When the research nurse cuddled me last week it may have been because I was on the way out and she was sorry to see me go, or else she had good news. You judge. Here are the results of the latest CT scan:

Liver segment 2: 7mm (size of a small pea) – originally 37mm x 20mm (30.10.08)

Liver segment 4a: Not visible – originally 29mm x 22mm (30.10.08)
