My parents gave their family a great inheritance

My parents gave their family a great inheritance. They lived the statement "Only through radical reliance on Truth can scientific healing power be realized" (Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 167). As I was growing up, there were healings of pneumonia, of injuries from an automobile accident, and of childhood diseases.

In my own family there was one particular healing that took time and patience. Our son had a skin condition on his ankles that caused great discomfort. It was so severe that bandages had to be applied by a Christian Science nurse. We had help from Christian Science practitioners from time to time, and we did a lot of praying, but the condition remained. Finally, our son needed a medical examination to be on the high-school tennis team. The skin problem was diagnosed as chronic, and a doctor gave him a medicated cream to relieve the discomfort. He decided to try the cream, and the condition cleared up briefly, only to return in a more severe form.
