"If one of the nips was off color, I put a rug near the stove or fire for them to lie on. Rob was the best patient – he always ran a temperature and I’d dose him with aconite pills. It was a homeopathic mixture – real good. He’d just lay there, but Joy would hang on to my skirts and grizzle. I’ve still got all the cards I ever got – more than a case full and when the patient got to sitting up stage, they were allowed to look at them".
Mum did the same thing with us kids. If I had a day off primary school sick, we would have to stay in bed all day and Mum would bring out the box of cards for us to look through.
