I've thrown a kink into the works!



Hi everybody, Amber here!  I  want to let everyone know that I've suddenly had to leave work in a lurch.  Over the past four or five months I've had strange health issues (fatigue, abdominal distention and more *fun* stuff) resulting in an exploratory laparoscopy.  My gynecologist thought she would be excising  an endometrioma from my right ovary, but when she got in there she was surprised to find a good sized appendiceal mass and mucus running amok in my abdomen.  I've been referred to a fantastic surgeon who will be performing an open surgery to remove the offending tissues on Monday, October 26th.  My recovery time will likely be substantial, so all the weight of work is going to fall squarely on Jill for a while.  Be kind to her (she has been working herself to the bone and producing incredible things) and patient with me and we'll try to get back to our creative teamwork as soon as possible. We love you all!
