 Lab Rat
 As I get older, I find that I have to get a lot of labo- ratory work done to coincide with all my doctor and health appointments. Luckily, there are two major local companies that handle this: Clinical Labs of Ha- wai‘i and Diagnostic Laboratory Services. Full disclosure, the president of Clinical Labs is a friend of mine through a mutual dear friend who had passed a couple of years ago.
Both companies have facilities spread out across the state, so it’s super convenient as there’s always a handful of labs near where you live. But the demand for their services seems to have quadrupled, especially with the need of testing ser- vices and bloodwork required by physicians.
I recently had to have a full blood workup performed before my annual checkup with my primary care doctor. I indiscriminately chose a lab close to my workplace so I could stop by before I headed into my office.
As I walked up to the lab, there were lots of people wait- ing outside. I had to pull a number from the rack that was right in front of the entry door. It’s almost like grabbing a number at Baskin-Robbins on a hot summer day — you’re probably looking at high double digits. I was pleasantly sur- prised that I pulled the number “3.” I had struck the waiting- in-line lottery! That’s when a technician came out and called the next number to be served: 35. I then realized the highest number is 50 before they go all the way back to 1.
                                                     Since I had to get to work, I couldn’t wait. I decided to return at lunchtime. Well, about 30 people probably had the same idea, so I chose to come back just before they closed. Again, there were the equivalent of two baseball teams ahead of me in line. Not wanting to play the waiting game again, I found a lab in Mililani that opens at 5 a.m. Surely I could get up early in order to avoid a line that rivals the ticket line for a Bruno Mars concert.
            Sure enough, the next morning I walked through the doors of the lab and after checking in was directed to one of the rooms to draw my blood. The phlebotomist was very friend- ly and was bringing my information up on her computer. I rolled up my sleeve getting ready for the needle when suddenly the power went out. In darkness, their team went through some kind of emergency protocol. I went back into the waiting room while they assessed the situation.
          They announced that they called Hawaiian Electric and that the power was out across part of Mililani and not likely restored for another hour. I decided I couldn’t wait. That meant I wasted a perfectly good 12-hour fast. I hate it when that happens.
