I am pretty sure I would have put a blog post up the first day whining and crying and carrying on- maybe not, though. You just never know. Being forced into relative silence- probably painful immobility- and being removed from the place that you are comfortable and familiar, not being able to come and go as you wish, and just the general looking at life-as-you-no-longer-know-it in the face, must be something that is a daily, indeed hourly, struggle.

I want to do a little shout out to my buddies (and hers) at the Sprout-off forum where we first met. It is a great, quirky bunch that are always ready to talk all things gardening, and then some! :) Please visit if you are a gardening person- this is a fabulous group!!
