I do believe that things happen for a reason. 
I think I mentioned that I fell on Christmas Eve day and really did a number on my face.
I bruised my ribs and knee but the main concern I had was my eye.  I had to wait 3 days until I had someone that could stay with my husband before I could see the Doctor.  
Good news is the CT scan and X-Rays were normal but the Dr., who is not my regular Dr. noticed a lump on my neck.  He suspected the thyroid. I had to wait to see my regular Dr to order a scan for that.  The results indicate there is a nodule and I have to have a biopsy done.  That is scheduled for the end of the month.  
So I am asking for some good thoughts and a few prayers.  

What was interesting about the fall is my husband noticed and made whimpering sounds when he looked at me and when I told him it did not hurt that much and touched his hand to my face he tried to wipe away the bruise. So deep inside he still his the caring, loving man that I have known for 35 years!

a 'lucky' fall?
I offer prayer and good thoughts for a good outcome for all of this
I also believe that deep down inside him somewhere  is all the good stuff  and he sometimes has to fight to get it out        does that make sense at all


I fell again new year's morning doing what I'm not supposed to do        I dropped chopped onion on the floor        and tried to pick it up   I think I slipped on the onion and couldn't recover
I hit my left hip , knee and thumb     but just bruised

Isn't it amazing how much "just" bruised bones hurt!  Thank goodness for Advil PM for the good night sleep I have been getting.

So sorry to hear about your fall.  Hope you are recovering, and that the lump they found will turn out to be something that is easily fixed.   Best wishes and prayers!!!

P.S. My doctor is constantly warning me about falling ( are your throw rugs safe?, do you use the railing when going up or down stairs? etc.)  Good advice for all of us!!

I figured I would give a quick update. 
Bruises healed
Had a biopsy done and no cancer
At this point "we" will monitor the thyroid and if the nodule gets larger then will discuss surgery.

good for you   nikki
 always good to hear the    NO CANCER      that's about the longest days we spend anxiously awaiting that news 
i'm glad your getting better  hope your scraping and shoveling end soon

and laugh at us and our snowfall thursday morn
we had little snow pellets       caused by a condition I can't remember what it was called      but when soft snow mixes with soft raindrops in the atmosphere  they were calling them  "snow-dots" like ice cream dots
