Ashley got sick since the weather was getting colder.

At first, she only had a runny nose. Then, she started to cough.

She didn’t go to see a doctor, because she thought she could wait.

She thought she could get over it just by drinking hot water and getting more rest.
However, things didn’t get better as she had expected them to.

She kept coughing more and more.

She felt very sick as if she would cough her lungs out.

Therefore, her parents took her to the doctor right away before it got even worse.
