The long hiatus on Hirano Aya's normally very active blog is now explained. She has just posted that she has spent the last six days in hospital, for her appendix.
"Sorry for keeping you waiting so long. I apologize for not being able to update the blog. Actually, I have just spent six days in hospital, for my appendix! But now I'm healthy and happy and out of hospital! I've got lots of strength and am getting right back to work! Don't worry about me at all! Let's get together at the Sumomo event next week!"
Aya is scheduled to take part in the open recording of a Sumomo Radio show on the Sunday after next.
