Last week, my collaborator, “partner in crime,” and friend, HerbDoc, had a serious stroke. We were all pretty worried for a while, but she has now gone home to continue her tough road to recovery. That’s very good news, but it’ll be a while before her interesting and informative posts grace this blog again.
As my fellow bloggers know, it’s not always easy finding stuff to write about. I don’t want to let my readers down by publishing too infrequently, but I don’t want to bore them with drivel, either. HerbDoc’s posts are always so interesting and fun. I especially love her musings on the animals and birds that visit her garden. And of course, as her tag implies, she knows a great deal about herbs, and shares that knowledge freely on this blog.
I am assuming she’ll be back writing with me, sooner rather than later. I hope those of you who have enjoyed her contributions will join me in sending her healing vibes in whatever form you choose.
Get well soon, Kathy! I miss you already.
I’ll miss you and your encouraging and insightful words, herbdoc. You are in my prayers and I’m sending good thoughts your way as you recover.
Post when the spirit moves you, dirtynailz.
I look forward to all the Digging RI posts, even if they arrive infrequently. You WON’T be forgotten.
Thanks for your kind words, CJ. They mean a lot.
I will continue to post regularly in HerbDoc’s absence, so fear not.
And if you ever have the urge to write a guest post, don’t hesitate to let me know!
Gardening from a southern perspective, perhaps?????
That’s certainly a tempting thought. Thanks, dirtynailz.
So sorry to hear this. Am sending healing wishes and prayers to HerbDoc. I look forward to hearing from her again when she’s up to it. Thank God for our neural plasticity and our increased knowledge about stroke rehab. Rehab can do wonders.
Don’t worry about the drivel, you’re not capable of that.
Thanks for letting us know. / a concerned fan
Thanks for being concerned, and for being a fan. I promise to keep you posted on her recovery.
A quick reply to let you all know that I’m up and around….maybe 2-3 hours at a time. Feeling pretty well and have a family staff monitoring my every move…lol. Hopefully will be able to post soon;the stroke has given me the impetus i need to write that book. Take care and thanks for all your good wishes.
What wonderful news!! It’s fantastic to see your note so soon, HerbDoc. Sign me up for the first copy of your book. SOLD!!
Now that’s great news!
So glad to hear from you, HD. You have been missed, and we await your book, so hurry up and write it already!
