    "+ in fair health" for "and in ...". – sempaiscuba Aug 17 '19 at 13:20

The entry reads:

11.8.16 Is much better now + in fair health.

"+ in ..." is just and abbreviation for "and in ...".


Use of '+' for "and" used to be commonplace. Its use is now discouraged or banned in medical practice almost everywhere (along with many other terms which used to be commonly used - such as 'dram', to give another example)
