My name is Paula and I am writing this information on behalf of my
daughter who had the experience. Charlynn, my daughter had a large amount of
large blood clots in her lungs. She spent 3 months in ICU in a comatose state
and the Doctors did all they could to dissolve the clots. She died twice. She
has no memory of those 3 months, but does vividly remember seeing her
grandfather who had died two years earlier. She says she "flowed" through a
brightly lit tube. When she saw her grand father and another person she did not
recognize, she felt a great deal of love and warmth and a sense of belonging.
But her grandfather told her, that it wasn't her time. She felt confused. She
told me that he very firmly said "Go Home". Several days later she woke up, and
she was improving. She couldn't talk very well nor could she move, but she
managed to scrawl on a paper pad, I saw Grandpa. It took a week more before she
could speak and she tried to explain her experience. At the present, she doesn't
speak of what happened her, but her conception of a "place" that exists after
all brain function ceases, has become clear to her. I tend to believe her.
Thanks for listening I believe what you are doing is good and right and can
give troubled people a lot of hope.
