We are pleased to announce our speaker for our August 22nd IANDS meeting will be Lori Tidwell. Lori’s two near-death experiences both occurred as the result of complications from Cesarean deliveries.
Her first experience occurred while she and her second-born son were struggling to survive his birth. His condition in the newborn intensive care unit was deteriorating, while Lori was slowly bleeding to death. For 7 minutes that felt like a couple of hours, she felt that she was in the presence of God and Christ. She experienced great joy amid her pain, and was reassured that everything would be all right.
Her second experience occurred during the birth of her fourth son. As the delivery roomed hummed with activities to stop Lori from hemorrhaging and get her son breathing, Lori found herself in a large white room, speaking with her 15-year old sister who had died 8 months before, three young men, and another young woman who had also died in an accident. Lori could hear the activity in the delivery room while she was talking with her sister.
Lori later learned that the young men were her son and two of his cousins, who were born later the same month. The three cousins were inseparable in earth-life, and Lori’s cross-over may addressed the need to separate them long enough for her son to be birthed. The experience reassured her that her deceased sister knew her son and his two cousins.
The August 22nd IANDS meeting will begin at 7PM in the Salt Lake County Commission hearing Room in the north building of the County Government Center located at 2001 South State, SLC. We meet the fourth Friday of each month except December. Bring a friend as meetings are free of charge.
