Day after day I sit and listen to the news or read the news or watch the news. And almost every day there is news about educating people how to take better care of themselves and what signs to look for. We are urged to go to a doctor, do not try to make your own diagnosis, because so many times people make the mistake of treating what turns out to be a serious problem with home remedies. And it sometimes leads to death. We are told to go to a doctor, do not take matters of this sort into your own hands.
But what if you see the warning and you go to the doctor for two days straight with chest discomfort, rapid heartbeat, not feeling good. And each day the doctor says, ''Oh, its only gas, go home, take some Mylanta.'' You are told this even after reporting that the doctor the day before told you the same thing and it has not helped.
On the third day, the same problem was no better and we went to another hospital emergency room only to be told in an instant: Your child is a very sick little girl. Are you just getting her to a doctor?'' After hearing the story about the two previous days, they couldn't believe that the child who is now near death was not diagnosed, but was sent home.
