three times lucky?

hmm. This week, I am the proud owner of three horrid things.

One: an 'abnormality' in my abdomen. That's sort of the worst one. But we try not to think about that!

Two: a big lump of flesh removed from the back of my ankle. Which has STILL not stopped bleeding!

Three: a great bloody scab on my knee – where I smashed it on the desk drawer yesterday. I only noticed this in the bath this evening.

I am actually quite a disaster prone person. I have walked in my sleep a lot – once I fell down the stairs and broke my ribs in the middle of the night. That was an amusing visit to the A&E. X-rays. Painkillers. 

Another time I fell and smashed my forehead open, knocking myself unconscious – I bled a thick pool of blood on my office floor before waking up in it [sort of glued to the tiles - yuck] thinking I'd been murdered. Handily, I hadn't been, but I was concussed for sure – I woke the FH and told him I'd called the police [which I hadn't]. He was a tad startled by my grim visage – blood pouring down my face – not very attractive. Another visit to the A&E…stitches this time.

I constantly stub my toes, rip my fingernails out at the quick and bash myself on things. I always have at least one bruise, cut or scab. Somewhere.

But I am thinking this is a good thing – the next 'thing' has to start a new roll doesn't it? A good one…and that has to be my biopsy.

Here is my nice thing of the day! A stunning bouquet of flowers from the FH for my birthday…wish you could smell them..they are divine!

  1. Lovely, lovely roses! May your 'abnormality' turn out to be something simple, simple, simple to take care of. Bless you. In the meantime, enjoy the beauty of the roses!
