Ester told me yesterday about her near-death experience a couple of years ago. She was operated on for a ruptured appendix -- she should have died, but did not. She didn't give the details of that experience, I didn't give her a chance. It was not because I didn't believe in near-death experiences... Sign in to see full entry.
