Title A Miracle Operation
Description you tried Dr. Brooks, the new Doctor in Ephraim?' Dr. Brooks was called, told what had happened and to every one's surprise, without hesitation, he said that he could come and bring his nurse with him. Than he asked. 'Is there a place we can perform an operation?' "It was decided that the dining room in the hotel would be the best place." The nurse then told her story: "1 was that nurse. It look the doctor and I forty-five minutes to gather our instruments and travel the seven miles to Manti. When we arrived. Tom had been moved to the Hotel, clean sheets had been put on one of the long tables, and Tom had been laid on "The curious onlookers were asked to leave the room but as many as could crowded around the big windows to watch.

She was not as upset as he had expected, but said, 'He'll be all right, because my sister Martha (who had died a few months before) just told me that he would get better.' "He did fully recover. He graduated from BYU, married and had two sons. He helped build many homes, repaired rock on the Manti Temple, and did the rock work on the auxiliary building on the Temple Hill. Many fireplaces were constructed by him. Tom contracted all kinds of cement works throughout the state. He assisted Dad in building a house for Aunt Hattie and Emma.
