February 10 and 11, 1923

[February 10 & 11]  Mother was nearly sick & Nora just took charge of things & cared for father.  Dr. K. came twice a day.  Maud came & spent today & Sunday.  Father wasn’t up any more from this time & seemed to grow weaker each day.  Really was not in pain all the time but really just worn out.
