Husband had ultrasound, labwork, and check back appointment with hepatologist on May 16, 2013.  All is well.  Ultrasound showed little to no change in small, benign cyst with septation measuring 6.8 x 5.5 x 5.0 cm.

Liver Function is good, given Hep C and Cirrhosis, and liver is still compensated:
PT=13.1
INR=1.1
BILI=0.7
AST=51
ALT=87
ALB=3.5
AFP is pending

Ultrasound is good:  no signs of liver cancer, no signs of ascites.  

Blood counts are all good, following failed triple tx with Incivek last April, 2012.  
WBC=6.96
Hgb=16.3
Hct=47
Plt=154

Next follow up imaging, labwork, and appt with hepatologist is in December, 2013.
Hopeful for new HCV treatment (12 wks of sofosbuvir, interferon, and ribavirin) will be approved and available by then.
