RogerDuke Posted July 7, 2011 Report Share Posted July 7, 2011 I had a little accident at work today. A heavy piece of metal fell on my head and cut it open and knocked me out. I came back to the real world before the ambulance arrived but then fell unconscience again. I woke up again and got loaded in the ambulance and barely remained awake but was confused on the way to the hospital. Luckily the cat scan showed no serious damage and I was released under the watch of my wife. I feel fine but she's going to have to keep an eye on me for a couple days. I have a severe concussion and 7 metal staples but things look good. Here's the amazing part. I've always heard stories like this but never thought I'd experience one. For a while I saw the white light everybody always talks about. At first I was really scared but then I felt a really deep peace like I've never felt before. I was a little disappointed when the paramedic yelled at me and woke me up because the feeling was so soothing. Okay, I'm being a little dramatic with the headline of my post. I don't really know if I was close to death or not. I probably wasn't but I'll never really know how close I was. The deep peaceful feeling was an emotion I've never felt and something I'll never forget. When I'm fully recovered I have a lot of people to thank. Every once in a while we get a reminder how precious life is. Boss JD Hogg and Skipper Duke 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
