Hospital Recovery Room

Updated on November 29, 2017


One moment I was happily working in my shop and chatting away to customers then unexpectedly disaster !

I was suddenly taken ill and the next thing that I remember was being rushed into the emergency room of the hospital,where,luckily ,everything was sorted out .

It wasn't a speedy process , I was a long time in surgery, with quite a few complications, but eventually ,after a small operation, I was transferred into the recovery room.

Count to three

Meanwhile after the operation I was wheeled on my bed into a very large elevator.

I remember that I didn't feel tired.I heard a male nurse asking me 'can you count to three please?'

Then I heard giggling! I thought my feet were icy cold and when I said to the male nurse 'my feet are very cold' I heard yet more giggling.


I awoke in a large room with many bright lights on. The room was full of women who were all sleeping ,or so it appeared. They seemed to be perfectly relaxed in their very deep sleep.Almost as though they were unconscious.

I was wearing my new baby doll nightdress,it was a beautiful silky item in pale blue and white.

I climbed out of the bed, and the silence now changed ,as a vibrating sound occurred.

I realised it was the small wheels on the bottom of my bed which had turned as I had moved.

I don't know why I got out of the bed,maybe it was just curiosity!

Sleeping Women

I was now standing beside the bed, I walked around the room looking at all the sleeping women, maybe wondering if i knew anyone!

My eyes came to rest on my own bed.

Somebody had the very same baby doll nightdress on ! The same as mine !

She moved !

I stared !

It was me !

I was lifted,taken in a floating movement .

A strange sensation of having no power,only able to observe.

Sweet Composure

I was looking at myself ! I was in sweet composure. Still asleep,although restlessly moving.

Still wearing the baby doll nightdress.

I felt a surge as I was aware of a floating feeling back to my bed.

I had a last look at the women who were still in very deep sleeps.

I Wondered

The giggling nurses came in and wheeled me out of the large recovery room.

Where had I been ? I wondered where I had been !

I still often think of that day,the same question still disturbs me !

'Where had I been?'

      I had a similar out of body experience when I was 11years old, when I was knocked down by car. I wrote a hub about the experience. It is strange how you don't realise what is happening. So, even though I was floating and looking down, on the crowd looking at the unconscious me in the road, I had not thought about how weird it was to be floating and looking down on it all lol...

      I had a simular experience in the recovery room. As a teen ages I had another out of body experience I will never forget. In a corner store I was confronted by three young men whom I felt were going to beat me down in a few moments, so I punch the closest in the face. than I hit another and the other. when they returned fire, I was hit in the back of my head with something that knocked me cold. When I came to the shop keeper was saying make sure he don't swallow his tongue. The three young men were gone and I was looking down on my body from the ceiling. I was at perfect peace and calm knowing I was dead. Then I came down in my body and awoke with a smile. You are an awesome. writer

      That is truly the surreal feeling of being in the recovery room - sort of there but not there - in and out of reality. You've captured the dream or reality quite nicely here. Well done! xxoo
