Since I work in a hospital, and the type of unit I work in, unfortunately, I have seen or been exposed to a lot of people dying.
While I cannot relate any exact stories for obvious reasons, I can tell you very strange things happen when people die. It depends on what they die
from, of course, but in patients that are semi conscious, not in a coma, amazing things happen.
As the poster above stated, there is an old saying. The light gets brighter before it burns out. This is a true statement in a lot of cases. People
will suddenly sit up, start talking like they are just fine, often ask for a favorite food or drink, and say amazing things about angels, Jesus, and
family members long deceased - then almost as suddenly die.
Some people will hallucinate, or so we think, and sometimes for days will go through motions of hanging laundry, doing dishes, playing ball. Whatever
they did in their life, as if they were reliving it. They will see people in their rooms, and we call that The Sign. When that happens, especially if
they see angels ir Jesus, or are 90 and see Momma, we know what is to come.
We have even had patients in rooms a couple of doors down, that had NO way of knowing anything about the patient in 4B, call the nurse and ask, "Did
that red haired lady just die? I know she did, because she came by to see me and tell me I am going to be alright. Then she said goodbye."
I do not believe we know what we think we know. I definitely think there is more than adrenaline or '___' or other things, because I have seen and
heard things that have zero reasonable explanation, like the one above.
The one thing I absolutely detest, and that makes me sad and angry at the same time, is when people die alone. It feels SO wrong, and I think someone,
anyone, shoukd just go and hold their hand while they cross over. I will never change my opinion on this.
