Send command question

Is it true that handlers invoked using the Send command are not executed
immediately? That is to say, if I have a script:

Send "myMessage" to fld "Whatever" of cd 2

That cmd2 and cmd3 might be executed before "myMessage" starts executing or
in parallel with myMessage? I haven't been able to confirm this myself but I
am running into issues which suggest to me that this might be the case. Does
anyone know for sure? Are there conditions in which the Send command behaves
differently than calling a handler in the usual fashion (excluding the send
in #ofticks option)? Thanks in advance,
