Angel Solomon had been experiencing painful physical symptoms since she was twelve years old: migraine headaches, stomach aches, trouble breathing, flushing, flu-like symptoms. The doctors refused to test her with a MRI or CT scan. Instead, they told her mother that Angel was faking her illnesses and needed to see a counselor. In spite of her occasional chronic pain, Angel became a singing and acting star in high school and college. Groupies followed her in between classes and townspeople asked her for her autograph. Since the mainstream doctors ignored Angel s mysterious symptoms, she turned to a shaman, who led her into a mythological world of counseling. A naturalpathic healer administered a drug program that involved overdoses of antibiotics, hormones and antifungals, which damaged Angel s immune system. A near-death pontoon ride on the Colorado River and an auto accident further added to Angel s medical crises. Finally, Angel s breathlessness alarmed doctors. Heart failure, carcinoid cancer tumors on her liver and A.R.D.S. left the doctors scratching their heads and saying we ll just have to wait and see when Angel was still in serious condition after her open heart surgery at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle. Only a MIRACLE could save Angel. The Solomon family lived in the ICU waiting room for six weeks with other families who never gave up Hope that God would save their critically ill family members even when the doctors predicted the worst. In THE WAITING ROOM you will meet Heart Man, The Sheik, Triangle Woman, Zoo Man, Mrs. Baptiste, Puzzle Man, Marlboro Man and Grandma, Senora Yanez, the P.R.A.Y. Group and R.E.I. Man. The denizens of the intensive care waiting room became one family, who helped each other endure the trauma of their loved ones standing at Heaven's Gate.
