In 2001, my 17-year-old son was rushed to hospital with suspected appendicitis. While sitting in a cubicle to go on to the ward with my son who was very scared I called silently on the angels to help him and be with him. I immediately felt a shift in the energy of the room. I could sense (but not see) an angelic being at the bottom of the trolley he was lying on. My son then totally unprompted said ‘there is a huge golden angel at my feet’. He then became very calm and peaceful about his impending operation. The angel stayed with him throughout the night making it easier for me to leave to tend to my other children at home.
