Description Love and Grief and was glad news for me. This was the summit of her recovery; from then she began to fail but did not let me know. I don't think she realized it. However, I saw it on my return after two week's absence. I had hoped that it would be otherwise after I had taken the responsibility of the home off her hands. But she failed daily, and she passed through another very severe illness. But this time a true diagnosis of her trouble was gained and after a month in the hospital we brought her home to make the second fight back to health, planning to have an operation for goiter as soon as she had sufficiently gained her health. We again nursed her back to the point of health, but an epidemic of flu was very bad at this time, and doctors were running night and day. She began to get bad and it was days before we were able to secure medical aid. Then the fight began again. She was put to bed and consultation doctors were brought, but they decided that she was not strong enough to stand surgery. The last one, Dr. Hewlett of San Francisco, prescribed large doses of digitalis until we got her pulse below eighty, then to take her to the Lane Stanford Medical Hospital in San Francisco to have X-Ray treatment? We treated her until the desired effect was attained and telephoned the doctor. He said he would have to leave for ten days or two weeks, but to bring her on his return. By the end of that time we had lost all we had gained, but we took her and made the attempt. The X-Ray brought no results. How her splendid fighting spirit is shown when we placed her in the auto to take her to the City. She said, "This is an adventure." Now I must tell the story of her death. From our home it was a two hour ride to get to the hospital. I went daily and took little notes of love and hope from each of the children 0 According to Dr. Morris Fishbein, a well-known writer on medical sub- jects for both professional and lay consumption "the most damaging type of goiter is the relatively small [thyroid] gland with rapidly developing evidences of toxicity . . . . In certain areas . . . absence of iodine in water and soil gives rise to numerous goiters in which cancer develops . . . . Treatment of cancer by X-rays . . . began as recently as 1895 ."
