Storyline

Olivia is suddenly stricken down with polio, and is forced to take to her bed. The local doctor follows the accepted treatment of splints attached to Olivia's legs, but John-Boy searches for more than just accepting a lifetime of paralysis. While the community rallies behind Olivia, John-Boy travels to the University of Virginia and talks with a doctor on the faculty who describes a revolutionary treatment which John-Boy is anxious to have his mother try -- anything to avoid a lifetime in a wheelchair. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>
