In 2008 I was a practicing cardiac-anesthesiologist. I was Chief of Anesthesiology at a heart hospital, and derived my identity and happiness from the work I did and my family. But in August of that year - everything was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. A routine surgery to treat it, in the same month, led to complications that left me incontinent and in excruciating pain due to scar formation. Due to these complications I was forced back into surgery a further three times between Aug and Dec 2008.

I was having a difficult labour. Behind the placenta there was bleeding. I was trying to push but felt quite weak, so forceps were used to get her out. She was beautiful! I remember they placed her on me but I was at the point where they had to remove her, I was too weak.

I was ill in bed and the pain, suffering and noise was all just getting too much and I remember thinking "I can't take anymore," and gave up.
Suddenly I'm floating in this lit grey volume (lovely colour of grey) in complete bliss (the word bliss doesn't even come close to the feeling) and thinking "I'm at peace." Then I thought "well, if this is death, it's brilliant."

I am a nurse, and was on duty running the ER I had no idea what was happening. The experience involved visuals but more ...feelings. Profound, never-before felt feelings of love, kindness and joy. Elation. Complete calm. I was fully dressed in the hospital bed. In this "waiting room", as I aptly select to term it, was bathed in bright, golden light. I was wearing a light grey yoga-type garment.
Two drownings in childhood

After the moment of my death, I became like a breath, and was "breathed" into the body of a nude, non-gender being. I was standing alone on a bare, sandy beach, before a fairly still body of water, above which was an open, blue sky. I was very confused and frightened.
