I was having a normal evening and went to bed around 9:30 pm. I woke up around 4 a.m. the next morning to realize I had diarrhea in my sleep then started vomiting profusely. I felt really weak so I had my wife take me to the emergency room. I felt like I was going to pass out the whole way to the hospital. When I got there, I lay on a bed in a room by myself and lost consciousness.

The next thing I knew, I was looking at my lifeless body on the hospital bed. Then I saw a light, brighter than the sun, but it was pure white. I then saw my grandmother and uncle who both passed in the late 1990s. I wanted to go to the light more than anything. All my pain was gone, no stress, and no worries. I have never felt so good in my entire life. I tried to walk around them to get to the light, when I felt a small hand on my right knee. I looked down to see my son, who had passed a couple years ago, at birth. He then said, ‘Daddy, keep fighting.’ I noticed that there were three angels. One angel was standing behind my grandma and uncle and the other two were standing next to them. My uncle told me it wasn’t my time yet and my grandma smiled at me but didn’t say anything. The angel furthest to my left, placed its left hand on my left shoulder. I felt a firm squeeze and was sucked back into my body with a sort of popping noise/feeling.

I was back and called the nurse. I told her what happened. They brought in paddles just in case they needed them. They put me on an IV and gave me medicine for the nausea. I stabilized and they told me I had been poisoned, probably by eye drops of some kind. They ran a bunch of tests on me and said that I was in perfect health other than whatever poisoned my body.

Before, I had been very depressed and wanted to die but was scared of dying. Now, I am no longer scared of death, but have a new desire to live. The NDE has drastically changed my viewpoint on life. I want to be healthy now. I find my head full of questions I wish I could have asked. I wanted more time with my son, as I never even got to hear his voice in life. I will never forget the sound of his voice that night. I know I will see them all again when it’s my time. I somehow knew that heaven, or my perception of heaven, waited beyond the light I saw in the corner of that hospital room. The angels were the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen, surpassing any living thing on this world. There are no words to describe their beauty. The NDE happened a week ago this morning. Yesterday, I went back to the hospital with severe abdominal pain, but to a different hospital in a different state than in my home town. They said it was side-effects of being poisoned after the same tests plus a CT scan and x-rays, but had no more NDEs in that visit. They told that I had been poisoned and if the pain gets worse, they will just admit me and probably remove my limp nodes which were damaged as a result of being poisoned. Other than that, I am still in near perfect health.
