Was it an NDE
From: Christy (firstname.lastname@example.org) Story type: NDE Location: hospital room Source: Form Submission
In September, 1999, I went to the hospital with excrutiating abdominal pain. I was about 3 months pregnant with my 3rd pregnancy. The doctors decided that I had internal bleeding caused by a ruptured ovary. They thought the surgery was a success. They even offered for me to go home the next day, but I refused.
That night (around midnight) the nurse made me walk around the wing of the hospital. About half way around I told her I was going to die. She ignored my fears and made me keep walking. I then passed out. She got me to my bed and ignored me until around 6 a.m. at which time I called my mom and told her I was dying.
She rushed to the hospital but by the time she got there I was stable. She left for work and withing an hour the doctor was there to take me for an ultrasound to see if I had lost the baby, he put me in a wheelchair, asked me for my mom's phone number, and I then passed out again.
When I woke up I had coded (the nurse said that I went code blue which means my heart stopped). I had also vomited while I was passed out. They took me back into surgery and found I was bleeding internally again but could not locate the source of bleeding. They even took out every inch of my intestines to check for a tumor or source for the bleeding. I was on morphine for 7 days, in the hospital a total of 9 days.
I lost the baby during this surgery and was very angry, sad, hurt, and in a tremendous amount of pain. During this time, I don't know exactly when, I remember being above my bed looking down at myself.
It sounds ridiculous but it was a very calm, quick, painless moment that I was "floating above my body". The view wasn't anything sharp, it was kind of hazy, not very focused. For that moment I felt sad for me, but no longer angry. I didn't have a body to speak of while I was "floating", it was just like an indescribable spirit or something.
I never told anyone about this because I wasn't sure if it was the medication or real.
My mom almost died from Sepsis Infection and pneumonia in February of this year. This morning she emailed me and told me that she felt like she had became a spirit that looked down upon herself while sitting in her hospital bed. She too said that she felt a sense of sadness, peace, and for once no pain. But she also agreed that she didn't have a "body" to speak of, just kind of a cloudy spirit that looked at her while in the bed.
Are these real experiences or could they be from the medication? We told each other bits and pieces, never gave too much information so that the other could feed off it when I told her that I had the same experience. She swore, as did I, that these are true recollections.
