I am so happy to know that Christian Science is healing...

I am so happy to know that Christian Science is healing organic as well as functional diseases. Our son was afflicted with heart trouble from early childhood. His case was diagnosed by three well-known specialists. He was confined to his bed for months at a time. Gradually he became weaker, and there was a complication of dropsy. Tapping was resorted to several times. The kidneys became inactive, and the result was uraemic poisoning which affected the brain. The physician did all that he could to relieve the suffering. He said the condition of the heart was such that the boy could live only a short time.

A neighbor came in at a time when I was very much discouraged. She seemed surprised that I did not turn to God in my time of need, and told me of some wonderful healings that had taken place in her family. The next evening the doctor was called earlier than usual, as the suffering was extreme. He told us that nothing more could be done for the buy; that he could not possibly live until morning. The outlook was dark. The Christian Science practitioner of whom the neighbor had spoken was called over long-distance telephone. In a very few minutes the extreme suffering ceased, and at twelve o'clock the boy was sleeping peacefully. Ours was a happy household. When he awoke in the morning there was a great change; organs that had not functioned for several days began to act normally.

When the nurse from the insurance company called, she was told that her services were not needed. She said that we were entertaining false hopes, as she understood the nature of the case, and it was incurable. I was convinced that God could heal the disease.
