    baby of apsana

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

At 5 am, after Ramatulla reaches the railway station, he waits for the train. Till 6 in the evening, he carries heavy luggage to support his wife and son. At night when he returns home, his body is in pain, he cannot even lift his arm but when he sees his baby, his pain disappears. He takes him in his arms. Few days ago, the couple got the news of their baby’s heart condition. Apsana and Ramatulla did not understand everything very clearly. But one thing etched out in their mind clearly - their baby’s heart is failing and without surgery he would not live long. The young parents who are desperate to save their little one are now terribly worried about the expense of the surgery.

The baby is very weak and gasps for breath even if he is crying

The 2-month-old baby has been diagnosed with a heart disease called the Tetralogy of Fallot. It is mostly a combination of four heart defects that changes the normal flow of blood through the heart. It causes oxygen-poor blood to flow out of the heart and to the rest of the body. Now  an open heart surgery at the earliest is the only option for the baby to survive and lead a normal life.
 
“The doctors had thought that our baby, Abdul, will get better with time and medicine but that is not happening. He is very weak and tired. Even at the night, he wakes up every two hours and cries. Sometimes, I stay awake the entire night to calm him down and put him to sleep but he is uncontrollable. Even the simple act of breathing is tiresome for my little baby,” - Apsana, mother.

Even after working for extra hour, Ramatulla is not earning enough to get his son treated

Every day Ramatulla earns around Rs 400-450. It is needless to say that with such a salary he is in no condition to afford the open heart surgery. The surgery would cost Rs 4 lakhs and Ramatulla has already exhausted his little savings on his son’s treatment and medicines. Without help, these poor parents would not be able to save their 2-month-old baby.
