Update – 1:00 p.m.
The hepatologist just came out with another update. The tumor is out and the new liver is in! Ana’s tumor was absolutely huge and covered with vessels. This caused much bleeding and she had to get a lot of blood, but they’ve stabilized the bleeding and she’s not getting blood at the moment. The new liver is almost fully connected.
She showed us pictures of the tumor and there was hardly any healthy liver visible. I don’t know how her liver was functioning. Apparently you can have healthy liver function with only 10% of functioning liver.
So she is stable now and they are beginning the last phase of the operation. We still have a while to go. Miles to go…
