One of the dangers of the internet and its impact on our health care system is now you can go online to look at your medical test results. I went to the doctor on Monday and had some tests done. I looked up the results today and all my results except for one fall within the standard test ranges. The one that did not was my hemoglobin count that tested higher than the range.
Given my hypochondriac nature I of course immediately concluded I'm going to die of high hemoglobin. Maybe it's a silent killer. If I was feeling better I'd probably be all riled up but I don't have the energy. So I'll wait until the doctor contacts me to help me know what the test results really mean.
A friend forwarded me this article from the New York Times. Given my logic for the number of cats in my house I've often told friends I'm on my way to being one of those people that they find living with 200 cats. I'm not sure if the tests they did on Monday would detect this 'cat lady' parasite or not....
P.S. Our local weather forecast calls for 5 to 7 inches of snow over the next 24 hours. Blippin %$^!!!!!
