By May, she had improved so much that the hardness was disappearing, her temperature 

was normal, and there were no more night sweats. But because she still suffered with the aching, 

she decided to go to the Mayo Clinic for tests and left off the castor oil packs once more. Soon 

she was suffering again with rigors and temperature, as well as the sweats. Now another reading 

put her back on the packs and other aids. In time her health returned to the point where she
