Not Cool!!!!

So, last night I emailed about my test results and have pretty much gotten the run-around.  My doc told me about the myopathy, but I knew that already from the EMG doctor.  My genetic tests have been "held."  My neurologist told me to schedule a follow-up ASAP.  So, I did.  ASAP is July. I emailed him back and pointed out - dude, July.  And asked what "held" meant.  
"Held," for those of you wondering, means, "I'll tell you when you come in for your appointment."  He also said he'll try to expedite my appointment.  He damn well better.  I have to figure refusing to tell me unless I'm there in person is probably not happy, wonderful, you-have-rainbows-and-unicorns-coming-out-of-your-ass type news.  I am not sitting here for two months wondering what the hell is going on.  We played that game after the spinal tap last year and I AM NOT doing it again.
There was no mention of the MRI results.  Also, still no superpowers.

It totally sucks that you might have to wait so long for a follow-up, hopefully not.
I just finished reading about your marathon MRI...I don't know if I could have gotten through it as well (and with as much humour) as you!

I also wanted to mention that I love how you write your posts....feels more like a chat over tea than a "blog".
Hang in there! hugs

Thanks so much for the good wishes! I figure as long as I can find something to crack jokes about I'm still mostly okay. And I'm glad the conversational tone to my writing here is coming through! Thanks again!!
