Power of Love
On March 25, 2010, Kate Ogg gave birth to premature twins. The fraternal twins were just 27 weeks old. Emily managed to survive the birth, but her brother Jamie was not breathing. Doctors tried to resuscitate Jamie for 20 minutes but were unsuccessful. Jamie was placed on his mother’s chest so that Kate and her husband David could say goodbye to their son. Five minutes into the agonizing process of biding a final farewell to their child, the parents saw their son start moving. The doctor claimed that such movements were merely reflex actions, not signs of life, but Kate and David asked for a few more minutes with their dying son. A few minutes turned into two hours, and Jamie opened his eyes.
The doctor took some convincing to believe that there was actually a tiny Lazarus in the room and not just a pair of grieving parents desperate to deny the painful reality. When the doctor put a stethoscope on Jamie’s chest, however, he realized that Jamie had somehow fought his way back to life. The boy made a full recovery and has not had a single medical problem since.
