(Nice to see Comic Fury is finally loading for me. I've only been trying to post this all day.) -_-

Anyway, I know how you feel Rain...

It's been a month since I last posted a page (meaning it's been almost a month since my surgery). Recovery has been a bit strange. It feels like it's been going really, really fast in a lot of ways, but there are frustratingly many things reminding me that I'm still not at 100%. I feel like I must be getting close though. The irony is that what I want to do more than anything is sit here and draw pages like crazy so I can get back to posting. But what I actually NEED to do is not be so sedentary. I need to move around. Balancing that shouldn't be too difficult, but it's still kind of frustrating.

I mean, I REALLY want to get back to work. I am so stir crazy lately. I am starting to work on pages again, as a result. I'm a little slow still, but it's nothing I can't do. It's all about pacing (which my need to be physically active should keep in check).

What I might try to do is cut the hiatus short by posting fewer pages a week. If any long-time readers recall how I temporarily cut posting days down to just Wednesdays and Fridays during Chapter 10 while I dealt with things in my life, that's kind of what I'm thinking about here. Something that allows me to feel like I'm doing anything (making me happy), while simultaneously being patient with my recovery. Plus, the story gets moving again, (hopefully making you happy; I know it does for me!). I'd probably keep up the "two updates per week" model going through the remainder of Chapter 24, which should more than buy me enough time to recover to 100% so I can bring us completely back to normal for Chapter 25. Even if I recover completely before then, it'll give me some extra time to work on expanding my buffer again, and work on Chapter C so I can finally get Volume 3 out. It works in so many ways.

I'm very adamant about this. Can't just keep these ladies waiting around on line forever, right? XD

Official return date, coming soon. ^_^

@All: So, my doctor called me earlier today. It seems the results of my surgery have finally come in. Everything came back negative! I've beaten cancer! :D

They'll surely continue to monitor me for a while, and I've still got some surgical recovering to do, but the worst is over. Thank you, everyone, for believing in me and rooting for me through this whole ordeal.

It will take some getting used to but I think 2 posts a week till your 100% would be fine. Whatever works best for you Jocelyn, we want you to be healthy and happy

Hi Jocelyn! So can I just say that I just recently got caught up on Rain and I have to say that it is fantastically adorable and funny and awesome. I read the entire comic in a day or two and was pleasantly surprised that you are still writing it considering how long it has been since your first Rain! :D Anyway, I hope you feel better!!!

I hope that your recovery happens quickly, I've had major surgeries, not like yours, they are never enjoyable.

Also I love Emily, she's so cute, is she reading romance manga?

Would say it's yuri judging by its cover :p

(Hope your recovery goes well Jocelyn... Also, yay, Rain again \o/ )

We're seeing it a bit closer and more clearly here, but that's the girl-love comic Emily bought earlier on in canon. XD

Hello! I'm a long time reader, but I've never posted before. I just want to say, I'm really impressed with your dedication to your comic. After everything you've gone through, you're chomping at the bit to get back to work. You're truly amazing, as is your webcomic! But please, take your time to recover! Your health is the most important thing right now. I'll wait as long as it takes.
