Intuitively knowing about my father in hospital's condition

That experience seems ordinary enough that, by chance alone, I would expect dozens* of PFers would have experienced it (father in hospital, guessed diagnosis and prognosis before learning of them).
There were very few possibilities here: you could think of lungs, intestines, stomach, or some less-likely organ; you could imagine him being fine, having a long hospital stay, or dying. A person's father might be hospitalized under similar conditions several times. It just doesn't strike me as unusual -- and it's a far cry from paranormal.
* If not hundreds. Depends on how you count them.
Yes, this one situation could be discounted base don statistical likelihood. And I would if I didn't have many other similar experiences.
