MR, received an unexpected call, does this mean I've been awarded?

Hi just in the middle of MR had an unexpected phone call from Dwp asking questions like had I been abroad or hospital. Said I still need to send in more paperwork but not received it from hospital yet lady said not to worry I am looking at your claim you will receive a letter in a couple of weeks keep an eye on bank account. Dose this mean I have been awarded or that they are still looking at claim? So confused. 
Thanks in advance

    Those are usually the questions they ask before paying anything they owe. However, we have had some members that have been asked those questions at MR stage and the decision stayed the same so there was no award. 

    For that reason you'll need to wait until you know what that decision is. Once it's made you will be contacted. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
