I’m frustrated/devastated

I did the most recent update (April 7th) and now my game freezes while loading! HELP??! I've never had this problem before!

I've tried loading the game probably 50 times over the past 4 hours. I've restarted my phone 4 times, did the iPhone software update, and STILL cannot get this game to get past the loading page. HELP PLEASE! I've spent lots of money to get to level 66, 993 culinary stars and have played for 190+ consecutive days–I will be more-than-slightly devastated if my progress is ruined! =(
