track that looked iffy. When tested, three of them came back positive for cancer. I'm really lucky my surgeons were some of the best in their specialty and saw those spots, because they were too small to be seen on any X-rays.

 I've felt SO MUCH BETTER since the surgery. It's crazy how much that tumor in my esophagus made me puke. Now that it's gone, I don't get sick! And now that I'm all healed up I can do anything I set my mind to.

 Here's a picture of my awesome battle scar!
