I may have have a better approach!

j0(x) = sqrt(1/pi) * (cc(x) * u - ss(x) * v) / sqrt(x)
y0(x) = sqrt(1/pi) * (cc(x) * u + ss(x) * v) / sqrt(x)

j0(x) + y0(x) =   2 * sqrt(1/pi) * cc(x) * u
j0(x) - y0(x) = - 2 * sqrt(1/pi) * ss(x) * v

So, we have

u = (j0 + y0) / (2 * sqrt(1/pi) * cc)
v = (y0 - j0) / (s * sqrt(1/pi) * ss)

Thus, we can find u = r/s or u = 1 + r/s and v = r/s.
