After the therasphere's procedure done in late December, I am finally ready for liver resection. The speres did their job and made me a candidate!! The last two days I have done all my pre-op stuff and scans, and I am a go for surgery on the 6th of April in Tampa. I am officailly NED right now too. They will be removing all of my right lobe and gall bladder. The fact that I am having surgery is amazing to me! They told me they could not do it, thats why we did the spheres and now I have done a complete turn around.

Wow - what a breakthrough for you, Christy.

Your story is very inspiring to all of us - but you know who is going to be really thrilled to hear this news?

Yep, our very own Patti (ittap)!!

As soon as she sees this post, she'll be flying high and this will really motivate her and give her hope after seeing you do what she is just behind you trying to do as well.

You 2 gals will be the poster children of "what can be done" when all looks lost.

I'm so pulling for you both - stories like these are motivators :)

Best of luck and can't wait to hear how it goes.
