“My oldest daughter was in a really bad accident,” she said, adding “with every safety measure that could be taken” when she “somehow or another, drove into the water.”

“We dove in and we were able to rescue her. When we were finally able to get her out of the water…and the first responders took from me, we thought she was gone. We thought we lost our daughter,” she revealed.

“That moment, I felt everything that you can feel, I think, as far as the worst. There’s nothing worse than looking at your child and just feeling that you’ve failed her. And I didn’t want her to think that I couldn’t save her.”

She then said she was air-lifted to the hospital, and her condition was critical.

“She wasn’t responding to anything and so it was not looking good for us,” she explained, saying she was asking for a priest to be let into the intensive care unit to pray for her daughter.

“He went to put the oil on her and read the rites and she sat up and started kicking, and her hands started grabbing at all the things. That was our first sign that she was there.”

“I’ve faced my worst fear now. What else can I mess up or do wrong that will be as horrible as that? Nothing. There’s nothing. God gave me the blessing of giving me my daughter back. I lost her and I got her back…so I don’t get to make any excuses. I’ve been given the best the biggest blessing you can be given. I’m not allowed to waste a day on this earth complaining or being ungrateful.”

Here’s what Jamie Lynn has been doing while in quarantine.
