This story takes place, in NC on January 15th 2010, (the day after the birth of my youngest son) and to this day I am not really sure what I saw/experienced,
Let me start with saying this... The hospital where I gave birth at is considered to be haunted, and have had many reports of strange occurrences and happenings.
I was laying in the hospital bed watching random things on tv, I was alone in my room considering my husband had to work and would be back later that night.
As I layer there flipping through the channels I kept glancing towards the bathroom door, I'm not sure why but it gave me the creeps, I never truly felt alone in the room, and I could swear there was someone or something in that bathroom, as the time passed I started to get an uneasy feeling! I started feel dizzy and cold, and as if I could barely move.
As I rationalized with myself that the fever I had that morning had returned and I was also probably tired and needed to rest, I was just about to hit the call button and ask for more blankets (by this time I was shivering) when I heard The door opening, thinking it was the nurse coming for the thousandth time to check my vitals.
As I looked towards the open door, I saw a nurse just standing in the door way, she didn't come in she just stood there smiling at me right off I felt put off by how silently she just stood there smiling, she never uttered a word, she just stood there...smiling.
Now a few things about her got to me:
1. She wasn't dressed in modern-day scrubs like the other nurses/doctors, she had on a white nurses dress, white shoes, and white hat, sort of like you would see in the 40's or so.
2. She appeared to African american, and the nurse I had earlier was white,
3.she never spoke, and never took her eyes of me,
4. She never stopped smiling at me
As I stood there staring back at her, I couldn't move, and begin to get even more colder, and I'm not sure why but I just couldn't take my eyes off her.
As I laid there looking back at her the normal hospital hallway behind her begun to change (now mind you I was on the 7th floor) I begin to see trees and tombstones in what to appeared to be a grave yard, and then I begin To hear what sounded like People singing, and as the singing got closer she kind of turned to the side (all the while her eyes never left me and she never stopped smiling) and then I begin to see about 6 men (dressed in old fashioned dress suits) carrying a casket and singing (couldn't make out exactly what they were singing... Some kind of African american hymnal) they all entered the room walking right past her (looking straight ahead) and walked straight into the bathroom (the door was closed might I add) and as the last one went into the bathroom the room door closed.
Slowly but surely I didn't feel cold anymore, but I was still frozen with fear (I was beyond creeped out) I just prayed and prayed, and not 5 minutes later there was a knock at the door and the nurse that I had earlier walks in, she takes my vitals, give me my next dose of pain meds and then informs me that the shifts were about to change and that she was leaving for the the night and the nurse for the night would be in shortly and then she left.
About 10 minutes later I hear another knock on the door by this time (the meds have already started to kick in, so I had started to snooze,) the nurse comes in and introduces herself (can't remember her name to save my life) the majority of the time I'm talking to her with my eyes closed, she then asked me if I'm ok and do I need anything (trying not to appear as rude or anything) I turn to look at her before I speak again as I open my eyes and look up... I swear I was looking at the same African American nurse that stood in the doorway earlier, (except she was wearing modern-day scrubs) and she didn't seem as eerie but I just froze, not knowing what to say or do. She asked me again was I ok, and I just nodded my head and muttered a quick yes (never taking my eyes off her) she told me if I needed anything to push the button and let her know, she then smiled at me and walked out of the room.
Sleep quickly took me over, and the next thing I remember is waking up to her taking my vitals here and there throughout that night, but I couldn't stay awake for very long (due to the pain meds) I just remember that whenever I was woken up by her she was always staring down at me with this knowing look as if she knew what I had seen and she was always smiling! And when I woke up the next day she had already left and I ended up with another nurse that night and I was discharged the next day... So I never did see her again, it's been 7 years and I can still remember that experience as if it was yesterday it still gives me chills!
