Went to the folks and had fried chicken dinner. Winifred was there. Guys came in when we were about to leave. Guy had had a bad sick spell and is still as yellow as a pumpkin. Gilbert felt fairly well, his hay fever bothering him some but I was miserable with pain in my bowels - they didn’t let up all day.

(What illness would cause Grandma's brother, Guy, to turn all yellow?)

    Hepatitis or some other disease of the liver.

  2. How can Ruth, with 'pain in her bowels' get on a bus & go across town for dinner? I sure wouldn't want to try it. I wonder if her Papa (the doctor) gave her anything for it. Did he treat Guy for his problem?
