My story begins in November 1995, On Thanksgiving day my godmother was rushed to the emergency room because she was not feeling well. Once at the hospital things went down hill fast and she was admitted into ICU and put on life support to help her breathe because she was having trouble breathing on her own. Well my mother and I stayed with her until late that evening and decided to go home and get some rest so we could be back by her side in the morning.
Once we were home I decided to sleep in my mother's room in case the hospital called with news. At around 2:00am I woke up to my dog growling this low growl so I nudged him thinking he was growling in his sleep. A few minutes later he started again but this time he was sitting up on the edge of the bed staring into the living room. Well my dog got louder and louder until he woke up my mom we both got up and saw nothing. I calmed my dog down and went back to bed.
Maybe ten minutes later I could hear footsteps in the living room, but not normal footsteps. These sounded like they walked by dragging one foot behind them. Both my mother and I are sitting up in bed looking into the living room, hearing the footsteps but seeing nothing.
As I was getting out the bed I heard a noise, the sound of someone dropping something on the table. But still I saw nothing and the dog was going crazy at this point. When I went to turn on the light the phone rang, it was the hospital informing us that my godmother (moms sister) had just had a stroke and was in a coma. The news was heart breaking, and when my mom hung up the phone we headed to the hospital.
It was about a 30 minute drive to the hospital and neither one of us spoke a word. My mind was on my godmother and what just happened at home right before the phone rang. Once we arrived at the hospital we got out the car and there was the strongest smell of roses in the air, with no roses to be found. We both smelled those roses all the way to my godmothers room in ICU. Then the smell faded away once we entered her room. The doctor came in an informed us that test revealed that the stroke cause major swelling in the brain and because of that she had damage to her brain stem and was brain dead. The next day she was removed from life support and passed away.
Now I can't explain what happened in those early morning hours, some tell me it was a warning and others just don't know. What do you think?
