My little five years old boy, Joseph, was trying hard to sleep in his bed in the night. He had a high fever that was like a needle waking him up every second. It was a long battle between Joseph and his fever. Finally, he succeeded in falling asleep for a few minutes.
Suddenly, Joseph screamed loudly, people could hear his voice clearly from outside the house. He said in a terrified voice" I can not see! ." His complaining was a like a big stone had hit my brain. The whole world stopped for a second. I found him trying to use his hand to guide him to walk outside the room. His eyes looked normal, but he could not see anything. I couldn't decide, whether I should call the doctor or succor him first?.
I called his doctor and immediately she scheduled an emergency appointment for him. I jumped in my car carrying him on my arm. Rapidly I turned on my car. My heart was beating so hard that I could feel it as I steered the car. It was a dark and stormy night. The traffic was congested, and it took forever for the red signal to turn green. I was on the phone with the doctor while simultaneously, talking to Joseph in the back. I tried to give Joseph his favorite toy, but he couldn't see it. Finally, I reached the doctor's street. After I turned right quickly, I didn't see the gate. Mistakenly, I missed the doctor's entrance. I cried because I knew that it will take longer to turn back into that crowded street.
Before I turned my car back, swiftly, Joseph screamed: "mom you just missed the doctor's entrance." Now Joseph can see!. at that moment, my heart started to beat regularly. After we reached to the doctor's office, the doctor was waiting for us in the reception room. The doctor lifted him out off my arm to examine him.
The doctor gave him the fever medicine. After the doctor examined Joseph's eyes; she decided that he doesn't need to go to the emergency room. Joseph started to calm down. the fever started to decrease.
Joseph's temperature became close to normal. The doctor wrote him a prescription medicine to stay on for three days. Joseph said that he felt better. Finally, everyone could relax.
