My Brother Has Forgotten How To Breathe, Help Him RE-LEARN Everything

If you knew my brother, Akbar Ali - you would agree that he is a kind, friendly and decent boy). He is a responsible son and a very loving brother.He would always return home early, no matter what. But only that day he didn’t. He was hit by a drunken driver on 23rd Jan 2018 while returning home. He was bleeding from everywhere and had to undergo 5 emergency brain operations with multiple complications along with nose, neck and stomach procedures. He was battling for his life at Apollo Hospitals in Neuro ICU all this while.

His brain injury was so bad, that he has forgotten everything! He needs to re-learn how to breathe through his nose and swallow from his mouth. Even after 5 months, he is breathing through his trachea pipe and being fed from his stomach pipe.

We have paid more than Rs. 50 lacs so far including Milaap’s contribution since Jan 2018 for Akbar Ali’s treatment. Many thanks to Milaap for being of great help. 

Now Akbar Ali needs another 4 months of Neuro rehabilitation program along with medical treatment of severe muscle spasms across the body, neck and stomach surgical procedures and seizure control. 

We have 200+ pages of paid bills for hospital charges, medicines and emergency consultations. Few bills are uploaded below. 

The funds raised will be used towards his continued:
  • Hospital Expenses
  • Neuro Rehabiliation Program
  • Doctor Consultations
  • Medicines
  • Critical Nursing Care
  • ICU / Rehab Equipment Rentals
Help me save my only brother. He deserves a better (second) life. Kindly  share the fundraiser with your family and friends and help me reach the goal amount. I cannot thank enough!



Please find original bills and relevant documents for your perusal.

 


Following is a 2 week Neuro Rehab package excluding pharmacy, consumables, investigations, doctor consultations, procedures and surgeries. Bi-weekly we need to keep renewing it. 






Akbar Ali needs 24/7 critical medical care even today! 


3 Lacs paid for 24/7 private nursing services at LHHS and Pranaya


Bills exceeded the financial estimation at Apollo hospitals as emergency consultations, post discharge procedures, new medicines and private critical nursing services were not accounted. Even after 5 months post accident, my brother’s treatment costs lacs of rupees every week at Sakra World Hospital, HDU (High Dependency Unit)



"Akbar Ali needs critical care and constant supervision round the clock, else he will not survive."

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for the wonderful support you have shown towards Akbar's health.

Currently, we are staying at a hotel nearby the hospital so that we are in the close vicinity of the hospital. He has responded well to the treatment and we are glad to see the speed at which he has recovered from last few days.

However, his left side of the body - left eye and left, is still paralysed. Also, in the last two weeks he faced seizures for which doctors have prescribed high-dosage medication.

He will have to undergo the rehabilitation procedure for the coming weeks. Doctors are of the opinion that there are good chances of recovery as his health has improvised from last couple of days.

Please pray for his health and speedy recovery. Thank you once again.
Regards,
Arjuman Amjad

Dear Supporters,

I am glad to inform you that Akbar Ali sounds normal when he talks and expresses himself. His stomach pipe has also been removed. Every week he reaches a new milestone which keeps us going!



However whenever he wakes up, he appears to be confused for sometime and cries due to left arm pain. Over the last week, he had one more episode of seizure and took 2 full days to recover. His left side continues to be very weak, including his eye and today we learnt that he has extra bone growth on his left elbow. This has happened due to formation of calcium as he has not been able to move his arm over the last 23 weeks.



To continue my brother's life threatening seizure treatment and strengthen brain signals to the weaker side of his body, Dr. Maheswarappa (HOD, Physical Medicine and Neuro Rehabilitation at Sakra World Hospital) says he needs to stay for another 3-4 months for maximum recovery (Letter attached in the end)



Along with your prayers and support, we will do whatever it takes to make Akbar Ali as normal as possible with Almighty's grace. He is also putting all his efforts and doing his best to get back! - to home, to work, to inspire and to a brand new life that awaits him outside hospitals.



If you know anyone who is looking for a flat in Bangalore, kindly message me on whatsapp at 91 - 8050805060 as we are looking at selling our home for Akbar Ali's continued treatment. The expenses seem never ending. Attached is the HOD's advice and estimated cost at Sakra World Hospital.



We wish to be back home before 2018 ends......
