West Frankfort, Illinois
My mother had tuberculosis when I was an infant. In those days “TB” was an illness which was not treated in many hospitals nor at home. People were sent away to sanatoriums. As a result of her illness, my sister and I lived with my maternal grandparents until I was about 2 years old. My sister would have been about 6-7. I am told I did not remember my mother when she came to take me home. I am sure that must have been hurtful to her.
