Hidden Messages


UPDATE: It was nothing... thanks for the positive thoughts:-)

This is one of those things that has me all worked up, probably for nothing. Writing it out usually makes me feel better, so here goes.
Last night I took Natalee to her 15 month well check (she is a super healthy kid, yay!). I get to the car and have a message left at 6pm. This is what it says: "Hi Lindsey, this is Mary from Dr. B's office. Could you give me a call back in the morning please?" Here is what I heard: "Hi Lindsey, it's the doctor's office, you've got a deadly disease, please call me back right away." So, I'm all freaked out and trying to figure out what I could be dying of. My husband is out of town but tries to calm me down over the phone. I settle down finally… it's most likely nothing, or something totally insignificant.
The office opens at 7:30, I start calling at 7:30, but the answering service answers until 8:30. So I wait for the longest hour ever. I finally get a human on the phone, it goes something like this:
Me: "I was told to call back in the morning, could I please speak with Mary."
Receptionist: "Mary & Dr. B aren't in on Tuesday's, could I take a message?"
Me: "She called at 6pm last night and said something was wrong, I was told to call back in the morning."
Receptionist: "She left a message that something was wrong?"
Me: "Do they call when something isn't?"
Receptionist: Silence… "Point taken. I'll have them call you tomorrow, and I'll tell them that you're anxious to hear back."
Oh, well… that makes it all better doesn't it? I guess the fact that she didn't say to come in right away or something like that makes it a little less ominous. My overreaction ability is in full force today and I'm imagining all the horrible things I will hear. Most likely I will hear something like: "The lab spilled your blood, can you come in again?" or "Did you want me to call in a new prescription for birth control?" and then I will feel 1) relieved 2) like a jerk for being all angry and 3) totally stupid for getting so worked up.
OK, end of rant for today… In other news, I'm going to see an orthodontist today, I had braces for like 7 years as a kid (no lie), isn't that enough torture for one lifetime? Hopefully the answer there is: "I can fix that super easy, super cheap & totally pain free!" Here's to hopingJ

Goodness, that sounds nerve wracking! I'm sure it's no big deal, but do blog to let us know.
