NDE (near death experience) and my personal journey

Updated: Dec 8, 2023

On July 18th at about 1am in the morning I woke up my friend and in a deep commanding voice said, "We need to go to the ER now! I'm dying". Those words and the car ride up to Waimea's North Hawaii Community Hospital emergency room started my Near Death Experience.

After 2.5 months, 10 surgeries and multiple infections of my wounds I'm finally home.

How did it feel to almost die? Was it a bright light and angels? No. It was terrifying.

"Why are we even alive?" This is what a strange voice said to me as I lay in the ICU in Queens on Oahu. "What's the point of living?" When I heard those sentences I could feel myself slipping away- physically and emotionally just letting go of my LIFE. I just laid there with the most terrifying feelings I have ever had. I felt like there was no meaning or reason to life.

Slowly (I imagine it was an hour or so but I don't know) I started answering the voice back. "If I live I will (makes promises)." I started making bargains for my life- for living. I made promises (that is private- sorry).

Slowly I could feel myself coming around to being optimistic and that I was going to live and thrive through all the 10 vsurgeries I had to have performed to live. I ended up healing a 6" wound in 3 weeks (!!) instead of 1 year!!

One of my promises was to try and educate others about NF (Necrotizing fasciitis). Please see my KITV news segment here:

What does this story have to do with my ability to be your real estate agent? Nothing really- it's a huge part of who I am.
