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. “
