Ten Minutes for Mom

I called my doctor last Monday morning and got his answering machine.  Most people who don’t have urgent care near them and aren’t sick enough for the emergency room wait with scrapes and sniffles and coughs over the weekend to see their primary care doctor on Monday.  So I wasn’t surprised I had to leave a message.  My case wasn’t urgent to me.  I just wanted to make an appointment to talk to my doctor about some pain in the back of my head, an eye twitch that had been going on for a week and numbness in the right side of my face.  So I was shocked when, a few hours later, I got a call from the nurse, telling me she’d talked to the doctor about my message, and he wanted me to go to the emergency room.  Right then.
