One evening I suffered a great loss of blood and was in a very weakened condition. That evening and for several days I was in bed, and fear tried to say that I was afraid to go to sleep. But in Isaiah we read (41:10), "Fear thou not; for I am thy God: I thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." These words comforted me. A practitioner gave much prayerful support, and my family were a wonderful help, reading to me the Lesson-Sermon, outlined in the Quarterly, the writings of Mrs. Eddy, and the periodicals.

So with this great love of the family and the great love for Christian Science, I found myself absolutely upheld and strong. At the end of the several days I was healed, and physical strength was displayed by the ability to play a better game of tennis than ever before. This experience proved an opportunity to grow in grace.
