“Harley brought me home and cooked me a big steak.  I was drooling at the mouth before it was done and did I eat!  First meal since I left for hospital as no one could live on the meals they serve.  No meat, no coffee.  I drank coffee too.  Harley woke me up at 1:30 when he came home to tell me he got a new rating.  2nd class fitter.  Sure was tickled.

G-ma Ruth’s Diary – July 17, 1943

July 17, 1943 – Saturday

“Well as this is a 7 day advent hospital it is the Sabbath today.  Put me in a wheelchair and pulled myself around some.  Jerrie, Leonard & youngsters came to see me.  Sure was good to get out of that bed.  Sure hot.  Have heard some beautiful music and chimes with Hawaiian guitar.

Adventist Health St. Helena is the oldest Seventh-day Adventist hospital in the United States. 

Jerrie is my grandmother’s step-daughter.  Leonard is her husband.  And the “youngsters” their children.
