The short version: Dear Hubby has a medical condition that requires regular check ups and monitoring. He went last Tuesday to have his routine blood work done. The very next day (the day I left on my trip, by the way), the doctor calls and says the lab faxed over the results and that one of the tests was abnormal.
He had a high level of a particular enzyme that's released when there's an injury to a muscle. Since his condition is coronary, and the heart is a big muscle, the doc decided to call rather than wait until their sit-down appointment later this month. Dear Hubby is feeling fine, so the doctor thinks it's an interaction with his medications so she asks him to discontinue taking one and go for more bloodwork a week later.
So....Dear Hubby goes to the lab to have blood drawn on Tuesday morning. Here is it Thursday afternoon and the lab has not yet faxed the results to the doctor.
My rant is this: Why did it take less than 24 hours to fax the results the first time, and more than 2 days the second time? 53.5 hours and counting. GRRRRR!
