A sick child is never fun. But it happens.

When Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin’s two children woke up sick, she took them to the doctor. She has health insurance, and expected it to be a fairly quick visit. But, that quick visit turned into a stressful day as she hunted down the antibiotics her kids needed.

Cronise McLaughlin shared her frustrations on Twitter and we turned it into audio. To listen, click on the player above or scroll down to read the Twitter thread.

If you’ve seen a good thread on Twitter that you’d like to hear on air, tweet it to us, @Marketplace.
