My Wife was scheduled for heart bypass surgery on Friday August 12,1994. On Thursday evening August 11, I Prayed to Jesus to have the Doctors do one more EKG and find her arterties clear , so that she would not have to have surgery. (JUST A SMALL MIRACLE) That didn't happen, so I went to the hospital at 5 AM on Friday so I could visit with her before her surgery at 7 AM.
Her surgery lasted 5 1/2 hours, and at l PM the doctor came out an talked with me He told me she had a SIX WAY BYPASS, and she should be of the respirator in 24 hours. They told me I could visit her in the recovery room for 30 minutes 3 times a day. The following day when I visited her the nurse told me they were unable to remove the respirator because her Heart was to unstable. When they tryed to remove it her Heart Beat went up to 136 Beats per minute.
When I went to bed Saturday night I prayed to Jesus to PLEASE help her so they could remove the respirator. But she remained on th respirator all day Sunday. That evening about ll PM I called the recovery room to check on her condition. The nurse told me she was still on the respirator, and to call back in the morning. At about 11:45 PM my grandaughter phoned me and ask how grandma was. I told her nothing had changed and that she was still on the respirator. I would call the hospital in the morning and would call her back.
Then I layed back on the bed and I was angry with Jesus I said to him I am not going to pray to you tonight, In fact I am not going to pray to you anymore. (EITHER YOU CAN'T HELP ME, OR YOU JUST DONT CARE) I laid there but I could not sleep , I looked at the clock on the night stand and it was 2: 15 A.M I decided to call the hospital again. So I got up and turned on the light to dial the phone. I spoke to a nurse and she was still on the respirator. And listed in stable but critical condition. I hung the phone up and sat there on the edge of the bed, and all of a sudden I started to cry. Then I YELLED OUTLOUD to JESUS. JESUS PLEASE HELP HER," PLEASE PLEASE ,PLEASE" On the third please something strange happened ( I found myself standing next to the reception desk by the recovery room.)
Standing in front of me was a man with long hair and a white robe that went down to his ankles To look at him startled me because the robe was the whitest brightest material I had ever seen. I ask myself what kind of material could it be, it looks like terrycloth, but it was so bright it glows, The two wide doors to the recovery room were opened by pressing a large button on the right side of the wall. He touched nothing but the doors opened for him and he started to walk down the corridor. For him to find her room. He would have to follow the blue carpet for about 40ft. then back to the orange carpet for about 10 ft. Then her room was the second on the left. I followed behind him and he knew exactly where to go. As we entered the room I stood behind him on his left side.
He took his right hand and held her right hand, he took his left hand and placed it on her forehead. She opened her eyes and looked directly at him. He stood there for a few minutes then he laid her right hand down and walked around to the other side ofthe bed. and he stood there for a few minutes with his hands folded as if he were praying.. Although he was faceing me I could not see his face clearly.I could see everthing else in the room but not his face. Then he walked around me and left the room.
I followed him down the corridor The two doors opened again for him and he touched nothing. I followed behind him He went on and stood in front of the first elevator. I stopped at the reception desk and I ask why would Jesus be taking an elevator?" At just that moment he disappered, and I found myself sitting on my bed with my light still on. I said to myself ( OH MY GOD I JUST WALKED WITH JESUS) I Said Jesus thank you for helping my wife. I never thought what happened that I would be allowed to witness it. I can't find the words to describe how I felt whiile this was happening. It was like for a few moments of my life I was in another world that was so beautiful. I went out to the kitchen and had a cup of coffee, then I returned to my bedroom and turned on the light. In the morning I awoke and called the hospital. The nurse told me she had good news, your wife is off the respirator and sitting up in a chair.
I was so happy I called our Church and spoke with our pastor. He said everyone who has had a spiritual experence has always reflected something very white and very bright. As to why this could have happened to me, he said remember the night you did not pray to him you said EITHER YOU CAN'T HERE ME OR YOU JUST DON‘T CARE. He was showing He could hear you and He did care. As to why you couldn't see his face clearly, he said No one will ever see his face clearly until after death. For a living person he wants you to come tohim through faith.. You may think what you may: But at 2: 15 AM ON MONDAY AUGUST 15, 1994, I WALKED WITH JESUS
