In March of 1993, I had to have sinus surgery due to severe sinus disease and nasal polyps. What should have been a fairly easy surgery, turned out to be anything but easy. During the surgery, I started having a really bad asthma attack, they had to put a tube down my throat. Things just kept getting worse, I actually quit breathing. They had to resuscitate me, I left this world for a short period of time. During that time, what I saw was beautiful. I saw a shining bright, very pure whiteness. I felt peaceful, and very calm. I also saw the hands of my best friend Leanna, that had passed away in January of that year. I could hear her voice, as her hands pushed me back, she kept saying that I had to go back, that it was not my time yet. She told me that I still had things to do on earth. At that point, I sat straight up, and I was crying. I was very sick, I began throwing up. I had to spend the night in the surgical intensive care unit, because my blood pressure was at stroke level. I was able to go home the next afternoon, praise God. My God has brought me through so many health crisis, and brought me back from deaths door. How could I not believe in Him, and the power of His love. Miracles are real, and I am living proof of that.
