from your involvement?
Hi Bob, and thank you for posting a real question
I did have something happen, and I've been debating whether it was coincidence or not ever since.
So Ryan and I started really investigating the dibbuk box about 2 weeks ago, but it was last week when we were told that we would have the opportunity
to have Jason Haxton on our show, so we went into over drive researching and we both bought his book "The Dibbuk Box".
Well last Thursday my mom had an episode with tachycardia and atrial fib. First a bit of background for perspective; My mom had been diagnosed with
tachycardia about a year and a half ago but it was about a year ago she had an episode where she went into atrial fib. I brought her to emerge and we
were all surprised to find that the doctor had to shock her heart to get her out of atrial fib and to get her heart rate down.
So nothing had happened from that incident until last Thursday. Thursday was much worse. I dropped my mom and my sister off at emerge late Thursday
night and was waiting for the call to come pick her up; instead, I was told they had shocked my mom's heart four times and she was still in atrial
fib, and they had put her in ICU and was giving her a medicine via IV that was supposed to fix it.
The next day I went to visit my mom and was told that the drug wasn't working, she was still in atrial fib, and usually this drug works on patients
in 6 hours; for mom, it was 12 hours and still not working. Not only were we all worried, but I was actually asking my family if they thought it could
somehow be tied to the box, and they all shooed me and said it was silly.
Saturday afternoon I went to visit my mom and it seemed that the drug, although taking a full 24 hours had finally worked. My mom was now taking the
medicine in pill form and her blood pressure was down, heart rate was down, and she was out of atrial fib. She was sitting up in a chair, smiling and
being silly, and excited because she thought she would be able to come home the next day (Sunday). So that was a huge load off for me, which was great
for calming my nerves for the episode I was to record with Jason Haxton that night.
So I recorded the episode, started uploading it to YouTube and went to bed. When I got up I heard my moms tachycardia had come back but no atrial fib;
so it was bad, but not serious yet. My brother and I went to visit her in the ICU again, and this time it was the worst we had seen her. She was
miserable and apparently in and out of atrial fib for the past 2 hours before we had got there. Scared and wondering myself, I asked my wife and
family if they honestly thought it could be related to the box? This time they said they didn't think so, but they didn't want to talk about it just
So last night I texted mom at the hospital for an update, and she was doing better, but not great, but at least it was something. I went in today to
visit and she's doing much better, and hopefully she'll be able to go home tomorrow
So I don't know if that's due to the box or not, weird timing though; it could all very well be a coincidence, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't
honestly wonder if there was some connection. I actually mentioned what had happened up to that point to Jason in the podcast, and he said that heart
problems go hand in hand with victims of the box.
