Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: ...(IA: dram), thinking that would control her better than morphine. In an hour's time she was quiet and asleep. On the 6th December her temperature went up to 104 by axilla. Calomel (gr. 3) in divided doses and aspirin (gr. 5) every three hours were ordered, and sponging for temperature over 102. Septic pneumonia developed and a pneumonia jacket was put on. The next morning Doctor R. sent out vaccine (1 Cc.) that I gave by hypodermic at eight, followed by another the next morning. The temperature receded. I discontinued the heroine and atropine and gave neurosine in the evening. While I was resting one of the women sat by the bed and gave her a spoonful of water and buttermilk every little while, for her mouth was always open, and, being given a little at a time, she was able to swallow without choking. The patient slept until morning. It was the turning point for the better. She took her nourishment and called for more. I gave her the neurosine only once during the day and another dose before she went to sleep at night. On the 9th I began to give her Basham's mixture, 1/.z ounce three times a day, and potassium bitartrate, 1 ounce once a day. On the 10th the doctor added to her diet two crackers and a little cream of wheat well cooked. From then on, she improved but had irrational spells, and I had to watch her very closely. On Christmas Day she was downstairs for two hours. But the babies--I couldn't give them much attention. The woman I had with me did the best she could, but nothing would agree with them. I put them on buttermilk, however, after three weeks, and they did finely. Later a change was made to modified milk, and now they are as nice a pair of twins as one would want to see.
