Here I go, once again

Room 80 of the East Wing is my room. Most likely just for tonight as tomorrow I will be in Intensive Care and later in a different room.

I have my wristbands on, obs are taken, hospital gown laid out for morning, and pretty much answered every question about the goings-on of my body that I know.

I am first up on the surgical list in the morning. I think it's because I'm the best. Or maybe just that my surgery could be rather lengthy.

Probably the first one though ;o)

By 7:30 am tomorrow, I will be dead-to-the-world in the operating theatre.

I really want to express my sincerest gratitude for the kindness that has been shown to myself and my family. Whilst I really hate going through surgery, the whole experience is made so much easier by the assistance offered to us. My mind is put at ease knowing my children are being loved and cared for and as a mother, that is what I need most to feel ok.

Anthony is going to update my blog for the next few days to let you know how things are going. Please excuse any rugby, Jay-Z, or UFC references.


  1. You are so brave Jo and so sweet. Our prayers are with you, Anthony and the boys. We look forward to hearing how things go. Love you Jo. xo

  2. All the best Joann e we love you so very much and wish we could take your place so you dont have to suffer. You are a great example to all of us. Lots of Love Dad xxx
