It is not every day that a baby boy has a superhero for a sister before he can even walk and talk!!
Here is the harrowing story of how a little 3-year-old girl paid more attention to her baby sibling than to playing games and having fun outside with her friends.
SOUTHEAST TEXAS – There is real life mini superhero girl from Silsbee who definitely earned a medal for her heroic act.
This little girl has earned the right to wear a cape, little delicate looking Joze-lynn Kern is a real life superhero.
Just by an off chance, Joze-lynn noticed her 2-week old brother was not breathing. She immediately turned to her parents to find out why.
Joze-lynn.said that she seriously thought he was dying, he wasn’t breathing. That reaction had saved her baby brother Kayson from almost suffocating.
Pam Chance, the grandmother, said that Joze-lynn came in and said that Kayson had stopped breathing; this news almost scared her to death.
The mother, Autumn Kern, also added that Kayson was gasping for air. She continued that if it hadn’t been for her daughter’s and husband's response, Kayson would not have survived.
The parents quickly transported the baby brother to the Baptist hospital in Beaumont.
Doctors admit that if it hadn’t been for the fast response of Joze-lynn and her parent’s this story would have had a tragic ending.
The entire family felt a big sense of relief that Kayson was safe.
“With young infants, there's a thing called reflux, food comes up from their tummy and if it comes up too high, it can cut off their breathing,” says Director of Pediatrics at Baptist, Regan Sciarrilla.
There was from the beginning a special bond between baby brother and big sister. It was that bond that helped Kayson recover his lost breath.
“Not only does he have a big sister, he's got a big hero,” their mother explains.
Joze-lynn’s fast reaction has given her little brother a chance to do all those fun activities boys love to do.
“Dynamite comes in little packages” meaning it is the small things that get us through life. In other words just because some-one is small it doesn’t mean they are incapable of doing great things.
She may not have the ability to turn invisible nor fly, but this little girl is a living superhero. No-one will ever take Joze-lynn for granted.
