my 5 year old woke up and his eye was extremely swollen and red.
I took him to urgent care up the road
and after being examined by the doctor, she was very concerned.
They prescribed [en]antibiotics
The one in my town didn’t have any same day appointments
but they were able to get me into one about 45 min away.
I was already holding back tears
because I was scared for my son.
My gas tank was on E
and I don’t get paid until the 3rd.
I completely lost it
and told the nurse what was going on.
I said I had to call some people
and ask to borrow some gas money
but I would get him there somehow.
A minute later
the doctor came in and handed me 20$
so we could get to the appointment.
It was just so touching.
I'm going to bring her a card with the 20$ on the 3rd.
She never said I needed to pay her back
but I just want her to know how much the kindness she showed meant to me.
