Moira is 11 years old. One Sunday afternoon her belly hurt and she had a fever. It got worse during the night. In the morning, the pediatrician wanted to see her straight away.
After his examination, he said she probably had an appendicitis. Moira was immediately sent to the surgeon, but she was told to stop at the laboratory to get blood tests done first.
When she got to the lab there were 20 people ahead of her. Her mother told the receptionist that Moira's appendix may have ruptured and she needed the lab work done now. She was taken back immediately, had blood drawn, and then went to see the surgeon.
The surgeon sent Moira to the hospital and performed surgery within the hour. Moira's appendix had ruptured, but she eventually recovered.
