Liam is doing well. He will remain sedated for pain management for a few days. The doctor is planning to remove the breathing tube this afternoon.
It will take a few weeks to get the pathology results back, but from initial results it looks like the surgeon got a clear margin. This means a "rim" of healthy tissue was removed with the tumor. In the places where this "rim" was smaller was near dead tumor from the chemo, all live tumor cells appeared to be a good distance from the healthy tissue.
Liam lost about 60% of his liver. He also lost a lot of blood, during the surgery he was transfused his entire volume of blood. This was expected, the liver is a very vascular organ. He has been getting a steady stream of plasma because when he lost his blood he lost his clotting factors, those were not replenished with the transfusions.
He is resting comfortably right now. Sorry I do not know how to upload pics from the iPad. I'll add some from home later.
