Above the Bleachers

Friday, July 13, 2007 was the luckiest day of my life. I was attending our county fair where my children show cattle for competition. I was in a show barn arena sitting about three rows up on metal bleachers. The bleachers were four rows high. I remember the lady sitting next to me yelling for help and people pulling me from in between the bleachers. I also recall people shutting the doors to the barn to send others away. I believe I had died three times during this time.

I left my body to watch from the top bleacher, which was way higher than the four rows. I saw my body being worked on and remember thinking that I had no pain and questioning why I couldn't feel any pain. I knew I wasn't in my body, but it didn't feel like I was without a body. (I know we still live after death.) I continued to watch, for how long I don't know. It seems like there is no time when you don't have a body. My husband said the rescue was about twenty minutes. When they put me on the stretcher to go into the ambulance, I re-entered my body. The female EMT’s (emergency medical technician) face was the first thing I saw next to mine. She was like an angel reassuring me.

Through this whole event and after, I had no pain. It was like God had removed me from the pain and then sent me back when everything was okay. I had no bruising from all the CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) work done on me. I walked away a week later with no answers from the doctors; when I got to the hospital, they actually didn't believe anything had happened until having read the AED chip. If it wasn't for all the bystanders and EMTs, I wouldn't be here today. Friday the 13th is the luckiest day of my life!

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 eventsĀ

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.

Wow! It's great to be alive!

Working as a technology director for a school district, I was running data cables into a conference room through the ceiling.The ceiling was a suspended ceiling with approximately 4 feet of room from ceiling to building roof. On a ladder, with my head (about eye level) inside a removed ceiling tile, I noticed a red clad electrical wire with a bare wire exposed, coming out of a conduit. Apparently it was hot since I was found on my back on the floor, with ceiling tile debris around me, and the fiberglass ladder twisted in the corner.
