花とゆめ本誌のほうにて

お知らせは載りましたが、

私のほうからの報告が

遅れてしまいました。



タイトルの通り、

しばらく療養させて頂く事に

なりました。

(フルバ連載の際の病状の

再発ではありません)



リゼ魔女を楽しみに

読んでくださっている読者の方々には

大変申し訳なく思っております…!

本当にすみません…!





現在、

容態がどう転ぶか変化するか

わからない感じでして、

「いついつまでに絶対再開します!」とも

言いきれない感じでして……

申し訳ありません。



とにかく今は安静に過ごすのを第一に、

皆さんの前にまた戻ってこられる日が

来られたらなぁと思っております。



改めまして

この度は関係者各位、家族、そしてなにより一番、

読者の皆さまにご迷惑、ご心配をおかけし

大変申し訳ありませんでした。





高屋奈月
