It is forty years since I first...

It is forty years since I first heard of Christian Science and began to know God aright. We lived in a small town in West Virginia. One night when our youngest child was six months old, I went to take him up, and I found that he was rigid. The doctor came, and eventually the baby came out of this spell; but in about four weeks he had another, and these spells continued until he was seven years old. He grew in height, but he was very thin and had no control of his muscles. He had never been able to walk or stand, and at times we could not understand what he said. He had to be taken care of like a baby.

Then one October he did not come out of the spell. In December the insurance company sent two doctors to take him to Baltimore for care, but when they saw the condition he was in they would not take him. Our doctor told my husband that the child was dying.
