Sweet Jamie loves loves loves to go to the park and play ball. Even though she can hardly walk, her heart is so big that it will drag her across the grass to retreive the ball, no matter what.
We were enjoying a good game of "Throw it hard for Me" and "Toss it gently" for Jamie.
Abby and Scrappy were off checkin out the corn fields for skunks.
I ran out to get my ball when after an incredible high jump and catch I turned to come back to My Vickie when I noticed......Dear Jamie had just collapsed.
She was only about a foot from My Vickie and she also noticed the fall. WE both headed over to see if she was ok when our hearts sunk, cause we could tell.
this was not just a fall, this was the final fall.
Jamie had died in mid run.
My Vickie gently cradled little Jamie's head in her arms and felt for a heart beat. There was no breathing, no heart beat, Jamie was gone.
It was peaceful, she was doing what she wanted to do. As painful as this was, it was also beautiful.
My Vickie laid Sweet Jamies head down inthe grass next to her precious ball and we all just sat there.
Then, suddenly there was a jerk from Jamies little body. WE just thought it was one of those muscle movements after you died.....but no....not a muscle movement.
That darn Jamie opened her eyes with a jerk sat up and grabbed her ball in her mouth. WE just sat there with our mouths open.
Slowly she wobbled to her feet, turned around and dropped the ball near My Vickies hand. She wanted to play.
She came back for that stupid ball. Talk about obssesive behavior.
Follow Up Note:
WE took her home and called Dr. Doughty who is coming over in a bit to check her little heart, but was not surprised at all that she had died and come back to life. This is the girl with the biggest heart in the world and she knew My Vickie was not ready.......Not Yet.....
So here is the post we were going to put up today. But it is hardly worth reading after what we went through this morning.
My Vickie, KC and My Vickies mom and me went for a late evening drive to see how many of the leaves had changed. Here is a very short video of what we saw. Oh yes and the picture is of the great and wonderful BIG nosed golden leaping into the air. Try that Mango man.....
