Last summer, when I was leaving the house to pick up my brother to take him to some appointments, I noticed an ambulance several doors down at a neighbor's house. I didn't pay much attention to it. I didn't know that person very well.
My brother and I took our time in town and I took him back to his house and dropped him off. On my way home, all I had to do was stay on the main drag all the way through the center of the city and north to my house. I live about 3 miles north of the city limits. While driving, I all of a sudden got a feeling that I should go up a few blocks and then turn right and go all the way over to the east side of town and go home that way. It would be about 2 miles east, then when I would get out of the city, I would have to go northwest to get home. Only a few miles out of the way. I actually said out loud to myself "That doesn't make any sense, I can stay on here and go straight home." I decided that I would just go straight home.
However, when I got to the place to turn east, I got an overwhelming urge to turn. It was as if someone had yelled "TURN!"
Anyway, I did turn and go the long way through town. When I got just past the hospital on the northeast side of town, I saw a person walking on the side of the road. It was the neighbor from several doors down from me. I stopped and asked him if he needed a ride. He accepted. He was wearing cotton booties from the hospital and walking on the gravel shoulder of the road. It was very hot out and he was sweating a lot.
He told me that earlier, he had had severe chest pain and had called the ambulance. They took him to the hospital dressed as he was, without shoes. After a few hours and some treatment, he was released. He said he would have had to wait a couple more hours for the hospital to give him a ride home, but he couldn't wait because his 13 year old daughter would get home by then and she didn't have a key to get into the house, so he was walking home.
After I dropped him off at his house and went home, I realized why I was "told" to turn and go the long way home. It was to help him.
