1-year-old Vyga with a swollen stomach urgently needs help

When Vyga was just two months old she developed a severe cold and cough which quickly escalated to difficulty in breathing. Upon diagnosis, it was found that 1-year-old Vyga is suffering from Pancreatitis.

What is Pancreatitis?
Pancreatitis is the swelling of the stomach that causes internal bleeding, vomiting, fever and can lead to the infection spreading to other parts of the body as well.

For the last two months, Vyga has been in the hospital in a critical condition. Over and above the swollen stomach, Vyga has persistent fluid collecting in her chest and stomach which is making it difficult for her to eat. She has been on tube feeding for the last two months and has lost a serious amount of weight.

Due to her age, action needs to be taken at the quickest and she needs to undergo pancreatic surgery to survive. However, due to the rapid drop in weight, Vyga can only undergo surgery after she gains a certain amount of weight in order to avoid risk.
 She struggles to breathe and everyday fluid has to be drained from her chest. 

Baby Vyga’s stomach is swollen heavily. A large amount of fluid is accumulated in her chest and abdomen. This interferes her breathing and the fluid has to be repeatedly removed through tubes. She initially showed signs of improvement but very soon she continued to develop repeated episodes of fluid accumulation and was hospitalized repeatedly. For the past eight months, her mother has been running to hospital and home back and forth.

She needs nutritional treatment as well as a surgery which all amounts to around 10 lakhs.

Her mother and her old grandparents are Vyga's only family. Her father abandoned her mother while she was still in her mother's womb. Vyga's grandparents who own a small tea shop do not have the funds to pay for her surgery. Vyga's mother just became a nurse but still does not have the funds to save her daughter.

“I’m so unfortunate to see my daughter and granddaughter fighting for their life. I don’t know what I can do at this age but I’m willing to do anything to save her. She is our world”
 Vyga's helpless grandparents are willing to do whatever it takes to  save her

This family is helpless and willing to do whatever it takes to save their baby girl. Your contribution can save Vyga's life.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for supporting and donating for her treatement. We have done two surgeries for Vyga this admission - one major surgery and  the other multiple drainages of the abdominal collections and she is stable now.

The final surgery is planned at a later date. We had budget of  Rs 10 lakh for her treatment and we have received Rs  5 lakh which has been used for her current treatment and nutritional rehabilitation. At present she is stable and we plan to continue her rehabilitation and follow up in the OPD. Meanwhile if she develops further complication the surgery will have to be planned at that time. Thank you once again for the generous donation for Baby Vyga.

Dear Supporters,

Here is an update on baby Vyga.
Over the past 10 days, the baby Vyga has had a few ups and downs
She developed a high-grade fever and became a bit sick.
The tube in her stomach which was draining the fluid got blocked and she was in pain till it was replaced. Thankfully she did not develop a serious infection! It took her 2 to 3 days to settle down after which she has been fairly stable.

 Her nutritional rehabilitation is going well and she gained weight almost to 6 kg but then the fever brought it down a bit. Still, she is progressing well now. The fluid from her stomach seems to be reducing and if she does not develop any other setback we should be able to plan her definitive surgery in a week or two.

It has been nearly 3 months since Baby Vyga was admitted to the hospital and it has become her second home.
In spite of all her needle pricks, tubes down her throat, tubes in her veins, tubes in her abdomen, she continues to remain cheerful and positive.
She now plays with the nurses who care for her and has started talking a few words too!

 However, it is our fervent endeavor to make sure she goes home well - to grow up like any other baby girl. All your prayers and generous contribution have made all this possible else she would not have made it this far.

We and Vyga's family thank you all for all the help you have given and for standing by her. We are sure your prayers and blessings will be with us when we embark on her surgery. Together we hope to make her well and healthy. Thank you, one and all.

Baby Vyga is feeling better now. We have been able to establish feeding and better nutrition with which her protein levels are improving. This will help her to heal better. She has been showing slow weight gain and is now 5.2 kg. We hope she will continue to improve and reach her target weight of 8 kg.

She still has a tube in her stomach to drain the excess fluid accumulating which will remain for another 1 to 2 weeks. Her surgery will have to be planned after that. In spite of all these troubles Vyga remains cheerful and determined to come out of this ordeal successfully. She still has a long way to go but with all your help and prayers I am sure she will make it fine.

Thank you all for your selfless and generous contribution towards treatment of Baby Vyga for which her grandparents, mother,myself and of course, Baby Vyga will be forever grateful. You made it possible for this little fighter to even the odds stacked against her.
