A Trip to the Emergency Room
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 "Mom!" shrieked Jacob as he ran into the house with his hand covering his eye.
2 Mom came running into the front room. "What happened?" she asked with concern and anxiety.
3 Between sobs, Jacob did his best to explain. "I was using a hammer to smash rocks. Something flew up into my eye!"
4 "Oh, my," said Mom. "We'd better get you to the emergency room. Come on."
5 Mom grabbed her purse and car keys off the kitchen counter. They headed quickly to the car and drove to the hospital in town.
6 As they entered the emergency services department, a nurse met them. "How can we help you?"
7 "My son was smashing rocks with a hammer and something got into his eye," said Mom.
8 "O.K. Let's go right over here and get you checked in so you can see the doctor," said the nurse.
9 They sat at a desk and answered a few questions. Then the nurse told them to have a seat while she found a room for them. A few minutes later, they were led to an examination room. Before long, a doctor came in to check on Jacob.
10 "Hi, I'm Dr. Langley. What happened?"
