DiarySee this post for more information about my Grandmother’s diary.

July 1, 1943 – Thursday

” Went to Dr for complete examination.  Have felt bad lately.  I guess the goiter is mostly my trouble.  Blood tested mostly white corpuscles.  Came back and went to work.  Took a Wassermann test so have to go back next Wed to see how it comes out.

Not sure why they were doing a Wassermann test…I did a little research on this test use during the 1940s  and found it was primarily used to determine syphilis.
