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

July 14, 1943 – Wednesday

“Well a big day for me.  Clamped gas mask on me at 7:05 a.m. – two deep breaths and I went out.  Was on table until 9:30.  Harley & Jerrie came in but I wasn’t awake, woke up at 1 p.m.  They and Carl came back at 6:30 p.m.  Boy oh boy was I hot and hard to breathe.  However after getting rid of the ether (which they had to give me after the gas) I felt pretty well. Not much pain. Gave me pure oxygen every hour until 6 a.m. Thurs.  Fed me thru the arm.  Sure a long night.  Awake every hour.
