Yo, Chefs! I've been fortunate enough to have lunch several times at Harry's Bar and Grill at 22 S. 18th St. The food there is simply wonderful. I especially enjoy the sauteed liver, which my husband detests and therefore I never cook at home. Can you get me the recipe, anyway? Irene E. Jaros West Chester Dear Irene, Kathleen Mulhern, the legendary proprietor of Harry's Bar & Grill, takes special pride in her sauteed calf's liver. She says there are two keys to making it: buying and cutting the liver fresh, and cooking it quickly over high heat.

Wish some of that Mickey Mantle transplant karma Larry Hagman's way: the TV star has just added his name to the list. Hagman's got a cancerous tumor on his liver and will need a transplant, his publicist said yesterday. Hagman disclosed last month that he had developed a small tumor on his much-abused liver - he was first diagnosed with cirrhosis in 1992 - but more recent tests indicated the growth is malignant. Given Hagman's condition, his doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles are abandoning earlier thoughts of freezing or otherwise tampering with the tumor.

I flipped through the pages of my cookbooks yesterday, Thinking to myself that liver could be cooked in just one way, But I found to my surprise and my dismay There must be 50 ways to love your liver. You can cook it up with bacon or with ham. Don't forget the onions, leeks, peppercorns or currant jam. Bake it, broil it, stew it, fry it in a pan. Just make a puree, Ray. Or give it a grill, Lill. Try a saute, Mae. Whatever you will. Slice it quite thin, Lynn.

Despite an appeal by President Reagan for an organ donor, a 2-year-old New Jersey girl died yesterday at a Pittsburgh hospital while waiting for a liver transplant - her only hope for survival. "Keep your faith strong and your hopes high," Reagan, in a telegram, told the parents of Kimberly Izzo of Woodbridge. "I have often urged Americans to become organ donors and do so once again. May God bless you," the President wrote. The child, daughter of Alfred and Lois Izzo, died of liver failure at 5:30 a.m. at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, said hospital spokeswoman Mary Ann Ference.

About 7:30 p.m. Monday, the beeper that Juan Guerra wears went off in one long drone, louder then previous beeps that signaled false alarms. "Oh, my God," said Guerra, who was serving a chicken dinner to his house guest, Santos Fonesca Martinez. "Don't eat that!" he warned Martinez. After a quick phone call, Guerra learned that a donor liver had been found for Martinez, a Honduran, and that a transplant must be performed within a few hours. They rushed to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, and by 11:30 that night surgery had begun, opening a new life for Martinez, who suffered severe liver damage as a child, apparently when he was exposed to a massive dose of a pesticide.

A 32-year old woman arrived at my office for her first primary care visit, referred by a cardiologist for abnormal blood-test results. Throughout the preceding years, she had been to various specialists for different medical issues and while gathering her patient history, I began putting the pieces together. Her journey to my office began with a routine cholesterol screening at work. Because the results were high, she consulted a cardiologist, who prescribed a statin to get her numbers down.

Hello there On New Year's Day 2012, Cliff waited for Richard by the Christmas tree at 30th Street Station. They had "e-met" in an Internet chat room six months prior, and had spent a good part of every day since talking - even when the Martell Group, Cliff's production, marketing, and sales company, took him time zones away. Richard, who is now 68, lives where he grew up: Norwalk, Conn. The three-hour train ride to Philadelphia was nerve-racking. He had only started dating men about two years prior, and here he was going to meet one who lived hundreds of miles away!

'I'm more tired than usual, doctor," the patient said, though she really thought nothing was wrong. At 60, she assumed age was catching up with her, and was at the doctor's office for her routine checkup. Indeed, all her blood work was normal - except for the panel revealing elevated liver enzymes. A liver ultrasound suggested the damage had been going on for some time. Aside from hypertension, she had no other active medical conditions. The only drugs she took were a diuretic and a multivitamin.

Chicopee had lost some weight and his skin seemed loose. His right eardrum bulged slightly.

When Carlos Rosario Ramirez, 10, of North Philadelphia, was diagnosed with fatty liver in 2010, his doctor prescribed a change in diet and an exercise plan. Out went sugary sodas and sweets; in came fruits, vegetables, and more activity. Without drugs to treat fatty liver, the plan was to lose weight, lower his cholesterol, and lower his insulin resistance in hopes of reversing the condition. But the goal hasn't been easy to reach, says his mother, Lourdes, 47, who worked with Carlos and a nutritionist at the Healthy Weight program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

A 36-year-old man who sold antiques over the Internet developed a sore throat and persistent cough in early September. For several weeks, he put up with the cough, but in early October, his energy flagged, and he began waking up in the middle of the night, feverish and drenched in sweat. He went to see his physician, who prescribed Doxycyclin, an all-purpose antibiotic that is active against a broad range of bacteria. The medicine did not work. His fevers persisted, and he felt increasingly washed-out and weary.

THE WAY Poppy Livers sees the world, everyone has their own story. His just happens to be a little more distinct. Or even a lot. "Because I have a background," he said. Especially for someone who didn't know much about Villanova until the time he showed up there with almost no place else to go, despite the fact that his grandfather, an Olympic hurdler and namesake, is in the university's Varsity Club Hall of Fame. "It's a lot to take in," Livers acknowledges. The journey has been circuitous.

"He tells me I'm 5-[foot-]3 every day," Livers said Monday at Villanova's media day. "His favorite thing to say is: 'You wake up with leverage on other people.' " In fact, Livers said, it was Flinn who noticed that a walk-on, officially listed at 5-foot-7, belonged on the field. "He didn't care if I was black, white, green - 6 feet," Livers said.
