I am Laika’s daughter. This is about the last time I saw my grandmother, or that she spoke to me. This was after I had an accident and went into a coma. I had this “dream” then but learned later, after waking, that she had died after I had entered that coma.
The accident happened in the San Gabriel Mountains, north of my home of Van Nuys, in Los Angeles County. I was taken to a hospital in Burbank. My grandmother had lived, in my entire lifetime, in San Francisco.
When I woke, three and one-half months later, this was the only dream I remembered having:
For some reason, I was in Santa Monica Beach, watching an ocean liner coming up to the Santa Monica pier! I had never seen an ocean liner there before. I don’t even know if the water is deep enough. Another strange thing was that many people were going to it! Maybe a hundred. One of them was my grandmother. She noticed me, walked over the sand, and told me “go back to Burbank.”
So I left, and woke up in Burbank. I learned later two things about my grandmother. She had died a few days after I entered that coma, and she had been unable to walk, needing someone to push her wheelchair.
This was a dream, but some things I wonder about. Were the people going to the ocean liner already dead? Why would she tell me to go to Burbank when Van Nuys was my home? Yes, I was in Burbank, but had got there without knowing about it. Why would I dream about my grandmother? I’ve also been told there were a few times when I might have died, too. Would I have died if my grandmother had not sent me back? I lived because of Grandma? I still wonder.
