Dr. C thought she heard a heart murmur, so she sent me to see Dr. B (cardiologist) and get an electrocardiogram. Thankfully, that turned out to be a false alarm. I saw Dr. H (rheumatologist), who checked me out and was not sure what to make of my symptoms. I also saw Dr. M1 (infectious disease specialist). Upon hearing that I have visited over 80 countries, Dr. M1 ordered every test possible for every disease I could have possibly contracted in every country I had stepped foot. In each of my 3 blood collections for Dr. M1, they took enough vials of blood to place me near the record number taken by each phlebotomist. I’m super competitive, so I was kinda bummed I didn’t set the record, to be honest.
Maybe I picked up a bug from this great white shark in South Africa?
There must be a blood test for that, and I really want AFBT (Another F-ing Blood Test).

Well, yeah of course you wanna be a record holder! But the ONLY time you want to hear you’re unremarkable is when you’re hearing about your lab test. Right?
Yes, MAPB (Master Apple Pie Baker), I’m living for that day 🙂
