Edit: Thank you all so much for the well wishes! Your words have warmed our hearts so much! Jen is feeling much better, she’s almost back to normal! We will post the next page on Thursday Feb 6th!
We’re so sorry for the long absence! It’s been a very eventful 2 weeks.
As many of you know, Jen has been suffering from a lot of stomach health problems these past few months. Two weeks ago we finally figured out why.
Last week Jen’s stomach problems were so severe that she couldn’t drink water, so we had to go to the ER to replenish her fluids. We found out that she actually had a kidney injury because of it, so she was emitted into the hospital so that they could heal her kidneys with fluids. After her kidneys recovered, the doctor ordered a CT of her abdomen. Later that day we found out that there was a mass about the size of a lime pushing against her stomach.
The mass was isolated and wasn’t connected to any organs, so we decided the best option was to operate.
The next day, she got the mass removed successfully. But it was a pretty major surgery and she needs a lot of time to recover.
The mass was a type of non-cancerous tumor that only appears in the tissue of the digestive system. It’s not harmful except when it hinders the digestive system which it had begun to do the past 3 months. It’s something we need to keep an eye on, but the important thing is that it is out of there!
Jen has been improving greatly after her surgery. Every day she gets stronger and is able to walk and eat more. She was finally discharged from the hospital a couple days ago and has been comfortable at home.
Due to the surgery, we’re going to need to take a month break from doing any pages, so Novae will be returning to the website sometime in February.
Thank you all so much for your patience, your well wishes and encouraging comments, you really helped lift Jen’s spirit as she was going through this. We really feel blessed to have you all as readers!
We’re really looking forward to coming back in February! Have a happy new year and we’ll see you all in a month!
Kate and Jen
