“I don’t want to think of Looe Key as my worst nightmare or that hospital, so I want to go back there and I feel like everything will get better,” Jameson said.

“Other than that, I won’t have any more nightmares,” he told CBS at the hospital.

Jameson was snorkeling with his family at the time of the incident, state wildlife police confirmed.

His family believes an eight-foot bull shark bit Jameson in the leg on Saturday, causing the boy to scream for help as he clutched a pool noodle.

The boy’s father, Jameson Sr., drove his boat to rescue his son.

“We weren’t supposed to have our son,” the boy’s father told ABC News.

“He shouldn’t be alive and the fact that he is is just a reminder of how short life is and how fragile life is.”

After the family managed to pull their injured son out of the water, they were shocked at his brave stance after the violence.

“He looks me in the eye as I hold him up in front of me and he said, ‘Daddy Jesus saved me,'” Jameson’s father said.

Jameson was flown to a Miami-Dade hospital where his leg was amputated just below his knee.

“I’ve never seen such an intense and severe shark bite in my short 10, 11 years,” said Lieutenant David Millan of the Monroe County Fire Rescue.

Throughout it all, Jameson kept his composure while first responders struggled to steady him.

“He was talking normally, he wasn’t screaming, he wasn’t crying, he was calm,” Millan said.

“I’ve seen patients with fewer (serious) injuries were more dramatic.”

Jameson told Good Morning America that he was “sad” his foot had been removed but admitted he was happy to be alive.

He underwent four surgeries but said his stuffed hedgehog helped him get through the surgeries.

The boy got the toy from his grandma, who said that squeezing it helps relieve the pain.
