As we were new in Science and were living temporarily with my father's parents, who were not Christian Scientists, a doctor was called. My mother grew steadily worse, and after she had been in a coma for several days the doctor said that she was dying and that there was nothing more he could do.

My father called our former neighbor and asked for Christian Science help. Through absent treatment my mother was completely healed. With the healing came a definite turning point in our lives. Since that time Christian Science has been our only religion, and God has been our only Physician.
