Unfortunately it was inconclusive - but at least there's nothing visibly major going on. Seems I still have a bit of a road ahead with this issue, whatever it even is. Nothing quite like getting a "Lol idk" from a specialist after a diagnostic surgery you waited years for. I can't sit up for very long yet, but I'll be back to work and updating again as soon as I've recovered.

Well if nobody else if going to make an inappropriate joke to cheer you up, I suppose it falls to me...

I'm pretty sure if a facehugger had laid eggs in your chest, the doctors would have noticed it.

Knowing doctors as well as I do, that's a potentially risky assumption.

... and believe me, I wish I *was* joking.

Twenty years ago I had testicular cancer which originally was misdiagnosed as orchitis.  Fortunately it stayed at Stage 1.

I think a big problem with doctors is that they can't grasp the possibility that people can have more than one thing happening independently. Not saying this happened to you but it's possible to have both orchitis and testicular cancer.

For example, had one patient come into ED (ER) with abdominal pain. Urinalysis confirmed he likely had a urinary tract infection -----> good explanation for the cause of the pain. Luckily, because I did my job and asked all the right questions and all the other basic examinations you do on everyone, I didn't stop there. He'd just had abdominal surgery very recently and his abdominal sounds weren't right (or absent or something like that). So, I also got some X-rays done. Oh look, he also had a bowel obstruction. Started treatment for both the likely urinary tract infection and his bowel obstruction and then called his surgeon for readmission. Key point is, I didn't stop when I hit the first diagnosis.

And she's active on dA again.

Goat, if you're lurking on here, I hope you know we miss you and completely not understand your situation, but you owe nothing to us and we wouldn't judge you for the hiatus. Just come back to us :(

Comic's not dead. For starters, she made one more page which I as a patron on Patreon got in my Patreon feed (say that three times quickly) and once she sorts everything out, she hopes to get it all back up and running as a regular thing. I've just fired an enquiry to her in the last day or so about what the current state of play is.

Did she actually announce something on Patreon that contradicts what she announced on dA? Because she did announce she was putting the comic on hold to take some art-related opportunity.

She sent me something in an email on the subject a while back. Plan at the time was to finish the chapter before publishing the rest, that was back in March - waiting to hear back on an update,

I recall the announcement was around the same time as putting issue 9 on Patreon. Sadly I cannot recall when that was, only that I think it was earlier this year. Where does that fit into your timeline?

February 15th is when Page 8 went up in the Patreon only.

Accompanying text at the time said she was trying to build up a buffer.

The last email I had on the subject was March 9th. Waiting on a reply now for the most recent one to see what the latest is.

Ah, finally found the announcement. It lines up with what you're talking about, but it's possible she got picked up after March. I really loved her comic, but there aren't a lot of explanations for her absence and I'd prefer it to be "wild success building terrifying animatronics for film."
