Are premonitions real?
I always had my doubts about Premonitions. Are premonitions real? Well I am here to tell you YES!
This is a very personal and true story. It was July 3, 2004, a Saturday evening and my husband and I were at 4:30 pm mass. It was a typical Saturday evening mass, nothing unusual until I was overcome with a terrible thought that something was going to happen to my husband. This felt so real that I began to cry. I have never had a feeling like this before. This sensation flowed through my whole body. It lasted for a few minutes then subsided. I didn't mention this to my husband but it tugged at me never leaving my thoughts.
We attended a festival later that evening for the Independence Day Holiday. After a short stroll around we decided to leave. There was a new development of houses on the river we wanted to see so we stopped and walked around a bit. We got back into the car and started to leave when my husband said he felt dizzy. After waiting a few minutes he decided he was OK to drive. We did not get very far when he pulled over rushed out of the car and began vomiting. He felt like he just kept spinning and spinning.
Should we go to the hospital? No, it's probably a stomach virus. I drove the rest of the way. We were about 5 minutes from home but he felt it was longer. My husband felt every bump and turn that we made. When we arrived home he just layed down on the floor to rest.
While all this was happening I just kept thinking about what happened to me at Mass earlier that evening. I was keeping a very close eye on my husband.
He decided to go lay down in bed. Then he needed to use the bathroom and he closed the door behind him. Taking too long I opened the door to find him on the floor. He was unresponsive and the side of his face was drooping. I yelled to our son to call 911!
I held my husband in my arms trying to comfort him and tell him that help was on the way. He just looked at me. To this day when I am in our bathroom and hear sirens I think of that day and it has been 8 yrs.
Yes my husband had a stroke. Our Pastor from church came to visit and I asked him if there were such things as premonitions. I explained what had happened at Mass and he said yes that premonitions are real.
This was a very upsetting time for me. Family and friends were at our sides for support. I have MS and the stress of my husband's stroke brought on more fatigue than usual.
There is one good thing that came out of all this and that was now my husband can understand the feeling of severe dizziness accompanied with vomiting that I went through before my diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis.
Today when you look at the both of us you would never guess that we are both sick. Our illnesses for the moment have chosen to remain hidden in our bodies. And that is where we would like them to stay.
