Actually, I’m going to be hospitalized for a bit starting today!^^ It’s for surgery on my shoulder because I overdid it with weightlifting. I’ll come back with just my shoulder being a cyborg! Let’s stay lively and energetic today too!^^

I’m hospitalized now! Tomorrow is the surgery, and then it seems like I’ll have to go without food for a day. Is it like Gari-zo’s fasting or something?

Oh no! Thank you everyone for your supportive messages!^^ I overdid it with weightlifting and ended up with a torn shoulder tendon, which won’t heal naturally, so surgery is necessary. It’s not that serious, so sorry for worrying you. From tomorrow onwards, I’ll be a cyborg with just my shoulder!^^
