Once JF's heart began beating again he was taken to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Children's Hospital of Illinois at OSF St. Francis in Peoria. There they began what is known as hypothermia treatment or cooling treatment. This treatment has only been done for 2-3 years in this area of the country and there are not a lot of cooling babies in my area.
I am wanting to speak with other parents of cooling babies. Does anyone know of another cooling baby out there? If you do, or you are a parent of a baby who was cooled and you're willing to swap stories, would you please leave a comment or email me at bonnie fandel at g mail dot com?
