I am so happy and so relieved and so GRATEFUL to God . Surgery went very very well for my husband. What was supposed to take 6-8 hrs, was 2 -1/2! and the surgeon said that he believes he got all the liver mets! 5 spots showed up on mri/ct most of you know.Now after surgery, only 2 he believes were actually really mets. One was something he was born with and not of big concern and the two other spots, he could find nothing to remove! He did not have to go to ICU. He is very sore however and still having some issues, but if things stay moving in the right direction, he'll be home next week. I want to tell you new fighters , to never give up hope. To research and pursue all options vigorously no matter what you are told at the start of your journey. As many of you know we were told inoperable for the last 8 mos. I don't know what the future holds. No one does, but I know right now I am more hopeful than ever! God Bless you all . You are all in my prayers.

    Great news !!I wonder how many people hear "inoperable" and don't go any further. Great jog hanging in there - that way he can be with us when the next miracle happens.

    Interesting, we are probably one of the few groups of people that get excited when we are told it IS operable...LOL

    Hugs to both you AND hubby!!!

    I've been out of town with on an elderly mother mission and just returned to see your good news. This is beyond wonderful! In a few weeks he will be feeling so much better and this will all seem like a bad dream(more like a nightmare).
    I'm so happy for you both.
