Kerry ADC

Experience description:  

I had got up early hours of the morning then went into my sons bedroom as he was in work and went back to sleep in there so as not wake my husband.

In my dream the phone rang and I was expecting it to be my mother(who is alive).

I heard "hello Ker" I was shocked as I knew it was my dad I said "who is it?" and he replied "you know who it is you have heard my voice enough times on the phone" I started to cry and said that the doctors at the hospital must have made a mistake as they had told me that he had died he didn't give me a reply I said that they were right and that you are dead aren't you, but he still wouldn't answer the question. Then he said "its ok now I have spoke to you like this I can come back and see you" as if he was on holiday and coming back.

Then I was sat up in my sons bed and my dad was sat on the bed at the side of the bed holding my hand. He looked slightly paler and was wearing a grey shirt he didn't look happy he had more of a look of concern on his face. I said I was sorry for not being there for him more etc he said that I should not worry about things like that. I said that I was so glad to hear it from him, that I knew it would be what he would say but was so glad to hear him say it himself. He said that was his job to make me feel better. He said that if it wasn't for me he wouldn't have had a life and that I must live a life while I am here and that I must look after my family now. There were other things said but I cannot remember them.  I leaned forward to hug him and woke up sat up in bed.I was wide awake  and the bedroom was exactly the same. The dream was in the same bedroom being as I don't sleep there usually. I felt slight sadness at first then I felt elation and thanked him for coming to see me.
