I am my best advocate

So after some thought, I did not get my blood drawn on Saturday.  Instead, I waited till Monday and requested that they add in the test for MTHFR.  Which they did.  So later that afternoon I had 5 vials of blood drawn; one for each test.  We'll have our appointment to get the results on 1/25 and maybe we'll have some answers.

Good for you. I am so glad you waited and asked for the extra test. Sometimes we have to be our own advocates - which, for the amount we are paying these doctors - is kind of sad. But I am so glad you asked for it.

I am hoping that the results will give you some answers.

I'm so glad you pushed to get the tests you believe you needed and I hope you get some actionable results. Still thinking of you and sending you prayers. ((HUGS))

Go you! I hope the tests will bring some new light.

I've been absent for so long and just thought to check up, can't believe what has happened to you in all this time but i'm glad you're moving forward.
I do hope you get some answers.
Big hugs
