Liver ablation

Had a liver ablation last Friday, trying to kill off a spot of cancer in my liver. Diagnosed last year (I think), chemo-embolization last June, ablation last Friday.

Ablation is where they stick a hollow wire into your side, then slide a tiny set of umbrella ribs in there. The umbrella opens and makes an antenna for microwave. Your liver pasteurizes at that spot, along with the cancer — and hopefully they "got it all." If not... Well, medicare keeps doctors off the bread line, right?

My daughter has my Ford. I intend to sleep today. G'night (it's 8:55 a.m.)
