Spoke too soon?

 Hi everyone. A huge welcome to my new followers Jaycee, Alice P and Tanya M. I hope you like my cards and visit often. If Alice and Tanya tell me their blogs I'll come and visit. 
Well I hope I haven't spoken too soon about this being a better year! More later on that.
 
 
Today's card is a box card I made for my mum-in-law's birthday, the 26th January. I think I've already told you that it's my birthday too. Anyway I hope you like her card.

 To continue from the start of the post-

I got out of bed at six o'clock in the morning one Sunday, a couple of weeks ago, then the next I knew Stuart was shaking me and I was on the floor with pain in my head and neck. Stuart said I'd just fallen backward for no reason with my eyes up in my head. As I couldn't get up and wasn't with it, Stuart rang for an ambulance. Packaged on a back board, neck collar and head blocks I was driven to hospital. I was x-rayed and CT scanned and told I had a skull fracture! Fifteen minutes later I was told it wasn't fractured it was a join line they'd seen, phew! So I was told to get up more slowly next time and we went home. I was discovering new bruised areas daily and I'm still dizzy but it definitely could have been worse, yes my hubby said, I could have landed on him, lol!! So now I'm having tests to find out what happened. 
I'll have a candy giveaway, in my next post, just for current followers as a belated birthday thank you for hanging in there with me.

                                  sending you all a big hug,

                                              Debra x
