I'm not sure why, but I have been thinking about this a lot recently. A couple years ago I was talking to a co-worker about heart-attacks. He was concerned about his brother, who had recently gained weight. We were talking about how men who carry weight in their middle are at higher risk of a heart attack. I replied that my father was at very high risk of having a heart attack.
We continued our work day, and about an hour later our phone rang. Someone called out to me that the call was for me- it was my sister. I knew immediately that something was wrong. My family never called me at work. I walked to the phone with a sense of dread. My sister told me our father was in the hospital, and had just had a heart attack. I felt the blood drain from my face and starting shaking.
It turned out that the hospital had tried to contact me first, but was calling our county library rather than the city one. Baiscally, while I had said that my dad was a prime candidate for a heart attack, he was having one.
I don't know why this has been on my mind lately, but it makes me wonder. Do you think we can feel when something happens to a loved one? Is it coincidence? A sixth sense?
Have you ever experienced anything like this???
