Or lack of it.
FL went for his monthly Zometa infusion today and we were expecting a Freelite result. So we asked to see the doctor. This caused much confusion because he was not "due" to see a doctor this month. However, it had the advantage of getting him in there as the first appointment of the day!
Result? No result. Because they either failed to send his sample to Birmingham, or it got lost en route, or Birmingham lost it. Whatever, there are no magic numbers on the computer.
They are going to "try again" this month. And the doctor says she will ring us if the result is bad. I don't know if that is better or worse. Because I kind of think she will forget this promise and the first we will hear of it is when FL goes back to the hospital in a month's time, under strict instructions from them NOT to ask to see a doctor unless he is feeling ill, because he is not DUE to see a doctor... even if his result is back.
