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.

  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.
