Doctor Gives Kindness Treatment

--by Rajni, posted Apr 2, 2019

Tuesday morning my 5 year old woke up and his eye was extremely swollen and red. Like really bad.

I took him to urgent care up the road and after being examined the doctor, she was very concerned. They prescribed antibiotics but said I needed to take him to the ophthalmologist right away. 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.

I have told myself that i want to help people with that when i receive my financial blessing that i am expecting any day. God bless the doctor and most importantly, i hope your son is ok! God bless you.
