I typed this as soon as I got the chance, so that I wouldn't forget the details. In previous stories, I mentioned that I got the same gift as my mother and grandmother. I'm able to sense the paranormal though my other senses and most of the time when I'm in a relaxed state like when I'm sleeping or about to get there.
Anyway, this happened in the early morning on Thursday, November 17, 2011. The previous night, I did the usually routine after coming home from the gym; wash up, have dinner, watch a movie (Tamil soap opera), and go to sleep for work the next day. Around 2:30 am, while sleeping I could sense this feeling of fog forming around me.
Out of the fog came my grandmother and beside her was a shadow of a small child but I couldn't see who it was. I couldn't tell its gender or how it looked like. My grandmother told me that he was in trouble and I needed help him. I was really confused because although at this point I knew it was a boy, I didn't know who it was. At this point, I woke up with a pain in my stomach; it felt like someone sucker punched me in the stomach (which is not a good feeling).
I woke up groaning and I tried getting out of bed so that I could go to the washroom but it felt like there was a big fog around me. I ended calling my mom and telling her about my grandma. My mom made me some chai tea and made me go back to bed. But as I fell asleep, I couldn't shake the feeling that something was going to happen; it was so intense.
When I got up to get ready for work, I could still feel my grandmas presence and I could see and feel her telling me to help him. After getting ready, I called up any family member that had small children (cousins, nieces, nephews, anybody). I think many thought I lost it when I called them so early in the morning but I couldn't just shake off that feeling that something bad was going to happened. I even called up two of my best friends that had children and they told me that the kids were asleep but I made them get out of bed to check on them and they were okay. Thinking that I was seriously losing it, I grabbed my coffee and bagel from Tim Horton's and when to work.
About an hour after I started work (around 9:30 am), I get a call my friend, Diana's son's daycare. Josh had stopped breathing and they had taken him to Toronto Sick Kids. Diana had put me as an emergency contact for Josh and when the daycare couldn't reach Diana, they called me. I nearly had a heart attack. This morning one of the people I called was Diana and she said that Josh was okay.
I seriously do not how I got the hospital; it was all a blur and I probably broke a few traffic laws getting there. The only thing that I remember doing was trying to get in contact with Diana. After a few tries, I was able to get in contact with Diana. Diana is an event planner and she was in a meeting when the daycare called and she had her phone on silent. I finally got through to her and told her to get to the hospital ASAP and that Josh was there. Thinking back, I should have gone to pick Diana up first but all my thoughts were with Josh. I also called Brian (Diana's boyfriend) and let him know what was happening. Since Brian worked in the downtown area, he got there before Diana and me.
Diana and I are the best of friends since the third grade. We went to school together and we were attached at the hips. Diana's big brother was finished law school and was settled in Michigan with his wife and kids and around the same time Diana graduated from high school, her father got a job with the City of Sarnia in Sarnia, Ontario. Diana's parents decided to relocate to Sarnia but Diana didn't want to follow them there as she got accepted to the University of Toronto. Since the house that Diana and her family were living in was fully paid off, it was decided that Diana would move into the master bedroom and rent out the other rooms to get some money in. We went to school and life moved on.
Diana met who she thought was the love of her life at the university. Kevin was an accounting student, two years her senior. He was a handsome guy but I didn't like him, he sent out really bad vibes and I told Diana as much. But like people who are in love could attest to, Diana was blinded by the love she had for him and couldn't see pass his outer charm.
After both graduated, they got married. This is where the problems started. Diana wanted to start a family right away and have as many kids as possible. But, as you guessed, Kevin didn't want to start a family. His explanation was that he wanted both of them in a good working position when they had kids. It was okay with Diana in the beginning but in the back of her mind, she wanted kids really bad. One day, Diana got pregnant and she was really happy. But Kevin wasn't and he wanted Diana to get an abortion.
Being Catholic, she was against abortion and Kevin knew that, so he said that she could also give the child up for adoption. Being Diana, she refused because she always wanted a child. Kevin made her choose between him and the child and Diana choose the child. They got a divorce and Kevin being who he is decided that he should pay child support as that child was his because he always wore protection. A DNA test was done after Josh was born and as you guess Kevin wasn't too happy when the judge told him that he had to pay child support.
Diana and Brain met last year when Diana planned Brain's sister's wedding. They hit it off right away but Diana still had her old wounds but Brain's love won her over. They plan on getting married next year with Josh being the ring bearer. Also, Brain has decided to adopt Josh as his child. To Josh, Brain is the only father he has known because although Kevin has to pay child support by law, he made it clear that he didn't want anything to do with Josh.
Back to the story, Josh was taken to the hospital because he stopped breathing at the daycare. This is one of the symptoms of having a hole in the heart. Josh was born with a hole in his heart and at the age of two has had five surgeries to fix his heart. Doctors were able to stabilize him and get him to breathe again.
I ended up calling Diana's parents in Sarnia and picking them up at the airport so that Diana and Brain could be at the airport. Diana's parents wanted to know if Kevin was contacted but nobody made the call but Diana's mom said that it wasn't right not to call. I still had Kevin's number so I called on the drive back to the hospital. Just as I guessed, Kevin told me not to call him and that it was already bad enough that he had to pay child support but he didn't want to deal with some stupid sick kid and that he hoped Josh died just so Diana could be miserable. In no certain terms, I told him what I thought of him and also told him that Josh was God's gift to Diana and that He wouldn't take him away from her.
As of Saturday, Josh has been stabilized and doctors are hoping to do one last operation to fully close the hole in his heart. After hearing the doctor speak, I felt this overpowering peace run though my body and felt that it was a sign from my grandma that everything was going to be okay. I told Diana and her family as much.
UPDATE: Josh had his surgery last night (Sunday) and it turned out well. He is still in the hospital but doctors say that he is making a speedy recovery and should be home to open Christmas presents.
