Did I Experience ???HEAVEN???MY Story

In 1982, I had Kidney surgery....they say it is the most dangerous surgery you can have...I guess the blood pressure or whatever, but I had no choice...
I had problems develop a couple of years before the surgery....I was the 3rd person in the US to have it and save the Kidney..generally they remove it..as it had already started to balloon out...but a new surgeon had arrived where we lived and he had been trained to save the Kidney....So he did....That day was..........DECEMBER 23, 1982...
After surgery, I spent the first few days in ICU and then was transported to my room....on about the 3rd day....now that I write the # 3 I think of my #3 in the sky.
I remember being put in my bed....checked by the nurses and then went to sleep...
A few hours later this is what happened:
I found myself somewhere, a larger inside area...on one side there was a platform like with several women standing, talking, laughing...All so relaxed and happy looking.. ...I realize that one of the women is one of my older cousins....They turn and look at me....all smiling....
In the other side of the room, I hear children playing....happy...laughing...full of joy, but in  my thinking they are all young....but so so happy.
In a distance I hear what sounds like two cars hitting...A huge wreck of two cars as they hit so hard....I turn to the women and they continue to talk and laugh..I say to my cousin  "Shouldn't someone go check on the wreck?"  My cousin just smiles and laughs and says to me "Oh, no no one get hurts here"...So I just stood there....Then I realize how very very tired I am.....and I wonder where I can rest.
I turn and there behind me is Two of the most Large Wooden Doors...I think, they are so Big and Heavy looking, how can I get them open...The next thing, I am walking through the doors...There were so  light to the touch.....
I walk into this huge huge empty room....almost empty....The entire room is made of Crystal....Crystal Walls,,,,Crystal Floors....the most beautiful room I had ever seem....and in the middle of the room stands a:
Crystal Baby Grand Piano and Crystal Stool....I look around me in amazement but I am still so tired...so I think....I can go lay down beside the Piano and rest....so I do.
As I lay there, I look up....over me is a Crystal Dome....Going so high up that there was no ending....I lay there looking up into the Crystal Dome, when I hear a voice.
The voice said to me...."Do you want to stay?"  Or Do You Want to Return"  At first I wanted to stay....Again the voice asked me again the same questions...I am so tired....that I just want to rest....but I felt I should answer...So as I looked up into the Crystal Dome......I tell the voice....
"I have to go back, I have to take care of my children"..Then the voice says to me,
"If you want to go back, you have to pick up the crystal bar and throw it in the dome....I am thinking to myself....I have to go back, I have to take care of my children...but I am so tired there is No Way I can throw anything....Finally, I
Pick up the Crystal Bar and I throw it up into the dome....as soon as I did...
I immediately felt myself go back into my body in the hospital room...It was like a
thump as I felt myself .....at that moment I opened my eyes...It was 2:15a.m.
At 4:30a.m. I woke up chocking....I try and finally rang the nurse call button...I am so weak, I can not get myself to stop from chocking....I say to myself....I have died once tonight, I do not want to die again...About that time the nurse comes in...
For years, I have shared this with a few people...a few on here....I shared it at the hospital a few days before Ken died.....Several of us had shared an experience of what they felt was something like Heaven....
After this happened to me, I wondered, did I really die,,,did I really experience a part of Heaven....but then the thought would come to me about being taught about Heaven and that the streets are of Gold....But after this experience, I feared no death.....and I remembered every detail of it....as I have shared...but what kept coming to me when I would think of it was that I had been taught in church that Heaven had streets of Gold, so for many years I never took the time to look it up in the Bible for myself.....a few years ago I did and this is what I read not exact words but it did seem to answer my question.....The Bible says of Heaven, Streets of Gold as as transparent Glass....Truthfully, when I read it, I could not believe it...
Streets of Gold, as Crystal...or as Transparent Glass...I found this in Rev. 21...
I still wonder, I still question "Did I experience a bit of Heaven?"  Since 1982, I have wondered....I think of this often....As far as I know I was not on any medicine from the surgery as it had been three days since the surgery....I do know that it was an amazing thing to happen....
I have always heard that if you have something like this happen,,,you never ever forget....You never fear death...I don't know that I fear death...I fear pain that I might experience ....but not death....
Just thought I would share this with you...and wonder what is your thought on this....?

It sounds like you had a near death experience...my grandmother had one when I was only 11...when she told of it...it brought me such comfort...I remember being amazed and so happy that there was a heaven. Love and hugs...Karen

I agree - I think you experienced heaven. I also agree with you about fearing death. I don\'t fear dying but I am fearful of the pain surrounding it and the pain it will cause family and friends.

WOW! what an experience. Am thinking and thinking about it, I was in a field of wild birds and flowers, in the i.c.u. The sun was too bright, I wanted to go back inside. But there I was for a few days it seems. I heard people\'s voices, but they could not hear me. Later I thought it had been the murals in the room, but there weren\'t any.

I agree with everyone else you did have a near death experience. A day before my Mother passed away, she told me she saw heaven. I believe she said she also talked to God and everything is going to be just fine. I was just 15 dont really remember if I understood fully what she was saying but she was so clear and calm.

I\'ve heard that NDE are much more common than anyone ever thought. That was on the show I saw \"Science of the Soul\". It\'s just like you people just don\'t talk much about it. Yes I think you did have a glimpse of heaven. Sending you love Sandi, Terry
