10th August 2016
Dear Supporters,

I am Sudhakar, a Milaap Open fellow in Bangalore. The baby was discharged on 24th May. He has recovered well. He is now hale and hearty. The doctor has asked his parents, Shilpa and Venkatesh, to bring him to the hospital every month for routine checkups. 

The excess funds were transferred to Suhail, who was also admitted to Manipal Hospital during the same time. He was diagnosed with Congenital Thoracolumbar Kyphoscoliosis and was advised Posterior Spinal Closing Opening wedge Osteotomy surgery for the same. The surgery was also successful and he was discharged in June. Here is the link to his campaign page : https://milaap.org/campaigns/suhail

The following appeal has been written on behalf of the baby's father, Venkatesh.

Why Am I Fundraising?

My name is Venkatesh. I hail from Doddakirugombi village, Chikkaballapura. My wife, Shilpa, gave birth to baby boy 6 days ago. He had respiratory problems after birth and was given oxygen support, but as there was no improvement. He was referred to Manipal Hospital, Bangalore for further treatment. 

 
He has been diagnosed with multiple medical conditions (Term Appropriate for gestational age, Hypoxic Respiratory Failure, Persistent Septal Hypertrophy of heart, Hypotension and Probable sepsis) and is on medical management. 

I am a daily wager worker and and earn only Rs. 9000/- per month. My wife had three abortions before having him. She is admitted at Sriranghadi hospital where she underwent a Cesarian. My baby may require at least 2 weeks of admission for his recovery and according to the doctors, has a high chance of survival.
