Hamil has been bleeding from his nose and mouth. This has alarmed the doctors and they have advised a bone marrow transplant immediately.Initially, Hamil's sister was found to be a half match to be the donor for the transplant but the doctors searched for a full matched donor. Fortunately, they found one and there is now a lesser risk for the transplant.
Hamil's parents have left their daughter in custody of her grandmother and are staying in Chennai in a rented room near the hospital so they can take Hamil to the doctor if there is any emergency.
