Experience description:  

I was at the hospital because my dad had been brought in by ambulance for stomach pain and breathing issues.  After a couple of hours they said he was stable and I could go home and rest.  I went home and for some reason I could not get out of my car so I went back to the hospital.  My fathers had visitors and I asked them to leave his room so I could have a moment alone with him.  I began sobbing and saying goodbye to him and thanking him for being such a good father.  I did not know why I was saying good bye.  I left the room and went into the hallway of the hospital and sat down and cried.  My brother asked if something was wrong with dad and I said no.  He said, "why are you crying then"?  I said, "I can feel him leaving".  Then a nurse walked by and said there was a chapel on the 7th floor so I went upstairs and knelt on my knees on a pew.  I was sobbing and I heard my father giggle in my ear.  I said, "dad how can you be here when you are downstairs in the hospital bed"?  Then he said, "my work is done baby, and yours isn't".  He then left the room.  I went down stairs to find out he had passed.  About a year later I was talking to a psychic and she said I am hearing from your father and he said he called you when he passed over and you came, and I said yes, I went back to the hospital but I did not know why.  He then said he was a guardian angel for my daughter Macie.  She was 4 months old when he passed.  I know he looks out after her now because of that and I know he made it to the other side also.
