was eight and 1/2 months pregnant when I suffered a concussion.
I was in an abusive marriage with seemingly no where to
turn. I went into labor and called the doctor. She asked
me if I could drive to the hospital in the city (about 2
hours away). When I started laughing, she told me to come
to the local hospital.
I recall the pain
being overwhelming. The baby was dead and preached.
Suddenly I was looking
back over my left shoulder trying to tell the nurse who
was yelling, "Linda, open your eyes. You're OK. Everything
is going to be OK."
I was laughing.
I did not want to come back.
The doctor asked
what my blood pressure was and the nurse responded, "What
The doctor asked
again and the nurse responded very loudly, "What blood
The doctor said, "Call
Doctor Coons, do not hesitate."
In the mean time,
I was doing great. There was no more pain and, my God, the
love was so incredible.
The nurse, however,
would not leave me alone. She just kept yelling at me to
open my eyes. But they were open and I could see her hand
in front of my face. Man, what a large hand she had.
Doctor Coons came
in and asked if the baby was dead.
Then the nurse asked
if they could give me a pain medication. I still did not
feel any pain.
My family was called
and told that I would be in the hospital for 2 to 3 weeks.
I was out in 3 days.
When I went back
to the doctor, the first thing out of her mouth was, "What
do you remember?"
I lied and said
nothing. Boy, if she only knew.
For the next several
years, my life was crap!! Till I started to talk about my
NDE. It has taken me twenty-five years and three husbands
to learn that.
I will never experience
the unconditional love that I did during my NDE.
Now things are much
better. I lowered the play bar of love for my latest and
greatest hubby. He is doing very well (for a being).
Sometimes I know
things about this life that others question daily. Recently
I have been hearing from the other side. I love it. I am
spending time with others now that had an NDE. It's like
being with my family, finally! So comfortable.
I do not recall
all of my NDE; but, I know when the time is right I will.
I am so looking forward to my total recall!!!!
