About seven years ago, very shortly before a child was born I was suffering from a form of kidney disease called dangerous, accompanied by vomiting of an unusual type. I had planned to go to a maternity hospital near me, and when I was visiting there the doctor in charge became alarmed and insisted that I remain there for them to watch the case.

They offered me little encouragement and told me my life depended upon obeying their orders. I refused to remain, and on reaching home became very ill. I was very weak, not having taken any solid food in months, and was not able to swallow a spoonful of water without intense suffering. I felt that I was dying when I called for a Christian Science practitioner and nurse that night. I was asked to choose my physician and was led to one who has the deepest respect for Christian Science. He said he found everything as the hospital had reported, but he would depend upon Christian Science to correct the troubles. It was presumed I had three weeks for treatment in Science before confinement. During the first days the nurse called the practitioner many times a day, saying, "Work immediately." In a few minutes I would be at peace, and the vomiting was gradually overcome. When I could take a cup of water in my hands and drink, I felt it was truly a cup of cold water in Christ's name. In a few days I let the nurse go and was about the house.
