Dear Dick

I am writing [son Kenneth]  for mother because she has a sore arm. She has been in bed almost a week. Daddy, Sue and I have to do the work. She may have an operation. It is a sac of calsium on the shoulder bone pressing against the bone. It has been pretty painful for her.

We went swimming last Saterday.

David went in  for his first time. He just loved it.

School will be out on the first of June. And if mothers feeling better we’ll have alot of fun swimming and going on picnics.

Alan is eating fine and is a good baby. David is talking a lot now and is just as ornery as ever.

Daddy says he’ll make some woman a good wife.

[page 3]
We are glad you got our flowers and that you enjoyed them.

Love Lois

P.S. Just time for a word, Dick. Lois’s arm is better. I took her to the hospital thursday and they tapped the shoulder socket, drawing off puss & calcium water. She is feeling much better today. The irritation was pressing the nere and was almost unbearable. I expect her to be OK in several weeks. Will write when I have more time. Love to all.
Bill
