In my experience, when I am asked to go places after their normal business hours it is because something more urgent is going on. Last time I had to go somewhere on the fly, it was spine center after hours because of my xrays and blood work. Noone would tell me over the phone what was going on. Also, happened again when my teeth crumbled out come to think of it. Same thing, tests were ordered after hours and I had to meet the endocrinologist after business hours the next day. Both times it was rather urgent. But, noone would tell me in over the phone what was going on. So, if there is anyway at all to get the MRI done, I would do it. Or contact them and ask for after hours on thursday.
As far as your husband... I too had this problem. I had to re-sign papers with the hospital every year for all the doctors to be able to communicate and share information freely amongst each other. Also for my husbands HR, Insurance carrier, and my husband. At some point, I mentioned the hassle in passing to my lawyer. He drew up papers for everyone to be able to communicate freely until I said "no.". Now only people I have to re sign paperwork for is the insurance carrier to be able to request documents from the hospital. So, you can do it via the hospital as they have all the forms for "yearly approval" or you can go through family lawyer and get it permanently done.
I sure hope you are able to re schedual. I hope you can relax a bit tonight, I can imagine you are probably a little frazzled, to say the least. I hope you can get ahold of them and reschedual. You are in our hearts and prayers!
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
