So after ten hours the operation is done and we are assured a success. Mr Moran has resected the tumour and removed Brenda’s appendix, spleen, uterus, ovaries and gallbladder. He has also performed a right hemicolectomy but he has preserved all sorts of other bits which means she will not have to have a stoma fitted. This is fantastic news and will buoy her up a great deal
Thanks to everyone for their love and positive thoughts. I can’t thank Brendan Moran, the surgeon and his team enough what a superhuman effort. Over 400 people in 10 countries have been in touch which is a tribute to my ‘Wonder Woman’ wife.
