My Grandfather Saved Me


I am new to this site. Just a little bit of back ground. I am 34 years old. In June of this year I was diagnosed with a tumor behind my eye which meant that my brain is not releasing the fluids. So the specialist said that I must go for a operation to put in a shunt, I was very scared of doing it I had the feeling that I will not survive the operation, eventually my family talked me in to go for the operation. In July they operated on me. Everything was going wonderful I felt like a new person, however everything changed a week after the operation.

The second night I was at home I was still unable to move around and to do things on my own. The night I told my husband I am not feeling too well. When I finally get to sleep something weird happens. I saw my grandfather (he passed away some 8 years ago) in the corner of my room he was standing there with tears in his eyes. I immediately woke up I was feeling very bad. I was sweating a lot. My head was killing me. I asked my husband if he saw my grandfather, he said no I told him about what I saw and said maybe it is the pain medication that is working or something. By the time it was morning I was so sick that he rushed me to hospital at the hospital they took my vitals my blood pressure was very low. Due to the fact that they don't have any beds in hospital they sent me home telling us that if my situation gets worse I must come back. So we went home I got so bad that my bp was at 40/26. As I was sleeping my grandfather appeared again in the same corner of the room, he was looking at me and for the first time I felt calmness coming over me. And I heard him clearly saying its not my time to go I must hang in there everything will be okay.

What happened after that they had to do an emergency operation the shunt had a problem. The doctor saw me after everything was over and he said it is a miracle that I am still alive.

I believe that my grandfather was looking out for me this whole time.

Thank you for reading my story.

Go check your story "Nishi." Miracles took the time to break everything down for you. Now, let's give this page back to the OP.

Badjuujuu remember you are as old/young as you feel 😉 I do apologize for any grammar or spelling mistakes in advance.
Raftingirl: I also believe that our loved ones are able to help and guide us in times of need. I have always believed in the paranormal I had lots of experiences as a young girl up to now how ever all of them are not good ones but I will post more of my experiences.
Valkricry: I am the oldest of the grandchildren and yes my grandfather was my hero. My mom told me that when I was born the second week my grandfather en grandmother came to get me to go on holiday with them 😭. Every year in December I would go with them to the sea. When I had to start school I could not go with them anymore my mom said I was crying so much that he decided to cancel their holiday and to rather visit us, he was the best of the best.

Good Morning ifihadyoux

It is a compliment to been seen as a young adult 😆 my blood sugar wasn't low my blood pressure sorry that is what the bp stands for. The feeling of seeing my grandfather was overwelming even if I think back now it was so real

To maritzalin- It was a nice story. Thanks for sharing it with us.

To Badjuju- I have recently posted (on Monday evening) an experience of my maternal grandfather. But it was not published and the reason given was 'the website doesn't accept stories that come from 'a friend of a friend' as it is too unreliable'.

With all due respect,

Due to some of the experiences I've had, I think it is quite possible you really did see your Grandfather. Were you close to him in life? I'm curious because of a theory I'm working on.

ifihadyoux - yes - apparently we must be over 35 to be considered middle aged;)

Maritzalin - I'm glad you had your Grandfather there for you. I've experienced something similar. Your story was very touching, and I'm glad you came through:) Maybe you will get to see him again on a happier note:)

Ifihadyou, I've never figured out the age system lol. I'm 33, feel 103, classified as a young adult. /sigh. I guess I'll just take the compliment lol.
Maritzalin, I believe our loved ones can appear to comfort us in times of need. It seems your need was very great, and your grandfather was there for you. I'm happy the surgery was successful, and hope you're doing well.

34 is considered a young adult? Ok then. Moving on...

I am sorry to hear about the tumor but am glad you are all right. Though when you have low blood sugar people are known to hallucinate however if you were really close to death, it is possible your grandfather was looking out for you.
