It's probably time to tell the story about Chaim's birth. It's been 4 months, and I'm still a little in awe of how God blessed him. Since my uterus ruptured, his little body was fighting to survive in my body. As he was delivered via emergency c-section, he wasn't breathing, and his heart rate was falling. Once they were able to get his breathing up and his color back to pink, they placed a 'cooling cap' on his head, and ushered him to the NICU. For 3 days, he had the cooling cap treatment, which is a cap placed on his head that is hooked up to a refrigeration unit. They keep the head extremely cold so that the brain does not begin to swell. Basically, the brain tries to over-correct itself when a baby is born without oxygen, and begins to place water on the brain. This in turn causes brain damage. The cooling cap makes sure that the brain stays in a stable condition and does not swell, thus minimizing and even eliminating the brain damage. We prayed a lot during this time that his brain would be able to respond to this treatment.
