One morning I woke up with a very sore throat. I
could not swallow without feeling great pain. I told my
mother about it.
She decided that I should skip school that day. She
was going to take me to see a doctor.
At 9 a.m., my mother and I took the bus to town-to
see our family doctor.
We waited for a while at the clinic before I got to
see the doctor. Dr. Lee examined me carefully. I had a
slight fever and other symptoms that indicated that I might
be coming down with influenza. So he gave me an injection
and prescribed some oral medicine for me. He also wrote
me a medical certificate so that I could be absent from
school for a couple of days.
By the time we reached home, my throat was definitely not as sore as it was
before. The injection must be doing its work.
I took the oral medicine diligently and
after two days of rest I was well on my way back to health again.
