I’ve felt pretty stressed the last couple of days. I got results back from a follow-up blood test, which I had to do because a routine blood test had come back with something abnormal… and the follow-up one showed it was still abnormal (plus I have another issue now), so, more tests ahead. Organising those involved calling the local hospital, and just as I was on hold to them my phone stopped working 😩 So then I scrambled to DDG to work out how to fix it, and then I still had to call the hospital (again). Finally got the appointments, but their next slots were the 20th and 21st. So I guess I’ll be living in doubt until a little after then. I think things are unlikely to turn out to be really bad, but my doctor is kind of mystified at the moment, so it’ll be nice to know for sure.
