How dead is dead?

Yeah, a dismal thing to blog about, but I have some concerns here. I always figured if you were dead you were just dead. I've read about people who 'see the light' and are sent back to finish living. Since I died from a seizure in the hospital a few weeks ago, and I'm back with no light around, I began to puzzle over this. My good friend Charles, died in surgery - he left his body and floated up at the ceiling while they worked on his body. Then he went back into it. No light there. Mine was a really bad seizure (just found out I am having those and hope the meds are stopping them) and my smart child called the hospital to tell them I had dropped the phone and was making weird noises - told them to go check on me. It took them awhile to make me start breathing again, but I didn't see any light. When I told my doctor I had died in the hospital, his first question was did I see the light - sisnce another of his patients had died and really seen the light. Who knows? So I have decided there is really dead, maybe dead, sorta dead and somewhat dead. Not sure where I was in this list, but I'm really glad I'm not dead. Ideas, anyone?

Well, a classic commentary on the subject can be found here:

I think you were only starting to be a very little bit dead. If I hadn't insisted on hollering like a stuck pig through the phone to anyone in San Angelo who would listen, I think you probably would have gotten to be mostly dead and seen the light. And then they would have brought you back. I'm not going to apologize for your missing that...! :)

Love you.

I can wait to see the light - truly
it is not an experience I need right now. Ithink you are right - I was a little bit dead and thankfully (to you) I got help and missed the light. Someday I hope to see it, bu don;t think I am finished here. ???

when my children were little, they were sure that being altogether dead was a matter of shutting your eyes ALL THE WAY...
