Within the hour of Jack's delivery, doctors in the NICU put a Cool Cap on his head. It circulates chilled water through the special cap. Jack wore it for 72 hours. It kept his brain a few degrees lower than normal to prevent further damage and possibly reverse any damage that he suffered.
Jon says, "I would say it is a life giver."
Dr. Mohamed Mohamed took care of Jack when he was a baby. He is amazed by Jack's recovery. Dr. Mohamed says, "I saw Jack two weeks ago at the zoo and he looks perfect." He says, "It's remarkable."
Dr. Mohamed say the Youness family may not know the full extent of the damage that was done at delivery -- until Jack is older -- but right now there is no sign of him slowing down.
Jeana says, "knowing what could have happened -- we'll take it." She adds, "we're blessed, we're happy and we're thankful."
Sanford Health in Fargo has two newborn cool caps. Dr. Mohamed says they are used 8 to 10 times a year.
