Help my ailing father.

My dad had a cardiac arrest two months ago, when he was visiting my brother in South Africa. He was rushed to the hospital and had to be revived via CPR. When he woke up, his condition started detoriating and he was also diagnosed with fatal pneumonia and his heart was not beating right. He stayed at netcare sunny hill hospital in Johannesburg for almost two months, till all the insurance money and our savings were wiped out. We ended up paying over 1000000 dollars in medical bills and getting a medical plane to bring him back to India to see if we would be able to find a more economical setting around here and also all that time he was there, his only wish was to come back to his country. We brought him back and he was admitted to Apollo gleaneagles in Kolkata, but unfortunately all our money had run out by then. So, we brought him home and decided to set up ICU like care at home for him as a more sustainable and economical alternative. So far, He has been responding well to the treatment but it’s a long road towards recovery. We have sold our house to cover for the cost till now. But it appears that we won’t be able to stretch this set up any further because of financial inability to do so. My father is fighting for his life, he is responding well to the treatment and physiotherapy but the doctors say it might take another 3-6 months for the rehabilitation process and him to get better. Although he can’t speak because of he has had a trachaestomy done, where they do a surgery to insert oxygen pipe directly in vocal chord, but he tries to write things to be able to communicate. Despite being drowned in hard antibiotic, my old man is trying to fight it with all his might. I request people to help us in whatever little or big way, you all can. Every penny helps. Please help me provide my dad a chance at getting back to life again. I’m currently pregnant and have been undergoing severe stress to try and make it work. It has been a very tough time for us as a family, we sold our house in Kolkata and exhausted all our savings, and that’s still not enough. My heart breaks for him. Please do consider helping
