Monday April 23 1934 . Well I had a great time of it yesterday. I felt pretty rotten on Saturday and Sunday about one o’clock I got the most terrible pains. Boy I thought I was passing out. Dr. McIntire came about 6:30 and another doctor came about 8. They decided it was appendicitis but I wouldn’t have to be operated on me (sic) just now. He came again at noon to-day. (Doc McIntire) He said that he didn’t get me last night but he’d get me yet. Wasn’t that cheerful of him? He actually said I could have something to eat and if that stayed down I could have a good supper. I sure was starved. Nothing to eat since yesterday morning. I feel a lot better now since I had something to eat. It’s still a bit painfull (sic) to walk but otherwise I feel pretty good. I have a latin exam to-morrow. The doctor said if I felt o-kay to-morrow I could go for but otherwise to stay home. 6 more exams besides that this week. Mrs. Speare sent me over a beautiful bouquette (sic) last night and Aunt Mill brought me some marvellous (sic) sweet peas. Also have some snow drops from from the back yard. I am a real invalid. Two doctors and flowers. Kitty is a the bottom of the bed. Helen came down this afternoon for some latin sentences She has to go to a practise (sic) for “Lord Simcoe” again to-night. I have become quite an important figure all of a sudden. My temperature hasn’t gone down yet.
Got a letter from Joan the other day – very prompt for her. (I lost it before I read it and then found it again) Also got one from Jim on Friday – says he stopped school.
Wednesday April 25 . Am back at school again plugging at exams. Have written 3. Lat comp and two Germans. Made some silly mistakes. Don’t feel very good. I sure get babyed (sic) around the house now. It’s funny. Bed at 9 a.m. sharp. (sic)
Thursday April 26 . History – awful. French Authors a bit long but not too bad. Had a few pains to-day.
Saturday April 28th . Has been very cold. We had snow yesterday. All the Abells came over for dinner yesterday. Most of them left for the farm about 12:30. Helen is going to board at Campbells. I went over and helped her sweep the house up after school. Our exams weren’t bad. Latin authors and Lit. Got history marks. 5 8 and latin 63. The two things I depended on to get good marks in I flunked in. Felt very tired to-day. I’m supposed to take a lesson but I think I’ll call it off. Nana has gone up to Aunt Edith’s for the week-end.
Monday May 2 . Marvellous day. The most spring-like yet. Algebra this morning – terrible. Got the afternoon off and Helen & I went for a walk over in the park. I got 73 in Latin Authors. Grace phoned to-night.
