Lab Corp how I Loathe Thee

I spent half of today trying to find out why my doctor hadn’t received the results of my thrombophilia panel yet. Eventually I got word from Lab Corp that yes, the tests had been run, and gosh… the results are in the system, they can’t figure out why my doctor can’t access them, and no they can’t tell me the results over the phone, but they’ll put them in the mail to me. I called my nurse back and she checked and *miraculously* the results are in the system. Amazing!

Right, so she wants Dr. Amazing to take a look at the results, because two came back elevated JUST THE TEENSIEST BIT. But so teensey that it probably doesn’t matter, but it’s his call to make. Sort of like me and varicella… I’m JUST SHY of immune levels… now I’m JUST SHY of not having a thrombophilia. Yeah. Um… Neither of those really help me. At any rate, it doesn’t matter, since all they’ll do is put me on baby aspirin if it turns out to be an issue. And well… actually if it’s not an issue, I might ask if I can take the baby aspirin anyway, because, you know? It might actually help my migraines (I took baby aspirin every day until I started trying to get pregnant four years ago… since I’ve got a heart issue that mandates that I should take an anticoagulant or aspirin, and since the heart problem can actually lead to migraines… I did find that being on the aspirin at least reduced the severity, if not the frequency of my migraines).

Oh, and I did POAS and it was faintly positive. Even though, you know, it means nothing.

JUST KIDDING!
