Morris M Probable NDE
I was going to the hospital for a tonsillectomy when I started to endure stomach cramping and pain. Upon arrival I was in full blown pain. After being admitted I was under close observation for the night when the pain became too severe. Granted nobody thought I was having an appendicitis attack at that point. At around 2am my mother grabbed a doctor from the hall due to my wailing in pain. The doctored examined me then, may have, accidentally ruptured my appendix. From there I was immediately rushed to the operating room. Within minutes I was put under general anesthesia which was when I had my out of body experience.
I was up in corner of the room looking down a tunnel, grayish or white in color and kind of cloudy, at my body and the doctor who was prepping me. I could see the blue garments that were over my body and the area above my appendix exposed. I could see him putting iodine on me in a circular motion directly over the appendix area. I could see him turn a glance upward towards my head then the next thing I was back in my body. Then I was laying there back in my body and could see, hear and feel the doctors (2 of them) slapping me in the face to wake me up. I was yelling at them that I was awake and that they didn't need to hit me anymore. Later the doctors said I never came too and did not say anything to them. That was it.
