Good Post, \CONAN/

I don't have any "out-of-body" experiences to report, but I do have a testimony to God's loving grace and mercy.

I have a chronic illness which - by itself - is not fatal, but it can lead to fatal complications. It is called Crohn's Disease and it attacks the digestive tract - usually in the intestines.

Four years ago, the Crohn's killed my colon/large intestine and the entire thing ruptured - spilling massive contamination into my abdomen. Through a series of events, it took more than 30 hours before I was taken into an O.R. for corrective surgery. I had rampant Peritonitis throughout my system by that time.

When the surgeon came out of the O.R., he asked my wife if she believed in miracles. She told him she did and he said "That's good, because a miracle is the ONLY thing that will save him now."

I later learned that about 2/3 of the Christains in my home county had established "prayer chains" for me. (A prayer chain occurs when a large group of Christians pray simultaneously for a common objective).
I knew that I was Healed as soon as I awoke from surgery. I didn't learn about the surgeons concerns or the prayer chains until several days later. Since Attalus is a surgeon, he can probably verify how slim my chances for survival were.

This just strengthened my faith and commitment to God. He spared me for reasons of His own. Among other things, I have one beautiful, blonde-haired boy that wouldn't have been born if I had died and another one on the way. My oldest boy was only 18mos old at the time and would only have known me through pictures.

I thank God every day for the extra time and blessings He has given me.

I have heard many stories of people observing their body and doctors from the top of the room.

One of the strangest ones I have heard is of a surfer, who apparently died whilst surfing. It was 15mins before someone could resussicate him. During this time he claims he went before God who then gave him another chance at life. He then changed from an athiest to a devoted Christain.

Perhaps true?

Cerek, if you had Crohn's Disease of the colon and went that long without proper treatment, so that you developed peritonitis and sepsis, you could well have died. I have lost patients with Crohn's, before. Nasty, depressing, treacherous disease, granulomatous colitis. You should indeed be grateful to God for sparing you.

*ceases fire*

Oh terribly sorry I just do that at the drop of a hat when someone mentions Zombies!



... I had a near death experience once! yeah! I was struck by lightening and next thing I knew I was in a feild several feet away from where i was originally standing... I didn't make much note of it though because it didnt seem to hurt me and i felt alright so i just walked on home...

and that's why I wear magnetic bracelets on both hands and my wristwatch doesnt really work!

*gets hit in head with frying pan*
I wonder if that makes This Tape any more beliveable!

You'll notice that it goes well with a nice heapin' bowl of
