So, what's happening this week? One update is happening, on Friday.
Why? Isabel's computer has been overheating and randomly crashing which makes it difficult to make comics. We've added another fan, which should keep things going a bit longer. Also, we've got a bit more medical things to deal with this week. Further tests. And she had a crown come off last week and we're still dealing with that. So it's been a bit trying lately, for her. We thank you for your patience and support.

And last week's tests were inconclusive. So uncertainty and more tests in the future. At least we've got that to look forward to. We'll try to update Tuesdays and Fridays in the meantime.

Good news is that the colitis is gone. Bad news is that we're still working on figuring out the root cause of all this. Which means tests. Which means, in this case, no solid food. So, well, she'll get through this. But for now, we're taking a bit of time off.

Two weeks ago, Isabel's stomach went from the normal amount of pain to extreme go-to-urgent-care levels of pain. Four hours later - which included a tour of the pharmacy, lab, and imaging departments - we had a diagnosis of colitis and some rather strong antibiotics.

Antibiotics are difficult on the stomach during good times, and these were not good times. The best information we're seeing on colitis is that certain foods can aggravate it, but that exact list is different for each person. We're trying to figure out what she can safely eat now that she's back on solid food. And trying to get things to the point where "a normal amount of stomach pain" is a thing of the past.

How are we doing? We're adjusting. We're getting better. Healing up. And we're glad that we've got very good insurance. But we're going to update once a week for a bit until we've got a better handle on things and Isabel is feeling better.

The comic is inked but it's not in any shape to be put up tonight. We'll have it for you on Friday and thank you, as always, for reading.

Hey everyone, Isabel here... long and short of it I've had some pretty major heath/mental issues going on with me right now. I'm going to try and keep up the schedule, I just don't know how often I'll be able to. Right now I need to make sure I recover, however long it takes. Anyway, I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has stuck around, invited people or helped keep the comic going financially (seriously, those of you who do are saints).

So as some of you all might know, I write and draw another comic, Apartment for Two. It's a side project of mine along the lines of my other semi-semi- (very semi)-autobiographical comic Wonder Kittens (not giving it a linking to as it's just sort of... there. Not really done, but not getting any more updates). As it's a side project, it doesn't get enough love from me. I tried changing up the format a bit by making the comics have story lines instead of one-shots. That was kind of a problem... after writing that up, I went through a bit of writer's block (thank goodness N&D is written by Terrence, think of the months-long hiatus that comic would go through if I wrote it). I wrote out some one shots, but I didn't want to go right back to them after making this change. I wanted to write a bigger arc, which I have started... unfortunately it's still at the "just started" stage of things... there are three (I think three, maybe more or less, it's been a while since I've read them) that either have a lot of notes or the middle or ends written out (I'm really bad at starting things... kind of ironic, considering the amount of comics I've stopped and started over the years).

TLDR, Scripts for more A42 are in the works that are story lines... but expect some one-shots here and there. Feeling a little defeated and relived, as it's better to go forward than to be the idiot that I know I am over this.

Our Patreon is not back. We're reactivating it because there are terms changes coming to Patreon.com, and we want to make sure that we're grandfathered in under the old terms. We're concentrating on NamirDeiter.net for bonus content, currently. But we want to have options.

Also, we will be closing our PO Box in the near future. All the Post Offices around here are only open during office hours. They lock up the lobbies after 5 or 6 PM. I can't check it after work. I can't check it before work. If you send us a letter, we don't want it sitting around for weeks before I'm finally able to pick it up. So in a few months once it expires, we'll be boxless again.
