I am a Real Invalid

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.

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.
