Still, It would have fit the narrative nicely to have it end with him getting a call from the doctor, or word from the doctor that he did have it. My guess is that he didn't or else it would have been included.
aside: If you reply to someone, you'll want to hit "reply" below their comment so that they see your reply. I just happened to check back and see that you posted this comment, otherwise I would not have known.
When you do have a reply you should get an email notification and the "wheel" in the upper right corner should turn orange. Click on it to see all notifications. Hope this helps.
