One MILLION Dollars...



Ok…so things are REALLY coming together…but everything hinges on one thing…the pap results. Without these results I shouldn’t start the injections, and without the results I really shouldn't book flights/hotels…because if the results come back abnormal (which, btw, has never happened) then I have to stop everything while we figure it out. Turns out the results take UP TO 6 WEEKS? Um, how does that work out since I’m supposed to be getting the transfer in less than 4? Math doesn’t work.

So…being ME, I decide there has to be a way. Wait shmait I’m going in for the kill…so I get the doctor’s office on the line. No, they cannot do anything for me. Beg beg, plead plead…nope…sorry. So I told her that I would pay her ONE MILLION DOLLARS if she could get me the results…please I am in such a bind here, could you please please see what you can do?? Longest silence ever, followed by a very snarky “call me in one hour!” click. (btw, I am not the slightest bit bothered by snarky at this point, however, I am a little concerned about my financial promise.)

So I call her back and she tells me that they are 6 weeks behind, BUT that she did explain the sitch to the lab coordinator…they have “put my swabs on a slide” (sorry for the visual) and she hopes to call me back today before 4. Its 3:30…

But then there’s that little rule called Murphy. Please be a normal pap…please please please… How much begging does a girl need to do?

Stay tuned…


Update: No call.

so.......... come on, am holding my breath here - what were the results and what's more - are you now officially bankcrupt!

No! Because I didn't have a chance to ante up! I forgot to mention that originally I asked them if I could get a "rush" on the results and they said no. But when I called the other day and spoke with one of the nurses, she said "you should have asked for a ?? pap...its the same thing, costs $90, and you get your results in 2 days.

Thanks for the info. #*^%*$%#!!!

by the way the "comment deleted" was just a duplicate of my own post - I in no way shape or form plan to edit anyone's post - even if you're nasty!!

hey, am I that transparent! How did you know it was your gorgeous cousin posting!! I can't believe you are jetting off to Florida next week and leaving me - and leaving this - what will i read every morning...........

Still, at least you will be injecting yourself in glorious sunshine - that's one plus I guess.

I think I need to be your agent...!
