Laura Ingalls Wilder:
Within a few months, Jenny was running to school and by the end of the year, it was as though the accident had never happened. Jenny was Marvin's last patient and he was proud.

This is the second time in this shortened season that Jenny almost drowns and is saved by Jeb Carter. This time, though, it was an accident and she suffers injury. Because of lack of oxygen, her body is weakened and her speech is affected. Laura and Almanzo are told there's nothing more the doctors can do, so they bring her home.
Almanzo wants to push Jenny, but Laura wants to coddle her. Jenny finally starts spending time with a doctor recently forced into retirement because of his eyesight. Under his loving care, Jenny becomes stronger. He announces it's time for her to return to school, but school is a lot harder than she ever expected!
This episode is pretty good. Almanzo is a bit more vocal, though I still liked the earlier Almanzo better - the one who lost his temper and actually told Laura vocally what he thought instead of letting her make all the choices and run his life...In this one, Almanzo told Laura in that quiet way of his that Jenny would continue her visits to Marvin.
