Shortly after my marriage I became ill with a kidney and bladder infection, painful enlargements of the throat glands, and an irregular heartbeat. Twice a week I was catheterized for the infection, only to learn after a year and a half of this treatment that the infection was worsening. When this started to occur, the doctor gave me the verdict that I would eventually be confined to a wheelchair.

Around that time it became necessary for my husband to go on a business trip. Because I was on a special diet and was required to rest one hour before and after meals, my husband asked a friend of his to stay with me. She was a Christian Scientist, and I attended my first Wednesday testimony meeting in a branch church with her. It was a large city church, and every minute of the time allotted for testimonies was filled.
