Discussion: I Believe in Angels!

|I Believe in Angels!|
After almost a month of difficulties, my gall bladder was declared the miscreant and on April 24 it was removed.
On May 25 I found myself in an emergency room at a local hospital; some gallstone material had lodged in my pancreas and I was experiencing acute pancreatitis. The next 6 days are still pretty much a blur since I was unconscious for most of it. I would awake for a minute here or 5 minutes there. I almost left permanently on 2 occasions.
On the 5th morning around 2 a.m., my wife and I were the only persons in the room. She was wiping my face with a cool, damp cloth when I came to and I whispered "Angels".
Her response: "Yes, baby, I am your angel!" "No", I corrected her, "They're behind you."
And they were there! A number of them--just silhouetted figures. There was someone else there as well; in the corner was a completely dark figure, all in shadows; his face down and I only saw his hands folded in front of him.
My response was to ask my wife for a gun, but do not give it to him for he is dead! Draw your own conclusions. You may not believe; but I do!
I passed out immediately after that. Now I know this is not pertinent to senior softball and I do not expect responses, but I do hope it will prompt some personal thoughts from everyone.
I will make a small connection however. Earlier during my state, my wife said that I kept muttering something about "pool play, pool play", then suddenly came too, sat up, and declared: "Honey, I love to play softball!", then passed back out.

|I am with you. Never saw one but I know they were there. Going through Leukemia treatments 22 years ago I did a lot of stupid things that should have killed me, like driving at night when I partially blinded by chemo treatments, for 22 miles just following the white lines in the road and checking myself out of the hospital.|
There had to be a Guardian Angel watching over me as I wasn't watching out for my selve.

|Fred, angels are often around and we do not even realize!|
Thanks, Pat. The last 7 months have been rather interesting: Dec. 6--back surgery; April 24--gall bladder surgery; it was my granddaughter who was attacked by a pit bull 2 days later; May 25-30--acute pancreatitis.
I am doing well and hope to play in SSUSA Southern Championships in Birmingham.
One of the angels I did see was my dear wife of 44 years who never left my bedside while in the hospital!!
Every day is a good day!
