Possible abduction? MILAB? Strange visit from the health department?

Hello An incident occured on the night before Easter in 2003, and its been nagging at me and my family since.

That night, my mother, who had a nasty respitory illness, woke up in what she described was like a drug induced haze (she was once a nurse in Emergency rooms, and has herself had a few surgeries, and thus knows very well what medical anesthesia feels like, and she said this was very similar). She saw fuzzy images of what appeared to her as best she could tell, were people in full surgical garb. One of the "doctors" called her by name, told her everything would be ok. She remebers a needle being inserted in her arm, and blood taken. She couldnt speak, other than grunt, and was very confused before she blacked out again.

The next morning she woke up. She saw a needle pincture in her arm and was very concerned. My stepfather, who was also in the bed with her, woke. He also had one, which scared him. To understand better, my stepfather has a serious phobia of needles. When he sees the doctor, he must be sedated before they can poke any sort of needle into him, because he literally vomits and passes out on seeing needles. he often must leave the room when they doctors take blood from my mother. He remebered nothing, but was feeling very drowsy and run down, and felt confused. They both came in and asked me if I had let paramedics in the night before, and I told them no.

That night, I myself was playing on my computer. Since I was working a grave yard shift at the time, I had only woken up at about 8 P.M. Yet after 2 hours of being awake, I suddenly was overcome with such drowsiness and exhaustion, I simply crawled onto the cot I slept on, and fell asleep within minutes, which was VERY strange. I woke up feeling sore all over, which was weird, but no puncture or needle marks on my arms at all, and no recollection of anything the night before.

When they both showed me these strange needle marks, i was indeed very interested. They told me they themselves fell asleep suddenly, probably around the same time i did, judging by what was on TV when they fell asleep.

What was even weirder is that my cats, all of them were very spooked the next day. This was very interesting, as my largest cat never gets spooked. Vacuum cleaners, dogs, loud sounds, nothing phases him, yet I found him hiding under a bunch of boxes, and he hissed at me everytime i tried to reach in and get him. The other cats were terrified and hiding in other places.

My stepfather also told me the door was unlocked. I remeber him locking the door every night, and remembered him doing that. We lived in a bad area (White Center) and always made sure it was locked, but the door seemed locked, and the cats would go no where near it.

Anyway, this whole thing was very strange. We have been puzzling over it for these past two years, and Ive done a bit of research, and cannot seem to find any possible explainations. Although I have always been interested in the UFO phenomenon, and have done alot of personal research and study, and even had a sighting years ago, at that time, it seemed that the alien abduction theory was not a serious question.

However, as I do more looking into it, I have become a bit more confused. I feel that perhaps submitting a report to NUFORC would be the best option. If you folks dont do abduction reports, feel free to send it on to whoever you feel would be best for this subject, if it is indeed typical of abductions. If there is a mundane explaination, like a bizarre midnight visit from the health department (the SARS epidemic was big news at the time, and my mother did have a bad lung infection), Id like to know as well. Im really interested in getting to the bottom of this "high strangeness" and am looking for an answer, mundane or otherwise.

Feel Free to contaqct me for any further information by phone or email or other, and Ill be happy to answer any questions.

Thank you.

Sincerely, ((name deleted))
