45. Alice's Body Cast


My oldest sister Alice had a serious back operation, and she was in a body cast for a year in the camp hospital. I visited her often, and gave her alcohol baths. Dad had talked to the camp doctors, and had Alice leave her two small children with her husband and grandparents in Idaho. He wanted her to come to Poston for the operation, since the doctors she went to in Idaho had not been able to correctly diagnose her illness, tuberculosis of the spine.
