i had gone to hospital with possible pneumonia and had been given steroid medication. i have had this before and knew it made me bleed. but this time i didn't know they were giving it to me and the doctor told me later an artery was at lining of stomach and it got involved with the ulcerated stomach. my husband tells me he could see the blood gushing on the equipment with every heart beat. and the doctor told him if they had waited another 5 min to call him i would have been gone.
anyway, while all this was going on, my mother, dad and recently deceased brother appeared at the left side of my bed and they all looked like they had when i was in high school. we talked by mental telepathy. i was so happy to see them and i asked "you have come to take me home with you haven't you?" and they all 3 smiled real big and before they could answer a voice said "No, you can't go now, you have a job to complete." i asked "my grandson?" and the answer was "Yes." my mother and father and brother just vanished at that time. and i realized i was in hospital with a lot of people around me and i knew all they were talking about.
I had had my grandson living with me for a year at that time. he was 15 and needed a stable home

Please offer any suggestions you may have to improve this questionnaire:
i feel my experience was a small one compared to others but to me it was a wonderful experience i wouldn't trade for anything. it seems i understand it all to a deeper level. i think you have done a very good job in covering the questioning and you have given the opportunity for those having an experience to express it thoroughly
