Actually, the Sanaeva was also prone to frequent diseases, like many children of war. Parents, having lost eldest son, who died in the evacuation at the age of two, were fawning over Elena, even in an excessive degree. When the daughter became ill with jaundice, Lydia Antonovna insisted on baptism, but for those anti-religious times, it was more than risky thing to do.
