[Original testimony in Swedish]

In February, 1928, my husband was suddenly taken ill...

In February, 1928, my husband was suddenly taken ill with violent twinges of pain in the left side of the head. When, after a week, his condition was no better, he consulted an ear specialist, who said there was no defect either with the ears or with the nose which could cause the violent pain. After a few days, when his suffering increased, he was taken to a hospital; but by that time he was unconscious.

In my despair I went to a good friend who is a Christian Scientist. I was interested in Christian Science, though my comprehension of it was not very deep. I was advised to turn to a practitioner, and immediately telephoned to one. She started at once to work for my husband. When I came home I received a telephone message from the hospital to the effect that my husband had had a cerebral hemorrhage during the night, that his left side was paralyed, and that the end was expected at any moment. After this message I immediately telephoned to the practitioner, who comforted me to such an extent that I went to the hospital in a quiet frame of mind. My husband's relatives were present and his passing on seemed imminent. My only clear thought was that there is only Life. My relatives thought me without feeling, and very different from what I generally had been, but I was convinced that my husband would soon recover through Christian Science. He was unconscious for four days, and then there was a period of partial awaking from the torpor, with rather incoherent speech. After the fifteenth day the improvement began to be noticeable, and in another fortnight he left the hospital. After spending three weeks at a convalescent home he resumed his work by degrees, and he has enjoyed good health ever since.

Words cannot express my gratitude towards God and Christian Science for the loving work that the practitioner did for my husband in order to save him.
