Patricia Z NDE
was at work I had a very hot flash then nausea then I couldn't breath. I called
for relief because I was at work but I collapsed. I had a massive heart
attack. We live in a small town so I knew the people that were working on me, I
guess I coded in the ambulance. So I saw my friends working on me. I heard
there voices but only saw the female paramedics face. Then I woke up at the
hospital but I was out of my body this time and as I explained later in this
survey I saw my doctor and I could hear them say his name all the other doctors
had hospital shoes on but my doctor had these real cool tennis shoes on. That's
what I remember most , then I was in a type of tunnel and that's were this guy
like in shadow form told me it wasn't my time yet; the guy had long hair and me
and my husband talked about who it may have been and the only answer we could
come up with was my cousin Scotty he died of AIDS back in the 80s and we were
very close. Any way I was in a coma for three weeks.
