I was in the hospital for 3 months with bacterial pneumonia. I had renal and pulmonary failure. There was not much hope for survival. They had me in a medically induced coma in order for my body to have a shot. Apparently I fought it with everything I had. I tried to rip the breathing tube out of my mouth and had to be tied to the bed so I wouldn’t succeed.
When I came to, I wrote welcome to Jeopardy on a pad of paper with my limited motor skills at the time. I was terrified that they were going to amputate my leg and I was convinced that it was going to happen or had already happened but the doctor’s and my parents were afraid to tell me. I tried to be strong and not upset anyone else because my family had been through enough so I was going to accept the amputation and I would be okay. It took me 3 days once I was awake to ask about my leg. They all looked at me like I was crazy, no they were not going to amputate my leg, why would they do that? I found out that in the next room over, there was a gentleman who was diabetic and they were going to amputate his leg and I heard that when I was in the coma and assumed they were talking about me. (Had surgery to fix my collapsed right lung, no amputations.)
Also I dreamt that I was in jail for a DUI in Virginia and I was in a car accident after hitting a cow so that is why I hurt.
Another dream was that God and Satan were battling for my soul but it was all in anime. It was in black and white as well. Oh and there was a bunny rabbit that wanted to kill me that lived in the television and it would attack if the tv was on.
And the final dream I remember was that I was in Ocean City, MD and I went on the Haunted House ride. Well the ride was a front and they would kidnap random people on the ride. I was kidnapped and they forced me to lay on the cold cement floor wearing a backless latex jumpsuit. The pain and ache of being on the cold floor gives me chills to this day. I was then sold to a graduate student who was doing some sort of 24 hour a day weaving. The weaving was on my back and it was in public for everyone to see me suspended while they wove thread through my back to make a weird design. I was suspended from hooks into my skin while this was happening. I assume that this was due to the doctors stitching me up after the surgery.
