Here are my roots! They are fantastic size rhizomes. I think that I will have a very good chance at seeing a flower stalk next spring. Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers!

Thank you very much Charlotte, @cbunny41 for posting the sale information.

I wondered about that, it just wasn't healing fast enough for a sprain. Hope your recovery is fast.

William, Tom and Lucy ~ Thank You!

Yesterday it was a turning point as I was wondering about the sprain and wanted to know about the slow healing process and intense pain.So that is what prompted me to call the doctor.

Not putting any pressure on the foot really improved the pain level. I'm still healing and my blood pressure is "sky high" right now. I have to focus on slowing my heart rate, especially at bedtime. ("Time heals all wounds." Right?) Shrug! I just need to be patient with all these changes so I can get better.
