It was his gall bladder. That’s what landed Daddy in the hospital and ended his chance to go overseas with a field hospital. He will stay in the United States. But, Mommy wrote today, “I am very uneasy. You mentioned a doubt as to whether we will be able to join you.” Mommy has been talking a friend whose husband, also a doctor, just came home from a tour of duty in New Guinea. “If there’s anything to what Gladys says,” she wrote, “you’ll be doing the hospital circuit for quite a while… But there’s really nothing to do but wait and see. I’m not good at that sort of thing but I’ll try. If you can do it, so can I.”
Light the Sabbath candles.
