Python jira method to append text to "Description" field

Is there a way to do an issue.append to a the Description field?  I want to take text from a Notes field and append to the bottom of the Description field in Jira.

I tried the append method but it isn't supported for description I guess.

issue.append(fields={"description": {"name": notes}})

If is use issue.update, will that overwrite my initial issue.create with description?

Hi Malcom,

The Atlassian User Community and Developer Community recently got split up. 

It'll probably be better for you to ask your question at, you'll have a better chance of getting an answer there!
