Gratitude for the miraculous healing of my son prompts me to write this testimony. Although I had studied Christian Science for several years, when my son became suddenly ill with appendicitis I sent for a doctor, who ordered him to a hospital immediately. The operation was performed (the appendix has ruptured), and although the condition was a very serious one, he pulled through. For a time he seemed to be getting along nicely; then complications arose. After he had been in the hospital eight weeks, the doctor told me that my son was losing ground, and he seemed to have grave doubts of the boy's recovery. Transfusion seemed the only recourse.

My son had attended the Christian Science Sunday School when he was small, and had never had medical attention before. I had had some Christian Science help for him during this time. He begged me to take him home and have a practitioner help him. This I decided to do. I consulted the practitioner again to know how to proceed. She told me of a Christian Science nurse whom I could get to attend to his physical needs, as the incision was in a terrible condition. I had him taken by ambulance to my daughter's house, which is only a few blocks from the hospital.
