A miracle moment happens when mom saves napping 22-year-old daughter with CPR after sudden cardiac arrest!
God gives mothers the gift of knowing their children inside and out as well as intuition. We somehow know when our children are in trouble or when they need us most.
Jocelyn feels blessed and knew God was with her the day she realized her daughter Jenylyn Carpio was in serious trouble.
Right Place At The Right Time
Jenylyn thought it would be a great idea to take her two-month-old daughter to visit her grandma. As all new grandmothers, Jocelyn couldn't spend enough time with her precious new grandbaby. During the visit, exhaustion crept in for Jenylyn with all the late-night hours she spent taking care of her sweet baby girl. Knowing her daughter was in the best of hands, she drifted off to sleep.
One moment she was asleep and the next moment, she awoke to her mother performing CPR and informing her she had just experienced sudden cardiac arrest.
“I was 22 years old when I became a new mom. I was a new wife and I was a college student. And next thing I remember, my mom frantically pumping at my chest, yelling at me to wake up and a police officer was shining a light in my eyes and my mom had said that, ‘You just experienced a sudden cardiac arrest.'”
Mom Saves Daughter During Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Jocelyn was trained in CPR. But she never expected to use it on her daughter. She gives God credit for the intuition to do what needed to be done when her daughter stopped breathing and had no pulse.
At the hospital, doctors diagnosed her with an abnormal heart rhythm and had surgery to implant a defibrillator that detects abnormal heartbeats. Once an abnormal rhythm is detected the defibrillator will pace her heartbeat back to a normal rhythm but if it can't, it will then shock her heart to reset it into a normal rhythm.
Now God is using their story to create awareness for heart health in women and knowing CPR. It could just save a person's life. About 90% of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die, but performing CPR more than doubles someone’s chance of survival. Jenylyn thanks God and is grateful to her mother that she didn't become one of the statistics.
“What I would like other people to know in regards to sudden cardiac arrest is it can happen at any time to anybody, and that knowing CPR is a life-saving skill and that's why I’m here today," Jenylyn said.
We thank God not only for mothers but for both Jocelyn and Jenylyn raising awareness how we can save the life of another through CPR and raising awareness for heart health.
