My father’s story about Bone Marrow Soup that saved his brother’s life and leg:
When my father (born 1915) was a kid, his brother had a bad bicycle accident and broke his leg. It was set wrong and there were lots of problems including spending months in traction in a children’s hospital in another city. He became very weak and sick. His family brought him home because the hospital wasn’t helping. At home their mother made him bone marrow soup. That was about all he could eat. My father fed it to him because he was so weak that he couldn’t even feed himself. He got better, stronger and the bone healed. He always walked with a limp because of the damage done, but the bone healed strong. It was the bone marrow soup that saved his life and healed his bone.
