Just before Christmas, my husband Michael got sick with what I now believe to have been the flu. We were away for Christmas so upon our return home he went immediately to an urgent care center and was diagnosed with a severe ear infection. I also became ill with virus like symptoms, in addition to developing severe pains in my right leg. The pains were severe but intermittent. I didn't think much of my pains and figured they would eventually pass after a few days.Shortly thereafter, one night around 4 a.m., Michael woke up while laying in bed. I was sound asleep next to him as was our two cats. There was no one else in the house. Michael states he heard a hushed, female voice coming from down the hall that said "what did the doctor say?"
The next day, Michael relayed to me what he heard. I told him that it was probably a deceased ancestor spirit checking on him since he had been sick. Michael replied "I don't know. How do you know they are not checking on you?" I simply replied to him "I've been sick too but I haven't gone to a doctor therefore it must be about you."
The next day the pains in my thigh became excruciating. The pains were sharp and burning, occurring several times a hour. After work I went to an urgent care clinic to be evaluated. The doctor told me she thought I might have a life-threatening blood clot and to go to the emergency room immediately. As it was about 8 p.m. on a Thursday night I figured the ER would be really busy and I would be there all night waiting to be seen. I said to my husband 'I've been alive this long, one more night won't make a difference." Before going to sleep I said my prayers.
The next morning we went to the emergency room at our local hospital. The emergency room was filled with really sick people with what appeared to be the flu. I said my prayers for those in the ER and for myself. Because I had what was considered a potential life-threatening aliment - a blood clot, I was seen quickly.
The attending doctor ordered an x-ray and ultrasound of my leg. While having the tests, I continued to pray.
To the perplexment of the doctor, both tests came back normal. No cause of my pain was found. I was released from the hospital and told to follow up with my regular doctor. I was extremely relieved.
When my husband and I returned home he said "See, the voice was asking about you." I replied "I'm still not convinced. I think it was about you." All I know is, I'm just glad there is someone in the hereafter looking after us. Thankfully, both my husband and I have both made full recoveries.
