Re: “Ruth Coker Burks, the cemetery angel

As a person that went through the battle of AIDS personally I can attest to the fact that had I not had my own Elihu in my life at that time I would not be writing this. In Los Angeles in 1996 in February I was found with my head swollen and lungs filled with fluid. I was rushed to Hawthorne Hospital where doctors mulled over my condition. Apparently with ICU intubation for two weeks and numerous tests the doctors were miffed. At the very last moment after two weeks I started breathing on my own so I was taken off the intubation. Still no diagnosis. It wasn't till Dr. Webman drifted by my room that the recovery back from the dead started. He said OMG just treat as if and he'll come around. I was not diagnosed because I had no immune system so a positive test for AIDS was impossible and they were willing to let me die rather that misdiagnose. If it wasn't for my boyfriend then that came to visit every day and sit by my side as I struggled to recover I would have never been able to write this. His name is Elihu. When I got home after a month in the hospital I grabbed my Bible and just out of curiosity looked up the name sake in the good book. There he was pulling Job back from death's door reminding him that God has not forsaken him. That was my story. Seems God likes me to pay attention literally.
