Couple Hides Son’s Illness From Daughter, But Were Confused When She Brought This Strange Man Home.
“One dollar and eleven cents,” Tess answered barely audible. “And it’s all the money I have, but I can get some more if I need to.”
“Well, what a coincidence,” smiled the man. “A dollar and eleven cents . . . the exact price of a miracle for little brothers.” Then he said “Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let’s see if I have the kind of miracle you need.”
The pharmacist’s brother was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon from Chicago who specialized in neuro-surgery. The operation was completed without charge and it wasn’t long until Andrew was home again and doing well. Later, mom and dad were talking about the chain of events that had led them to this.
Her mom said, “That surgery was a real miracle. I wonder how much it would have cost?”
Tess smiled. She knew exactly how much a miracle cost . . . one dollar and eleven cents.
