One afternoon our boy, then five years of age, climbed up in the window to watch a gentleman who was painting. The window screen had been left unhooked by someone, and when the boy leaned against the screen it gave way, and he fell from the second-story window, striking his head on the brick pavement. A friend picked him up and took him to the hospital.
I was downtown at the time, but reached home shortly after, and on being told where the boy was, I called a practitioner. When I arrived at the hospital they told me they were preparing the boy for an X-ray examination, but the doctor who had been called before I arrived felt sure an operation would be necessary. It was about an hour, however, after the practitioner had been called before the X-ray picture was taken, and very much to the doctor's surprise it showed that an operation would not be necessary.
The boy's father, who at that time was just becoming interested in Christian Science, wanted to leave him in the hospital, and not until the next day was he willing that the boy should be taken home. The doctor said he had no chance to recover; he had lost a considerable amount of blood, and the shock was so severe he could not get well; and it was only a matter of a few hours! When the doctor was informed that we were going to take the boy home, he told the father that it would be death at once to try to move the child. We called the ambulance, took him home and laid him on the bed; and in twenty minutes he opened his eyes and said, "Hello, mother; can I have a piece of watermelon?" Up to this time he had been unconscious. This occurred on Thursday afternoon. On Sunday he sat up in bed and played with his toys; on Monday he was dressed, walked downstairs, and went next door and played awhile with his playmate; and each day after that was at his play.
