Default Message from Feisty's brother

I am Jaymie's brother Mike. I apologize for the late response. I read her blog on Cocky-talk for the first time today. I wanted that to be a place for her to vent away from her family. Jaymie's last blog entry to you all was January 15th. She had not been eating and her nurse at Moffitt suggested she be hospitalized. After tests the doctors determined that she had Thrush, a virus in her throat that made it difficult to swallow. She was given medications for that and was feeling better briefly but her tests came back showing cancer in the fluid around her brain. After a few days of thinking over her options, she decided she wanted to go home and just take medicine for the pain. Because she needed full time care, she was approved for Hospice, and on January 20th, she was transferred to a Hospice facility in Bradenton. My wife Karen and Karen's mom were with Jaymie alternatively during each day. I stayed with her in the evenings and overnight. As her condition advanced, she received wonderful 24 hour care from Tidewell Hospice. Our mother was given a ride down from South Carolina to be with Jaymie. Jaymie's aunt from Oregon was able to come out and be with her for a week as well. Jaymie slept almost all the time in the last few days, and passed away in the early hours of the morning on February 10th. I was sleeping on a couch next to her bed every night. Until the last few days, she battled with the nurses to get out of bed, even though her legs couldn't support her if she made it. She maintained that feisty spirit until the end.

I am in the process of sending letters to all of those who cared for her during her fight. I wanted to send a special THANK YOU to her friends on Cocky-talk. There were many days, especially when news was bad, that her messages to you and your responses kept her strength up, when there was nothing left to feel strong for. You were also there with her, as was I, for some glorious moments. I watched every game of the college world series with Jaymie. We also watched several football games together, even thought I got kicked out of the room on a few occasions because I wasn't supposed to talk during her game. :) Jaymie was strong enough to be a bridesmaid at my wedding in September. One of the last times Jaymie was able to get out, we went to Orlando to watch South Carolina in the bowl game. We had great seats on about the 5 yard line in the handicapped section right behind the players. I wish we could have held up a sign, as I understand several of her South Carolina friends were looking for her during the game.

I will be driving back to South Carolina to take my mother back home on Friday, and will be bringing Jaymie's remains with me.

Does anyone have a connection in the Football or Baseball program, such that I may have access to the football field or baseball field briefly on Saturday or Sunday to spread Jaymie's ashes so Jaymie can always be there to fight for the Gamecocks. If anyone can help with this (please pm khosk and I will contact the family).

By the way, Jaymie required me to root for the Gamecocks in her will. Its an honor I will take seriously.


Thank you again for your love and support of my little sister.


Mike

It was the other way around.

Your little sister supported us.

It's rare that I cry for someone I didn't know personally, but tonight is one of those times.

My surprise kind of fizzled when Roth and the guys couldn't find y'all but her story was still spread to the team. Roth wished so bad he could have found her but they spoke on twitter and she touched him anyway. She had a way of speaking to people's souls with little interaction. She was just so dang awesome! I'm so fortunate to have known her, even though it was through text and phone calls. I still have a lot of her bracelets and I'm going to be giving to the team this weekend so keep your eyes out for the "Fight for Fiesty" garnet bracelets. I know she's going to be helping the team from up above. She joked of having some sort of sway on Clemson from heaven, so if you see guys falling all over the place and making errors everywhere, you can smile knowing that it's Jaymie having her fun! I know a bunch of the players and I will see if I can set something up for your and her wishes. It may take me some time though. I will pm my number so you can contact me and I can try to get it set up. It'd be great to have her ashes split up onto both but I don't know if that will go according to your or her wishes. We'll figure it out. But I do need more than a few days. If anyone can organize it quicker, then please do. Her will statement is probably the funniest thing I've ever heard and I believe it 100% because she was die hard! That statement really made my day. Leave it to Jaymie to work that in there. Lol. I love her and miss her, but it's not goodbye. It's just a shirt time until we see her again and she'll be in top form! I joked with her that the only place she could go was heaven, because the devil couldn't deal with having to fight her! Such a brave spirit and a great person. Forever to thee, Jaymie!

It's nice to now know more of the full story


Jaymie was such a special person and we all miss her greatly





also, I'm not going to lie, even though I feel sorrow after reading this, the part about kicking you out because you're not supposed to talk during games made me laugh..


such an amazing women and an inspiration to all who knew her

Absolutely wonderful story about her last days....I know how very excited Feisty was that Roth talked with her on twitter...she told me so....i think if someone was to contact Michael Roth...he and the baseball staff could help with the time of spreading her ashes over the fields....Michael is that kind of guy....

Thank you for sharing your story of her...

I remember that in the past there have been a couple of other people wanting this done with their remains and that was rebuffed by USC. I hope that it can be worked out this time. Perhaps groundskeeping can mix Jaymie's ashes in with the fertilizer and she can be reborn in blades of garnet grass. Every time I would see an opposing player trip or stumble I would know it was Jaymie, our 12th player! In the event that cannot be done I have known people to have their ashes scattered on the heart and soul of USC, the Horseshoe. That being a public area it is much easier to do and is one of the most beautiful areas on any campus, beautiful just like Jaymie's spirit.

If the admin's won't formally allow it, I'm sure someone within the program will 'informally' make her wishes come true.

She was always a Feisty Fighting Gamecock, well before her illness struck. Her spirit will not be forgotten here at CockyTalk, and we wish all of her family members strength and peace.
