A Lab Mistake!
0

11 posts in this topic

Hello gluten-free friends!!!

It turns out that the lab THREW OUT my brother's blood sample. :angry: Because he and my father share the same first name (sr./jr. business), the techs got confused and decided we already had the results. He is donating again tomorrow! He's got a long way to go before he becomes the Human Plasma factory like me.

The drama continues!!!

Wow, to think that they threw the specimen out! I feel sorry for your brother. I can imagine how he felt. I would be very upset if that happened to me and somebody would defintely hear about it.

Gretchen--

Sorry I haven't kept in touch with this post! I've just gone back to college and classes have started this week. I am, however, frequently checking this supportive forum :)

My brother was re-tested Friday morning. Hopefully the lab will follow through and have the results back in a week.

Take care,

No need to apoligize, Jill! I saw you logged on, so I thought I'd ask :D I got some diagnosis tests on Saturday afternoon and they had my test results already (actually, I think they called on Monday... but I didn't call them back because there was no way the lab was that quick).. they really were that quick!

Great about your classes starting.. hope your semester goes well.
