Easy English listening Lesson 71 – The Doctor

I didn’t feel very well last week. 
I had a sore throat and a fever. 
My mother took me to see the doctor. 
When we got there, the nurse took my name and said that the doctor would be with me soon. 
The doctor was a very nice man in a white jacket. 
I had seen the doctor before when I had my tonsils out at the hospital. 
The doctor took a light and looked in my ears. 
He put a stick on my tongue, and he shone his light into my mouth. 
He looked at my throat. 
He said that my throat was a bit swollen and red. 
He felt my neck and said that my glands were swollen. 
He took my temperature and said that it was quite high. 
He listened to my heart, and he made me cough. 
He asked me some questions. 
He said that he might have to do some tests. 
He sent me to get some blood taken out of my arm. 
I was scared, but it didn’t really hurt. 
The doctor gave me some pills and told me to take one in the morning and one at night. 
He told me to drink a lot of fluids. 
He told me to get plenty of sleep. 
I did exactly what the doctor told me to do. 
It wasn’t very long before I was feeling well again. 
I think that I might like to be a doctor when I grow up. 
I would like to make people feel better.
