correct gut feeling
When my ma's ma was taken into hospital in 1988 with cancer I immediately had the gut feeling that she wouldn't come out alive and I started grieving then. I was correct and she never came round from the operation.
In 1996 My dad's dad was taken in for cancer. I had the same gut feeling, same outcome.
On a more positive note, in 1986 my mother was taken in for breast cancer. I had the gut feeling that everything would be OK and sure enough it was. She's still here now.
And in 1992 my brother was involved in a serious car crash and left in a coma. My gut feeling was that again everything would turn out OK and it did, he made a full recovery despite it being 70/30 against at one point.
Who else has had similar feelings that turn out to be correct?
