It was a final chance to say goodbye for grieving mother Kate Ogg after doctors gave up hope of saving her premature baby.
She tearfully told her lifeless son - born at 27 weeks weighing 2lb - how much she loved him and cuddled him tightly, not wanting to let him go.
Although little Jamie’s twin sister Emily had been delivered successfully, doctors had given Mrs Ogg the news all mothers dread - that after 20 minutes **of [size=4]battling to get her son to breathe, **[/size]they had declared him dead.

Having given up on a miracle, Mrs Ogg unwrapped the baby from his blanket and held him against her skin. And then an extraordinary thing happened.
**After [size=3]two hours of being hugged, touched and spoken to by his mother, the little boy began showing signs of life.[/size]
***At first, it was just a gasp for air that was dismissed [size=4]by doctors as a reflex action.**[/size]
But then the startled mother fed him a little breast milk on her finger and he started breathing normally.
’I thought, “Oh my God, what’s going on”,’ said Mrs Ogg.
’A short time later he opened his eyes. It was a miracle. Then he held out his hand and grabbed my finger. ***
'He opened his eyes and moved his head from side to side.[size=3]The doctor kept shaking his head saying, [size=4]“I don’t believe it, I don’t believe it”.[/size]

I don’t normally tear-up and perhaps it’s because it’s almost 6am and I haven’t been to bed yet, but this miracle caused dampness and a big smile. Thanks for posting! :clapping:

Me too :bighanky:!
God is love and I believe He heard the tremendous love of these parents, talking to their little son (in the **present** tence), obviously believing he was** still** alive and could *hear them......

*Mrs Ogg
“But then* I felt him move** as** if he were startled*, he started gasping more and more regularly. I gave Jamie some breast milk on my finger, he took it and **started* regular breathing normally....
..... for me, he was directed to return and it was at* this** point, his life giving soul re- entered his little body.*
Praise God Always :bowdown:!

Wow. That is all I can say… Thanks for sharing the story.:slight_smile:


#10

Thanks for such a beautiful story of how God works in miraculous ways!
It also gave me tears of joy.


#11

thats amazing. Quick question though, i guess its a good thing she was still with him. how long did she plan on holding him since he was pronounced dead?
you said two hours, right? im surprised they didn’t take the baby away, but thats a good thing!


#12

What a wonderful story! This really made my day!!


#13

Actually, I’ve heard many stories where they let the mother hold her dead baby for hours. It’s her child. She’s allowed.

Amazing story!


#14

I thought they’d eventually take it away because after about even an hour, the tend to start decomposing


#15

As wonderful as this story is, the parents now have to wait to see if the baby has suffered brain damage from those two hours. Under normal circumstances, being without oxygen for such a long time would result in death or profound brain damage.

Let us pray that the baby has escaped major brain damage.


#16

Praise God, indeed. :extrahappy: Let's continue with prayers for the little one and his family.
