Title Basket of Chips, page 142
Description A Basket of Chips MY HOSPITAL EXPERIENCE A year ago on the fifth of February she asked me, "What happened seven years ago today?" I thought for awhile, then shook my head. She said, "It was with you." Then I remem- bered my hospital operation, a case of hernia? What an experience it is to face that ordeal. To know some- thing is wrong, go to your doctor, have the examination and find there is to be an operation. The return home and meet the family. First to tell Her, and find she had anticipated what was coming and had planned what they would do in my absence. Then how dear everyone was to me. I was to be there at eight o'clock and that meant for us to leave before daylight. How strong and brave she was. There by my side when I lost consciousness. I can see her now with her look of courage. And when I came out of the ether an hour later she was there at my side in my room. How glad I was to see her! And then the days that followed! To think and watch for the hour when she and the children would visit me. I think now of the day they all came to visit me. We had decided to buy an auto if all went well. So Ruth turned the bed into an auto and at the foot became the chauffeur. She honked, speeded, and did all the imaginary stunts which made it a very jolly afternoon. Then came the day for my return and there never was such a day. And their love and care for me during the following two weeks was so beautiful. I think that time was the most blessed of my life until our experience in California, and then it was my turn to serve a loved one. MORE FRAGMENTS I do feel a reproach for myself for not being more talkative. On arriving home after my day's teaching she would ask me for news. 1s This would place the operation on February 5, 1914. 142
