Believe it or not.

When I was 16 years old, after graduating in high school, I was hospitalized for one month because of my kidney problem and I was also diagnosed as having acute anemia. I remembered that I was so scared to die. I don’t want to be alone in my room. I had dextrose to my right arm, a blood transfusion to my left arm and oxygen to my nose. I was lying on the bed and I can’t even move my body. It was like I was almost, but not quite there. My classmates, teachers and relatives visited me at the hospital when they learned that I am dying. There was already a priest in my room and they say a little prayer for me. When the priest gave me the bread of life, I asked myself will I die so soon? When the priest had gone, I fell asleep. Later, I woke up and got up on the bed. I went out in my room and I saw my cousin who was there watching TV in the other room. I called her and even shouted at her but she didn’t hear me at all. I continued walking the hospital hallway and I saw many people walking too like me but I can’t see their faces until I reached the elevator. I headed inside and while I was there, my mind was wondering why I didn’t feel any tightness even if the elevator or lift was crowded. When the door opened, I went straight outside of the hospital. It was day time, the sun was so bright to my eyes and I can hardly open my eyes. I continued walking but this time, I felt that I was flying. I was there in our house in just few seconds. I saw our neighbors busy in their daily lives. I went inside in our house but nobody was there. I wonder again where my parents and brothers are.

The next thing I remembered was when I went out of the house; there was something like a long tunnel that I can only feel and see the wind turning in one direction going deeper to the tunnel. At the end of the tunnel, there was a little hole. I was standing still but the wind slipped me going to the small hole.

This is only the first part of my unbelievable experience of life and death. Watch for the continuation of this story.
