One day in February, 1970, while I was painting a picture, I became ill. I couldn't move, and so I called help. The manager of the residence where I live heard me, summoned help, and I was carried to my room and put into bed. Evidently I had had a stroke.

Being a student of Christian Science for over fifty-four years, I knew only a right understanding of God was needed, as He is my Life and is ever present. In addition to prayerful treatment by a Christian Science practitioner, I had physical care from a woman my family summoned, a devout Christian Scientist, who stayed with me for fifteen days, helping and ministering to my needs. No medication was used. I live in a home where all of the residents are Christian Scientists. Within a few days feeling came into my hands and then into my arms.
