I've been waiting to see a specialist for several months now. Last week I called my referring doctor to ask if I had an appointment with the specialist yet. They checked and said that I'm still on the waiting list and I just need to wait for them to call me.
Today I decided I'd call the specialist's office, just to see where I was on the waiting list. It turns out they never got my referral! I wasn't even on the waiting list!! I've been waiting months, thinking I was on the list.
Then, I called my other specialist's office because I was supposed to get a call about my latest test results. The secretary told me they never got my test results. So now she's going to make some calls and find out what happened to them.
I didn't mention this earlier, but when I was going for my tests, they mixed them up and if I hadn't known exactly what type of tests I was going for, they wouldn't have done the right one.
Okay, deep breaths Lisa... There's nothing I can do now so I might as well just move on.
Let this be a lesson to all, know your own medical stuff! Don't assume your health care professionals have got it all under control because mistakes happen ALL the time.
In other news, it's incredibly hot today and Archie has taken to hiding under the coffee table. Maybe I'll join him...
