Ok, this may take a while, so only read if you have some time!! I was scheduled for my spinal tap today, Friday, and I got a call from the place that was doing it that the doc wants me to have my MS panel (bloodwork) done at the same time, but they don't draw blood at the facility, they just do the tap, ok, you can draw my spinal fluid but not my blood, whatever. So, while I am at the dentist with my 8 year old who has an abscessed tooth that has infected his entire cheek, they are telling me that I have to have it done at the hospital, YOUR KIDDING ME, why can't I go to the lab before my tap? Oh no, you can't, but you have to take your spinal fluid to the lab after your exam, but you can't have your blood drawn at that time. Am I crazy? So after many many phone calls, they finally decide that after the tap, when I take my fluid (creepy) that I can have my labs done then (imagine that), THEN, yes then, the facility calls me back and tells me that my spot was filled because they werent sure I was going to be able to make it so they scheduled someone else. CAN I CRY NOW!!!! Anyway, my question is this (yes there really is a question in all of this!!!) Did anybody else have to take their fluid to the lab? It seems kinda weird, but maybe thats how is works with this stuff. Thanks for your time!
