I was at home when my chest started to hurt. I knew that it was a heart attact since I had experienced one January of 2007. Now, it is December 1, 2007. They rushed me to the town hospital. They tried to stabilize me and then transfered me to a larger hospital.
I don't remember getting to the hospital. I died on the operating table. I had an out of body experience and saw the white light. When I left my body, I saw my wife. She is 64 years old with gray hair. But when I saw her, she had black hair like the color it was when we met. Then, I saw a real bright light inside a tunnel with my dad's coat. I felt like I was floating. It was so calm and peaceful. Then they shocked me back to life.
