Worries, worries

Two things I have going on at the moment.

The knee. Today marks two weeks since I hurt it. It is still a bit swollen, although improved from what it originally was, and I still have some pain from time to time, especially when I've been sleeping. I think I bump it when I sleep, or try to move it more than it should be moved. It looks like I will be out of action for some time to come. What makes it more interesting is that the GP and physio have different opinions. On Monday I went back for my checkup, and he said it seemed to be healing itself, no problem. Yesterday went back to the physio, he still thinks that there is a deeper problem, a problem with the meniscus, and thinks I should see a knee specialist. He is going to consult with some of his colleagues first, and see what they think. So at the moment, I just have to rest, do the exercises, and put ice on the swollen bits. One good thing, it is hot today (3o degC) so I'll get in the pool later. Walking in water is a good exercise for the knee.

Other thing. On the weekend I felt a lump in my breast. I don't often examine them, so I'm not sure how long it has been there. Instant fear hit me. Brian has been good, calming me down, chances are it is nothing. When I went to the doctor on Monday I told him about it, he took a look (or a feel I should say), and thinks it is all ok. But to be on the safe side he wants me to have an ultrasound. I have that at 2.30 this afternoon. I feel nervous. Everything should be ok, but I can't help but worry. I just wish it was over and done with, the waiting is getting to me a bit.

Will give an update later today to say how things went.
