EFFECTS OF AN ACCIDENT HEALED
In the meantime I had called a loving Christian Science practitioner, who promptly said she would be with us in a short time. She came as the doctor was leaving, and worked faithfully until past midnight. At ten o'clock we were able to notify the physician that the child was resting quietly. He responded, "That is good; she has a chance to live." In the morning she knew us and called us by name. Later, when the practitioner came again, she was able to repeat the Lord's Prayer with her. I shall not mention all the ugly symptoms of this case. However, there are two that I feel should be spoken of. The head from the left temple across the top was soft, so that when she bent over, it would fall loosely over her forehead; and the left limb, from the hip down, was helpless. By the end of the first week she was able to retain her food and walk about the house. The healing was complete in three weeks. The accident occurred on the Tuesday before Easter, and she was able to return to school the second week after Easter, having lost only nine days of school.
Words are inadequate to express our gratitude for this healing. We know that only by willing obedience to the teachings of the Bible and our Leader's writings can we show true appreciation for this comforting, healing truth.
