No news is ... not horrible news?

I still don't have my results, but now I am operating under the theory that the longer they take to get back to me, the less horrible the results have to be. Last December, when I got some "bad" numbers, I got a call from the doctor himself less than 24 hours after I had the blood drawn. This is never a good thing. You don't want test results that make your doctor spit out his/her coffee and sprint to the phone. You want results that are so boring that they're set aside and left for somebody else to call you later, once all of the coffee-spit stains from the other, sicker patients are all cleaned up.

Anyway. I just left a message. I was told a nurse would call me. I think I'll go lie down in front of the Tivo.
