Waved Back by an Angel

In 2002 I was throw from a horse, broke my back in six places, and suffered a concussion. I was brought to the hospital and given iodine for a cat scan. Unbeknownst to me then, I was allergic to iodine and my heart stopped while I was in the cat scan. 

My pain stopped. I heard the bell ringing and hospital personnel saying, "code blue, code blue." I thought oh someone died and they need to take care of the people and are going to leave me alone to do that.  Then when I came out of the cat scan tunnel I saw all of these people running over to me but I was above them looking down. I then realized I was dead. 

I remember thinking if I am dead then where is the white light and the tunnel I heard so much about ? Just as I had the thought I saw the light and the tunnel. It was golden. I walked into it and it seemed to be getting narrower and narrower. I felt like I was shrinking. As I got to the the apex of the tunnel there was an angel in white and she waved me back. 

At that moment, hospital personnel were giving me a shot of adrenaline into my heart. I felt myself pop back into my body and the pain of my broken bones.  I opened my eyes.  The nurses said, "you scared us, we thought we lost you for good."

I rarely slept and "burned the candle at both ends." As a result, I succumbed to mononucleosis for the second time. (I supposedly had it before when I was 6 or 7 years old. Some doctors believe that it never completely goes away)

Ancestors Care About Us and Our World

Diagnosed terminal and in and out of consciousness for several weeks, I had been told there was no help on too many planes to explain here. Regardless, I was 39 days into a 30 day life expectancy. I weighed not only the opportunity for assistance but the practicality of it as well. I slept for hours during the days and nights. I was sicker than sick. My doctors later explained that was the sickest any human being could ever be. I was at the doorway of death in both mind and body. Most of my memory of those days are limited to say the least. As are any recollections of any dreams. Dreams were just seemingly non-existent for me and honestly still are rare today. But the one memory and the events

Grandma heard me!

I crashed my bicycle when several friends and I were playing follow the leader and we were jumping a manhole cover. I flipped over and landed on my head. I can remember leaving my body and seeing myself on the ground there was no pain but I felt panic because I didn't understand what was going on.
