An update on Jo's operation.
As of 5:45pm this evening the operation going very well with no complications. The surgeons have removed lots of tissue and lymph nodes for anlysis and all samples have come back negative, indicating no spread of the disease. A good result!
Jo is stable and her condition is good.
The team of surgeons have been working slowly and steadily in the pelvic wall area remving the tumour millimetre by millimetre. This is the area with the greatest risk, lots of blood vessels and nerves. So far so good.
The surgeon I spoke to said they expect to be working for atleast another 5 hours, so expect to see another post later.
Can I ask everyone to maintain their strong positive focus for Jo throughout the night. Your thoughts and prayers will all be received by Jo and your strength and energy will be used by Jo in her quest to overcome this.
Teenager, mum and other half are doing well, just having a quite day.
I will post again later with more news.
