Experience Description

I was sitting in the dirt watching my dad make a horse for me out of wood. I was so excited at the thought that I was going to have a pony that I squeezed my dog with a tight hug and it turned to bite me in the face. my first memory of the OBE was my seeing my father lifting me over the fence to hand me to the neighbor on the other side telling my mom to get the dog away. I heard screams and saw my mom dragging the dog to the back yard and my sister and brother calling the police I remember telling them without speaking to be calm. It was my sister who was actually talking on the phone. My dad jumped the fence and was holding my hand and the ambulance came down the street. I remember seeing myself convulsing and then nothing until after at the hospital where I remember seeing a bunch of men trying to strap me down and they gave me a shot then the men walked out of the room and I dont remember a thing until I was basically waking from a dream so it felt.
