"Hi Adriana.. this is XX with XX. I was calling you back about some test results. Please call me back at.........."

:annoyed:

I refuse to believe there's anything wrong.

ETA - Looking at my chart online, they did a number of tests.. so I'm not sure which one they were calling about. They all say Results Pending or Unavailable.

:confused:

How ANNOYING! I hate it when they do that! I got a call back on a job one time on FRIDAY afternoon. I couldn't call back till Monday. I thought ALL weekend that I got the job. Nope, i didn't. SO upsetting!

I hope it's nothing serious. *hugs*

They usually won't post the results online until you have talked to the doctor or nurse, so you don't look before they see it and start freaking out before they have a chance to review it.

Glucose you know.
The antibody screen I imagine they are retesting the RH factor or possibly making sure that you do not have further antibodies if you were to get a transfusion, it has to match correctly. Or it could be something totally different like a chicken pox antibody or hep b. That is a really vague test description.

The CBC is where there is probably too much information to be helpful. What you really need to know are RBC Red blood cell count, WBC white blood cell count (too many can indicate an infection), and Hemoglobin which is the red blood cell level if you need a transfusion this is the number that they would be looking at, and I suppose hematocrit which is cell pack volume. The rest are other types of cells and would flag if they were to high or too low.

Also Poo for not passing the test! I hope your three hour goes better.

And to add to everyone else's comments, the glucose being off is better than the rest of that being off...especially the antibody Smile 185 is high, but not so high they send you right to jail, no passing go, no collecting $200. LOL I hear a lot of people pass the 3 hour after failing the 1 hour so I hope that is you. If not, you can keep me company! I have a great support group on facebook if you need it. Good Luck!

It's funny how all that sugar doesn't make US go crazy and want to bounce around. I just wanted to sleep the first hour or so. But you're lucky! They just sat me back in the waiting room, so I didn't have much space...and I didn't want to lean my head up against the wall and snore......or drool LOL

lol.. Yeah drooling all over the wall - or yourself Lol - would suck.

Everything went ok.. blood work is going out today so fingers crossed it'll come back by Friday. Would be nice to know one way or another before the weekend.

I totally OD'ed on McDonalds on the way to work, though. OMG it was sooooo good! :oops:
