On the Mend

Mother Nature caught wind of my plight and sent me flowers!

My very first hollyhock blossom ever, in the history of my life. I have been looking around at all of the ten-feet-tall hollyhocks in the 'hood and biting my nails over the fact that mine still hadn't bloomed. It turns out, they were waiting until I needed them most. I cannot properly impress upon you how happy this made me.

While we're on the subject (sort of?) thank you all for your well wishes! I was hopped up on a pain-killer cocktail the last time I posted, but by 4 a.m. that night reality had come to call. Yesterday was iffy, but today is a brand new day and I am most definitely on the mend. The doctor even said I can shower today! Hoorah! Perhaps I'll really celebrate and slap on some deodorant while I'm at it.


  1. glad you are doing all right! that sounds so scary...

  2. Lol. Glad you are feeling better!! And GLAD you can shower! I was beginning to wonder what that smell was.......

    And those are beautiful flowers!! :)

  3. Glad you feel better! Sounds like a rather frightening experience. The flower is beautiful! Take care.

  4. I have been away, so sorry to hear about your experience. I am glad you are feeling and a shower always helps (plus deodorant ;) '
    That hollyhock is just beautiful and that it bloomed just in time to give you a boost.

  5. I'm so glad you are on the mend. Nothing like a little hollyhock therapy to heal what ails you. What a lovely color.


  6. Oh so glad you got a blessing. God works that way doesn't He?? Glad you are feeling better.
