We think we had one in our unit tonight…
A patient who is slightly confused, told us that he wanted that lady out of his room. Well we didnt see a lady. But he said she is standing right there!!,,,Nope no one around. He was insisting!! And getting angry that we didnt see her. He asked us if we were blind. 10 minutes later he was yelling at her to please get out of his room when we went in, he said she left but why was she outside his room and not leaving…The unit is VERY small, 10 beds around a nurses station. We can see the whole unit at a glance as the rooms are a semi circle around the nurses unit. Glass doors, all open. There was no woman loitering…The girls got busy with patients when a call light went off in another room. This patient who was totally alert and oriented tells us he wanted to know who the woman was that came into his room asking silly questions about why he was there. He didn't want to answer her because he didn't know who she was. So she just left without saying a word. He said he saw her standing outside the confused patients room for a while. But WE didn't see her..We asked him to describe her, he said she wore a yellow dress, and was very meek and polite and very soft spoken. Then as fast as she was there. She was gone. But where?? He didn't know. So we went into the slightly confused patients room because he wasn't doing well, and he asked where Annabelle had gone. We didn't know who Annabelle was, so he said the lady that was in his room. You know the one with the bright yellow dress.
OMG!!! WTH!!!!! There was no lady there, yet the 2 patients described the lady…Hours later, the patient passed away peacefully in his sleep.
When the family was called about his passing, and came in to retrieve his belongings and say a final farewell before the funeral home picked him up, we asked the daughter if her dad knew anyone by the name of Annabelle. She said Annabelle was her grandmother. Her dads mom…Well we nearly fell of the chair..Could it have been?? And why did the other patient see her?? Why ask him questions??? We still cant believe it. Coincidence ??? I cant sleep thinking about this…A bright yellow dress. Bright like the sun the way the alert and oriented patient described it…wow…August 31, 2011 at 6:16 am #134167
Yes, I fully believe this situation. And why did she asked the other patient all these questions? My feeling says, because she wanted to make sure, that you believed the disoriented patient. That's what I think. How come the other patient get to see her? because he is spiritual, and has the ability to communicate with those who have passed away.August 31, 2011 at 10:05 am #134168
Oh my, that is really spooky but I do believe that these things exist.
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."August 31, 2011 at 10:24 am #134169
I absolutely believe. I've had far too many experiences to say otherwise; with my own grandmother, with an old man in the house I grew up in (my dog noticed him many times), with my FIL after he passed away, at the house we lived in upstairs from my DH's grandmother with a restless soul who committed suicide a 100 years earlier. That one left physical marks on the old ba and was seen by many people at the same time similar to your experience Lisa. I've since talked to the people who now own that home and I can remember it like it was yesterday because the man said to me You are going to think I'm crazy for asking this, but do think the house is haunted? I told him every single thing that had happened and he was relieved to know he wasn't crazy. Cupboard doors opening and closing, things being moved. I told him that we had things like loaves of bread being moved so often that it was becoming a bit of a scavenger hunt to find anything. I had things move on me while I was using them. I would set it down, tu around to get something, tu back around and poof…moved. I gave the new owner the ghost's first name. I knew it because one night we were having a bonfire with some friends and I went upstairs to get something and when I tued down the hallway to our bedroom there was a man sitting on our bed. Stopped me in my tracks so fast. I asked the man what he was doing, and he just stared at me. I asked him who he was and he said William. Then he got up and walked over toward our closet (which has a door in the back of it that went into our living room). I tued and ran so fast down the stairs and back out side. I yelled to the guys who immediately ran upstairs. I went downstairs to where my DH's grandmother lived and stayed with her to make sure she was ok. I told her what was going on. I told her the man's name and she said Oh, you mean the boy who killed himself in this house? HUH? She told me all about him and said that he would make himself known to her on occasion and move things around on her. Well, when I told the new owner this, he ran and got his house title and searched it for a William. Over 100 years earlier a family lived in the home and the father died leaving the house to his oldest son…William. Then a few years later he sees where the house changed ownership to another woman in the family. He said that he was going to do some research and let me know what he found out.
Maybe Annabell came to get her son and thought that others were waiting with him?August 31, 2011 at 10:35 am #134170August 31, 2011 at 11:20 am #134171
I believe what they seen was real. Especially if he was alone with no family with him when he passed. Someone will come and get them. I also believe through experience. Sometimes a spirit will stay where they died because they don't believe there dead or they are confused. In my community there are people who go and do a ceremony so that the spirit moves on. Hospitals and nursing homes are always Busy places. My father would talk about people he was seeing in the hospital and when we would ask the nurses sometimes they had a name or would say noone was into visit. My own home also has some weird happening that could be related to tragedy on the land. There was a battle here during the war of 1812 that is being investigated. Much like lisa V's experiences. One other experience was when my father died a bright blue light floating around. My aunt seen it in my house from her house next door. it was in the addition that was being built during the night. On a night that the power went out. Other stuff but I gotta go to work.August 31, 2011 at 12:03 pm #134172August 31, 2011 at 2:25 pm #134166
I'm totally a believer! I love this kind of stuff. I don't have any personal experiences with ghosts per se, but I do have one very interesting experience from college. I was sleeping and had the most realistic dream that literally woke me up. Even at the time, I knew it was not just a dream and was something more. I immediately called my sister and told her that she was going to have a boy (she wasn't even pregnant at the time). A couple months later she called me to say that she was pregnant. To this day I'm convinced I had that dream on the very day that my nephew Noah was conceived. Even before we knew it was a boy, I had 100% confidence that it would be. I've never had another experience like it since, although I wish I would!August 31, 2011 at 3:12 pm #134173
Funny Amber, I had somewhat similar experience. I woke straight up one night and the thought in my head was that a cousin of mine was pregnant. Sometime later I heard this was true. Then I was making my bed one day some months later and the thought just popped in my head out of nowhere that she was having the baby and sure enough found out later she was.
Ghostly occurrences interest me quite a bit. I always say I won't completely believe unless I see one, but I don't want to see one. !lolAugust 31, 2011 at 4:04 pm #134174
I think that is neat. I am not a spiritual person, but I don't think you can deny the validity of these things. I have had several strange encounters in my life, and I know I am not imagining things.
I'm also like you guys, Amber and Sherri. I get feelings about things. I can tell when some things are happening through dreams, or even if someone is really on my mind. I knew something was wrong with my FIL one night because I woke up thinking about him, and my MIL called to tell us he had a heart attack. I also felt that my grandpa was going to die the day he did. I have a bunch of weird things like that going on. Just this Saturday, I was pulling out some old pics, and there was a bunch of a dog I used to have that my in-laws took in about five years ago. I even found one of his old toys in the garage on Friday. He passed on Sunday. I'm sure you could argue coincidence, but it happens to often to really feel that way.August 31, 2011 at 4:37 pm #134175
When we lived in La Paz, Bolivia, I picked a stray dog up off the street. As soon as she had put on enough weight I had her sterilized. But all night after the surgery she bled inteally and almost died. The vet was able to save her, but I was very shaken and decided to stay awake by her bed in the kitchen through the night. (Yes I will do that for a dog.) DH offered to set his alarm & take his tu watching her halfway thru the night but I told him no thanks, I was going to be fine. Around 1 am I heard someone walking around upstairs, very distinctly footsteps going back and forth, back and forth. Not children's footsteps, and the boys were still little. I thought how sweet, DH set his alarm anyway. Only he never showed up, until breakfast time. I asked had he not slept well and been up but he said he slept like a log and never woke up… The maid always said she thought the house was haunted, doors opening and closing, but since in the culture of Bolivian native people, spirits and ghosts are very much a part of tradition I hadn't paid much attention. One night I woke up and felt someone standing right next to my bed. You know how you feel someone who is right next to you even if it's pitch dark. I thought one of the boys had come padding over from his room but when I tued on the light – nothing there. When I talked to people about those experiences I found out that many people had had similar experiences there. (DH thinks that because the Altiplano is at almost 12000 ft people suffer from lack of oxygen which makes for the frequent ESP experiences 🙂 – but who knows.August 31, 2011 at 5:05 pm #134176
All of these stories are absolutely fascinating! I definitely believe there is something to the whole sixth sense/higher power/whatever you want to call it. It gives me comfort to know that Anabelle would come back for that patient. I think Paulien makes a good point as to why she would appear to another patient as well. Very interesting!August 31, 2011 at 8:29 pm #134177
Wow..I'm with Amber, this is totally fascinating! But I don't think I'd ever want to see a ghost/spirit myself. I think it would really shake me up. I totally believe in it though, and I'm sure Annabelle was there to get her son. Wow!August 31, 2011 at 10:05 pm #134178
I totally believe that ones that have gone before come to get our loved ones when it's time for their passing. When my Mom died, she had a confrontation with either her mother or her grandmother. My mother was raised by a very uncaring family with lots of issues. It was quite the dysfunctional family at best. When my mother died, she had it out with someone she called Mammy??? I believe it was her mother. I was right by my Mom's bedside when Mom confronted whomever it was?? My dear Mom got the last word and cleared the air after years and years of abuse and neglect. She died the next day quite peacefully. She did see angels during the last days. One time I asked her if they were beautiful? She replied rather matter of factly…No. I laughed and said…Oh, no! God is sending us ugly angels now? Mom just smiled.
My mother worked all her life in a hospital like Lisa G. She had MANY stories of patients seeing angels, family members or lights that had come to escort them to heaven. They all died soon after seeing these visions.
My Dad talked to his father who had been dead for 30 years right before his death. They had a nice visit out on the porch. Daddy died the next week from a heart attack.
I do believe…..it just happens too many times to too many people not to be true.September 1, 2011 at 12:00 am #134179
I believe and I have had my own experiences as well. My family has had them also. Way too many people have them to say that it isn't true and the ones that don't believe probably have never experienced it for them selves so for them it's easy to explain away. Defantly a believer here!
