|I had to have 1 of 4 spinal surgeries and of course I was frightened. I lied in a cold bed waiting to be taken in for the surgery, just then a nurse dressed in an old nurse's uniform with a cap that had a red cross on it with blue eye shadow came in the room and asked if my name was Chrystal. I said yes! She asked how I was doing and if I understood what was about to happen. I told her that no, I was not ok and that I knew that they were going to operate on my spine so I could stand properly again. She proceeded to take my hand and all of a sudden I began to feel a feeling of warmth. She told me that she was there to let me know that all would be just fine and I was going to come through the surgery, and that I should not worry. I told her of some of the horror stories I've been told about spinal surgery, and she reassured me that all would be fine. She told me to continue to have faith in my Father and to always trust Him and that He would be my protector, she then said she was going to give me something in my IV that would calm me, then she touched the IV bottle. I never saw her inject it with a needle, then she said she had to go.|
