This is Ruthie’s sister Allison. As most of our readers know, Ruthie underwent major surgery last week and still has one more surgery to go. Due the seriousness of her illness and the length of recovery time she has ahead of her this website is going to be on temporary hiatus until she is able to start updating regularly again. Also, she will not be updating her twitter account at @tvdfansonline until she is at a point where she is on a good road to recovery. She would like to thank everyone who has sent her messages, called and offered support and prayer. She loves and misses you all.
