Late one night, Barbara's phone rang. It was a call from a local hospital nurse for a patient named Lynn. Lynn had asked her nurse to call because she'd been in the hospital for weeks, unresponsive to her doctor's treatment for what they had diagnosed as an unknown virus. Lynn was dehydrated, had a very high fever, and was close to death. Barbara was told to call Lynn's room and when she did, Lynn pleaded, "Barbara what's wrong with me, why aren't I getting any Better?" "You have food poisoning, you don't have a virus". The next morning lab test were done, revealing salmonella poisoning. Lynn had eaten a tofu pie and the eggs used were contaminated. Immediately Lynn's doctors began new treatment and she rallied. Continued treatment for a virus would have proven fatal.
