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 Rs. 42 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. 

6 weeks done. Another 16 weeks to go!


Monthly Neuro Rehabilitation Program, Rentals, Basic Nursing Estimation is RS. 5,49,000. Excludes surgeries, patient’s diet, multi disciplinary doctor consultations, new medicines and emergency consultations.





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,

Hope you are doing well.

Due to all your prayers and support, we had the best of our lives over the last 7 weeks with Akbar Ali at home. He has been recovering well. We have mostly been discussing about how your contributions have been of immense help during our time of emergency. Similarly there are so many people out there who are in the same position and how can we participate once we clear our present loans.



On 17th Oct, 2018, it was another exciting day with Akbar Ali being around. We had planned an outing the same evening to break the monotony of him being at home 24/7.  At 6pm hell broke, Akbar Ali had the longest seizure post accident (lasted for an hour). We rushed him to Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital, Bangalore. First aid and emergency treatment for the next 3 hours helped him to slowly become semi-conscious. Doctor advised to immediately shift him to ICU. However, I requested multiple times to admit Akbar Ali in the ward as I wanted to be with him as I have witnessed several seizure episodes.

I

I was asked to sign a letter that I take complete responsibility of this decision (admitting in ward) against doctor's advice (ICU) and the hospital will not be responsible for patient's medical condition. It made me think if any hospital takes responsibility anyway if they are admitted in ICU or CCU?

Then another seizure took place at 4am in the ward, but the nursing staff and duty doctor took care of it well. We stayed there for 3 days and got him discharged.

Now his anti-seizure medication have more than doubled. He is mostly drowsy, a little disoriented, takes 3-4 hours for eating one meal, loses balance frequently, does not participate much in talks like before. Heavy drug dosage is freezing his brain activity to control seizures. But I know he will be back soon.

Your constant support, wishes and prayers are appreciated for the rest of our lives. We pledge to help people in need whenever we can - for the rest of our lives. A BIG Thank You for making us realise the importance of giving back!!

Will be back soon with more updates. Wishing you the best of health and love.

PS - I have read your replies on email and will sit down to reply in a bit. Apologies for the delay.

Arjuman

Dear Supporters,

I am rejoiced with the love and support given to my brother Akbar.

I would like to inform you that Ali is better than before and is continuing his treatment in neurology, rehab, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and Ayurveda. His left hand is still paralyzed. His leg is being given special priority since the response is well. As per the doctors, it will take another 3-4 months for him to have a full recovery.

I am very hopeful of his complete recovery. A heartfelt thank you to all of you for such immense support and love. Will keep you posted.
