This post is to inform everyone that Living Dead Girl Nicole is back in the hospital. As most of you have read on this news blog she had surgery at Rochester Methodist Hospital on January 18th and experienced complications. She was released on February 5th and finally returned home to IL on February 9th. On Tuesday February 26th she went to ER and was readmitted into a local hospital. Because of this her Etsy shop is temporarily closed and all custom/made to order items (including One Eyed Doll Merch and art prints) are temporarily on hold as well.
For more info about her surgery and/or to make a monetary donation please visit http://www.gofundme.com/nicolen. Nicole is on unpaid medical leave and now does not have the added income from the sale of her artwork so please spread the word by sharing this link with others. Every dollar and every bit of help counts!!
As all of you know I do handmade merch for the band One Eyed Doll. I forgot to mention in my previous posts that my merch is currently on hold with them until I am recovered from surgery. These items I make for them fall under the “custom made to order” items that I am unable to make at this time. Once I am fully recovered you will see my merch back up for sale in their shop and available for purchase.

My Etsy Shop is officially on “vacation mode” as of today. If you go to my Etsy Shop you will see the following message…….
The owner of LivingDeadGirlNicole is on vacation.
Artist Living Dead Girl Nicole is currently on medical leave!!!
I will be having surgery that will be taking place out of town at the Rochester Methodist Hospital (a part of the Mayo Clinic) on January 18th. I will be out of town and starting my medical leave as of January 16th.
Due to this I have put all custom/made to order items and commission requests on hold for the time being.
My Etsy shop will be on vacation mode starting January 11th as I will not be able to ship pre- made items in my shop as of that date. It will reopen around February 1st and my husband will be helping me ship out already made item orders until I am fully recovered. We are reopening the shop while I am still on medical leave because the money from the sales of my shop and art will be my only contribution to our household income during my leave from my full time job.
I appreciate your time and patience during this matter and will be in contact with anyone that reaches out to me as soon as I am able to.

ALSO…..parabellum (my husband’s band) now has their own Reverbnation page!! So make sure you check them out! The page is new so they don’t have a lot on there right now but I actually went to their last practice and did some photos of their instruments and of them rocking out so there is alot more to come!! Make sure you become a fan and spread the word!!
For those of you who have asked I wanted to post this diagram to give you a better idea of the surgery I am having on the 18th. As an artist I prefer visual explanations because I am a visual learner. For those of you who have also asked why I am having surgery check out this article which will give you a very informative perspective of what I am suffering with. I also hope that as you read it if you feel you are suffering with the same that you see a doctor. It might not “just be IBS” and might be something that you need to have fixed before it gets worse. I have suffered so many years with this trying to find out what is wrong that my large intestine is now also stretched out.. it is now considered “tortuous and redundent” which makes my condition worse. I have no shame in talking about any of this and would be happy to answer anyones questions. It is sometimes hard to talk about these types of issues and many suffer in silence. I also highly recommend the AGMD Motility Support Community which I am highly active as user NG1031. This group has helped me get answers, find my miracle doctor and finally get on the right track to where I am now.
I also would like to thank everyone again for the generous donations and support at my www.gofundme.com/nicolen site. Not only have the donations been amazing but so has all the support of everyone who has reposted or have spread the word about my page. I truly appreciate it!
Stay Spooky and Healthy!
