This is baby Hamsika. After 10 long years, she and her twin sister were born to her parents. But they are not lucky to have her at home. She is suffering from a liver disease which is damaging her liver every day. She can be saved if her parents can arrange funds for a liver transplant.
Jaundice is very common among newborns but it turned fatal for Hamsika
The happiness of this couple had no bounds when they got to know they are blessed with twins. Their prayers were answered. One of the twins, Hamsika, was suffering from jaundice but doctors assured them that it's common for a newborn and she will be fine within 21 days. She was on the ventilator for a day just after birth and after 7 days they took the two little angels home.
"Our family was complete, our parents were finally accepting us after seeing the smiling faces of our children. They weren't happy about our decision to get married but everything changed after our children came into our lives.
The first procedure to cure her was unsuccessful
Hamsika’s condition started deteriorating few days after she went home. Her parents took her to a local hospital where they gave her some vitamin supplements. Hamsika’s condition did not improve at all. After moving around different hospitals she was brought to Bangalore where they found out that she is suffering from Biliary Atresia.
They went forward with Kasai procedure as recommended by the doctor. She was fine for a few days but her mother noticed Hamsika was turning yellow again. Within a month she had lost her appetite completely, her stomach was swollen and she had trouble relieving herself. Her parents took her to the hospital immediately where they got to know, Kasai procedure was unsuccessful and now the only way is a liver transplant.
We have waited so long for a child, and now we cannot lose her
