#sol16 March 22 A slice of that day

Slice of LIfe  I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March.  You should do it too!  Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing! 

 

that day
that day when your son is sick
sent home
seems like strep again
dr. says watch and wait

that day 
that day when you ask the 
dr. to imagine he weren't a dr.
I hate that rapid strep test
you might have yelled a little bit

that day
that day when you realize you 
have been giving your son the wrong
antibiotic dose
for 3 weeks

that day
that day when you call your mom to tell her 
your horrible mistake
so that she will tell you
it's not big deal, it will be okay

that day
that day when you tell your mom the whole 
stupid antibiotic story
and she is so nice before she says
Do you know where I am?

that day
that day when your mom is at the emergency room
with your grandpa 
being a daughter, and a mom
and you wait to make sure he's okay

that day
that day when feel your own throat 
getting sore
so you eat raw garlic, waiting  
to hear from your mom
