As I often say, MUFON reports are to be taken with a grain of salt. In fact, I tend to bypass 99% of all the reports I read there. Suffice it to say, that was my plan today as well, until I got toward the end of a story from a woman in Tinley Park, IL.
The woman in the report claims she woke up in the middle of the night due to pain in her right hand. This is typically where I begin to see the obvious, however, I kept reading.
The report may give you the impression that she had been abducted at some point, although that is never mentioned:
Location: Tinley Park, IL. US
Case Number: 48398
Date of Event: 06/22/13
Awakened by pain in my right hand upon looking circular surgical incision with orange liquid around it and a shiny glass liquid over it all.
I was sleeping, something woke me up for a second. I tried to go right back to sleep but my right hand was hurting. It started to hurt more and more, until it hurt severely. I sat up and looked at my hand under my phone light. What I saw Made me say no no no, there was A pencil eraser sized incision in the middle of my palm The skin wasnt removed there was still a small like the point of a pencil sized piece of skin still attached to my hand. It had an Orange liquid around the incision and a like liquid band aid shiny like glass, ultra transparent and clear liquid over it all the size of a dime.
I couldnt believe what I saw. I had an overwhelming urge to go back to sleep I couldnt it hurt, I had to look at it again. I didnt want to look at it again. I looked at it again, I knew it was not normal. I knew this was serious and real. I tried to wake up my boy friend, I told him “Get up!, theres a hole in my hand!” I was smacking his shoulder, He said “Go back to sleep there is nothing wrong with you.” He would not look at my hand. All I wanted to do was go back to sleep. I looked at it for the third time and just shook my head and said “This is nuts!, This is crazy! The cat mustve did that.” I laid back down and just would not believe what I was seeing. The overwhelming urge to go back to sleep prevailed. Why I didnt take a picture, Why didnt I wake anyone else up, Why I didnt touch it. I dont know. It was unbelievable. I woke up the next morning not thinking of it at all, not remembering anything. Until my boyfriend woke up, And said “Oh yeah, (Sarcastically) What happened to the hole in your hand?” All of a sudden I remembered it all, I looked at my hand immediately. Not a trace of it was there. I know what I saw, and I dont think there has been a day since then that I dont think about it, worry about it, and am freaked out about it. Ive tried telling a few close friends and family. They dont even want to hear it. They tell me it didnt happen. I know what happened, I know what I saw, I know it was real. It was a surgical perfect incision with strange liquid. I want to know what happened to me, If this has happened to anyone else. In finishing I wasnt not supposed to see that.
My first inclination is that this whole episode is sleep related and the only place any of this happened is in the woman’s mind. However, something derailed my train of thought, if only slightly and that something is her boyfriend. I’ll get to that later; right now, I’d like to contemplate the possibilities.
Assuming for a moment that this story is legitimate and I think it might be, what she is most likely referencing is being abducted by someone. If we are to take it a step further and jump to the most popular of conclusions, these captors would be alien in origin. I’m sure you can guess the rest, but for those who can’t make the connection, her abductors performed surgery on her and implanted something into her hand.
Before you come all unglued and argue that implants are only jammed up the nose or stuck in through the ear, etc..consider the alleged history of alien implants while watching the following video with Dr. Rodger Leir. Dr. Leir is probably the most famous surgeon specializing in the removal of “alien implants” in the world.
Dr. Roger K. Leir, author of the Aliens and the Scalpel-First and Second Edition, “UFO Crash in Brazil”, “Casebook Alien Implants”, “Chopped Liver” and three other books published outside the United States, including “Implantes Alienegenas” published in Portuguese in Brazil, and “Ovnis and Implants” published in France by Le Mercure Dauphinois.
In this video, he files a report on his 16th implant removal surgery. Should you require more on him or implants in general, there are many selections on the subject over at Youtube.
Of course, this brings up a set of entirely different questions regarding Dr. Leir and the legitimacy of what he does. If you’d like to comment on the good doctor, by all means do so, however, I have to get back to the subject at hand, our Tinley Park episode.
I promised that I would get to the part of the story that could possibly legitimizing the whole kaboodle.
At one point she claims to have “smacked her boyfriend on the shoulder”, awakening him. At which point he is alleged to have reassured her with the soothing comment, “Go back to sleep, there is nothing wrong with you.”.
This is where we could decide whether she dreamed/had an episode, or it was really happening. But before we do that, lets entertain this little tidbit that came later in her description:
I woke up the next morning not thinking of it at all, not remembering anything. Until my boyfriend woke up, And said “Oh yeah, (Sarcastically) What happened to the hole in your hand?”
Now we have the woman claiming:
1. She was awake and aware.
2. She discovered that her hand looked as though it had been operated on.
3. She alerted her boyfriend after waking him.
4. Her boyfriend acknowledged her (if only to tell her to go to sleep).
5. Her boyfriend brings this episode up the next morning.
Again, if we are to accept that something really happened to her, we have to consider the idea that she actually did have this incision and clear liquid on her hand. On the other hand (no pun), there are some red flags to consider as well.
Red flag One: This happens in bed. If something is going to kill an unbelievable story in this genre, it’s having it occur in bed. Nothing says sleep related like the words “bed” and “bedroom”.
Red Flag Dos: Our victim not once, not twice, but four times clearly references “wanting to”, or “needing to sleep”. Is this a subconscious admission of sorts?
Red Flag C: In her last mention of the overwhelming urge to sleep, “sleep prevailed”. I don’t know how many of these stories I’ve read where, “sleep prevails”. Now, if I had just been abducted or had surgery performed on me while I was supposed to be in slumberland, going back to sleep would be the last thing I’d be doing. Logic tells us that we’d be so freaked out, we would likely stand on our heads and spit quarters before even considering sleep.
My logical conclusion leads me to lay out this scenario:
The woman reads something about aliens or is watching Falling Skies on TV every night. Whatever the trigger may be, something was coursing through her subconscious when she went to bed that night. During her REM cycle or whatever cycle she’s in, she has a very vivid dream, so vivid in fact that she sits up and wakes her boyfriend. He then gives her the OK to sleep again, so she does.
Because it’s a dream, she forgets the whole thing (as we often do with dreams), until her boyfriend reminds her with his comment the next morning. Of course, this brings the whole thing flooding back. However, with many dreams that we happen to remember later, she likely pieced together and filled holes with what she though to be most relevant to the overall story.
The bottom line is that acting out in dreams is more common than we might think according to WEBMD.
Researchers found 98% of young adults reported at least one acting out dream behavior at least rarely in the past year. The most commonly reported occurrence was related to fear after awakening from a scary dream.
The study also showed that women reported more speaking, crying, fear, and smiling or laughing after waking from a dream while men reported more sexual arousal after erotic dreams.

Am I saying what happened to Tinley Park woman is just an episode associated with sleep? Of course not, I wasn’t there. However, my scenario is far more believable than the idea of her having surgery performed on her hand between the time she went to bed and the next morning.
I will now leave it to the reader. You can agree with me or give your interpretation. At the very least, tell us what you’re thinking.
