Oh Thank You, Sweet Baby Jesus!

That I am NOT pregnant. I drove like a madwoman to make it to the pathology lab before they closed, because Jim called them (and was irate and demanding, presumably) and they finally agreed to give me the results, but only in person.
I was a little afraid that I was going to feel somehow disappointed if the results were negative. Just because it always seems like you should be feeling pro baby, and I worried that maybe there was a part of me secretly cheering on a pregnancy. It would not be unlike me, let's just say. But I was so relieved when I got the results, I was actually shaking. There was no disappointment. And it's not that I don't want more babies. Just not now. I SO did not want to have to go through another pregnancy. Pregnancy does not seem to like me.
Anyways. Thanks for putting up with my obsessive worrying, you all. I am going to chalk this up to a Sobering Lesson in why you don't let those moments of passion get the better of you when you are all out of birth control!

Whew! We'll all sleep better tonight. You most of all.

I was wondering if you'd be a tiny disappointed, but I completely understand that you're not.

YEAH!!! I'm so glad you didn't have to wait!

Oh, I'm so happy you didn't have to wait! It seemed SO RIDICULOUS that they would not give you your OWN results!

I actually didn't have to be irate. I asked them to tell me why they couldn't/wouldn't release the results, and they said HIPAA doesn't allow it.

So I asked them to refer me to the section of HIPAA which allows a lab technician to refuse a patient her test results.

Just remember these people (health care, government, insurance) work for us. We finance all of their paychecks.

I'm going to shamelessly take this opportunity to promote my Presidential candidate Ron Paul. The mainstream media doesn't give him much of a platform, but he's all over the internet.

If you don't know or understand his platform, you should watch this video.

It's less than 10 minutes long. It's a little cheesy, but it conveys his message.

Geez, I get behind on blogs for one week, and look at all the drama I missed! I'm glad you didn't have to wait, and I'm glad the mystery was solved.

Mairzy said...

Ah, closure is good. Especially when you didn't have to wait through a holiday weekend! Glad you're happy with the results. Now you can relax!

Hoo boy. I keep hearing all of these stories about people refusing to give medical results and it makes me SO ANGRY every time.

Cocktails for everyone, eh?
