A description of the experience
After the surgery, I remember just laying my head down on the side... and I cried till I could cry no more. I was holding onto the side of the bed, praying that I had made the right decision, and that if my son lived, that I would do the best I could for him.
All of a sudden this white light bathed my son, and I knew he was going to live. It was just around my son. Immediately I knew that everything was alright. I knew that from that point on my son was going to survive.
I thought I was hysterical at the time, that maybe I had cried so much that I was hallucinating... but I knew, when I saw that light that my son was going to be alright and I stopped suffering.
