Lois will have to continue getting checked every year to keep an eye on things and they will do another biopsy the next time she is checked. We are all feeling better about things right now and very happy.
I had a contrast CT scan today and the doctor will have to look at the results and determine what they want to do about the TIPS procedure. They are looking to see if the blood clot that I've had is still there. It is in the portal vein, which is the vein that they would be connecting one of the hepatic veins to. If it is still there, it could play a big role in whether this procedure is going to be possible. Another waiting game, but I'm not so worried about it. They raised my beta blockers again to help the blood flow. Two years ago I was taking 20mg., now I'm up to 120mg. The bad thing about that is, if you aren't careful standing up you can take a head dive. I've gotten a little dizzy before, but never had a tailspin.
Wishing everyone a great weekend.
