The Impatient Patient

Pinky came down with a cold.
First, we went to the ER
in the middle of the night.
Then we talked to another doctor
who did the acupuncture.
Then we went to the chiropractor.
Pinky kept me up late again and again,
Why can’t I get better?
Just be patient Pinky and let yourself get better.
I’m not used to being sick.
You are doing everything you can do, just be patient Pinky.
Why can’t I get better?
Everything will be OK, Pinky. Don’t worry.
I don’t like lying here.
I don’t like being feeble.
OK, Pinky. Just let me hold you for a minute.
Pinky wormed a second blood test out of her doctor.
She was happy about that and felt better.
