For those of you who haven't heard, the timetable for Gwen's surgery has moved up a little. This week
she will be getting her new temporary tube (called a G-J tube) rather than next month. If this is successful, the more major surgery to put in her permanent J-tube will be in the summer.

Watch here for any updates.
