Pelvis injury healed by mental means alone

I should like to express my heartfelt gratitude for a healing I experienced through the help of Christian Science. One Sunday in February, 1947, I was going home late in the evening and slipped on the icy street, falling on my left hip. Some passers-by lifted me up, and because walking proved impossible, the carried me home. A friend telephoned to a practitioner, and help was given at once. The next morning the practitioner visited me, and because there was no Christian Science nurse available and I needed physical care, we deemed it advisable to call in a doctor to make an examination. He came that same afternoon and advised me to have an X ray made, which was done the following day and showed that the condylus had penetrated the pelvis and was held in it. This condition needed a surgeon's care and would probably need treatment with the use of a stretching apparatus. It took the doctor several days to make the necessary arrangements, and on Friday my friends wanted to telephone him, but I told them I was not in a hurry and wanted to await God's time.

In the meantime Christian Science work was carried on conscientiously by both the practitioner and me, and I began to see something of the reality of true being, with the result that when the doctor called on Saturday, I was able to tell him that there was great improvement. All the pain was gone, and whereas at first even the touch of the sheets had caused considerable pain, I now could move my ankle and knee joints freely. Moreover, the left leg was not shorter than the right one, as had been expected.
