Four Returns

I have several experiences to share, starting with one that occurred in February 2008. I died for 20 minutes from heart failure and was shocked five times by an ambulance crew. At the hospital, I was put in an induced coma with freezer bags for five days. During that time I was given a blessing by my LDS (Latter Day Saints) bishop. I only had a 2% chance of living with strong probability of no brain functionality and becoming a vegetable. When I awoke from the coma, my first words were that my bishop had given me a blessing.

Over the next months, I slowly came back to consciousness; eventually I returned to work and a relatively normal life. I noticed an increased sensitivity to light and color. Even now, I have no recollection about the couple of months before, during or after the incident.

Additionally, I had a NDE at 14 years old after being thrown from a motorcycle at 35 mph. And, in September 1982, after developing a fever and wrapping myself in a sleeping bag to get warm, my spirit rose above my body and looked down through a dark, silvery tunnel some 30-40 feet above my body. I had been given a blessing by a member of my local congregation and immediately returned to my body. And lastly, in 1993, I died for about five minutes from a pulmonary embolism, but was not allowed to remember anything from the experience.

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.
