Today I was told to go to the hospital to do blood work, etc. before my surgery next week. I even called my surgeon's office this morning to confirm it.
However when I arrived at the hospital, I was told by a slightly grumpy nurse that I couldn't get anything done today. Apparently they didn't have my paperwork yet.
The next 45 minutes involved calling my surgeon's office and waiting for my paperwork to be faxed over. In the end I was able to get my blood drawn and hopefully I wont need to go back a second time.
