When Rebecca DeRoller had her third child in July, 1998, she had a normal delivery and went home the next day. In the weeks that followed, she felt tired and started coughing and spitting up blood. She saw her doctor, but the medication he prescribed did not help. Finally, one day she became nauseous. While she was bent over a bucket, a voice in her head said, “Rebecca, you’re dying,” and she went to an emergency room.
There, she was told her lungs were saturated with blood, her liver was three times its normal size and she was having heart failure. She was, indeed, dying.
