Good Morning Doctor! - Chapter 40

I Beg Your Pardon!

It was during my early years of practice that I was called to attend a confinement. I was urged to hurry so I rushed to the place without delay.

Knocking on the door, I was ushered in by the maid who took my hat and coat and motioned me into the dimly lighted sitting room. There on the couch lay a woman. I sat down by her.

"And how often are your pains coming now?" I asked.

She sat bolt upright and in a voice that would have frozen icicles anywhere, she answered, "I beg your pardon. I am the school teacher who boards here. The patient is upstairs."
