I shall always be grateful for my first healing in Christian Science

I shall always be grateful for my first healing in Christian Science. During my last year in high school I experienced occasional attacks of pain in my right side, but since the attacks were not prolonged or severe, I gave them little attention. At that time I was attending a Christian Science Sunday School, where I had learned to rely on God for healing, but I did no specific work to heal this condition.

One morning I had a severe attack, sharp and painful, and I was unable to get out of bed. I thought of my relationship to God as His child, and applied other truths that I had learned in Sunday School, and in a short time the pain subsided. My uncle and aunt, with whom I was then living and who were not Scientists, desired that I be examined by a physician. The tests indicated appendicitis, and an operation was recommended. I informed the doctor that I was a Christian Scientist, and that regardless of the tests I intended to rely on Christian Science for healing.
