Comedian/actor, Tracey Morgan recently sat down to talk to Oprah for her Soul Sunday Show and he revealed two things that were almost hard to believe. He detailed what it was like for him while he was still in the hospital fighting for his life following the 2014 car crash that took his best friend, James McNair’s, life.

One thing that was really foul was that Tracy said his wife, Megan, was not informed of his near fatal car crash until 6 hours later when she heard about it through the media and that the police involved with the crash investigation contacted the media first, instead of her. Tracey said that made his wife EXTREMELY angry, understandably so:

“The police called the media before they called her,” he said. “I got hit at 12.59am. She did not know I was in the hospital in a coma til 6 o’clock in the morning. She thought she was gonna get there and I was gonna have a broken leg, making the nurses laugh… no; they said ‘Mrs Morgan, are you prepared?’ he recalled.
“Then they took her up to ICU and she flipped.”

He said that when he asked afterwards how he looked when she first seen him, she replied “dead.”

Tracy also revealed that while he was still in his 8 week coma, he believes he took a trip to an afterlife, where he vividly remembers a conversation he had with his deceased father, who passed away from the AIDS virus in 1987 at the age of 39 due to drug needle use. Watch the video below:

“I was talking to my dad. He had this green thing on… I just remembering him saying ‘I’m not ready for you son.’ And I started crying so hard. And my dad was like ‘I’m not ready for you son.'”

Watching Tracy Morgan tell his story reminds me of an Old School saying our parents and Grandparents always said: “God never gives us more than we can handle.” Tracy has been through a lot and the death of his best friend is the most painful part of it all, but somehow he has managed to start his journey of healing and has begun his new reality with a new story to tell and help others. Keep pushing forward Tracy!
