Help My Son Survive Preterm Delivery Complications

My son was born with extremely low birth weight (birth weight – 0.655 kg) in RSV Hospital, Kolkata. We have been struggling for the last 2 months (since 30th June 2019) to save our baby.
Baby was initially diagnosed with extremely low birth weight complications. Right after he was born, he was admitted to neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) as he needed intermittent positive-pressure ventilation (IPPV) with continuous oxygen support. He was kept on a ventilator followed by nCPAP. He was further diagnosed with Klebsiella pneumonia infection. After a few days, the baby developed recurrent apnea with desaturation and was kept on ventilation, after which the baby started having breathing difficulty. The baby was given packed cell transfusion due to anemia and phototherapy due to jaundice.
We have tried our best to save him. I am a humble contract employee in the private sector, earning less than Rs.20,000 per month (without any medical coverage for my family) and further treatment of any sort is beyond my capabilities at this point. He was in ventilation for a week and was then moved to NICU. Currently, he has been transferred to the Special Care Baby Unit and further stay 2-3 weeks is expected.

So far, the bill more than Rs. 3,30,000/- for his stay at RSV (excluding the delivery charges of my wife, which was Rs. 71,759), including Investigations and Medications. The further projected expenses are around 1,25 lacs. We have exhausted all other means of finances and finally decided to go for crowdfunding.

Requesting all my friends and well-wishers to support us and please contribute to this fundraiser whatever amount you can (irrespective of how small it is) to help us in keeping our son alive.

It is since 30th- Jun'19, when visiting hospital daily has become our routine.I like to inform you that, my baby still is in hospital under Special Care baby unit.
Lots of the early birth complication has now reduced and he is still gaining weight gradually.
We thought that, may be now we can take our baby back home, but his weight has reduced due to start of breast feeding since yesterday.
Doctors are ensuring that it is normal but advised to do ECHO on 7th - Sep.
We are still worried about the outcome of the report as earlier reports shown some complication in heart arteries.
We still require your constant support and good wishes which is the only source of our strength in our most difficult time.

        Imagine the condition of the parent who’s still anxiously waiting to hold his baby in their lap even after 56 days of his birth. With 56 days of suffering, the little one is seeking help for every breath of his life . It’s a body shivering imagination, that no one want to experience even in their most wildest dream. Yes, we are the one who is baring this pain and still hoping that one day our little one come jumping in our lap like all others.His condition is not improving , still undergoing treatment in Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU). Recent eye checkup diagnosed ROP (Retinopathy of Prematurity) Stage – II , which need immediate Eye Laser treatment for both of his eyes. Oxygen saturation in blood decreasing with every drop of milk which he is nibbling. Normal mouth feeding yet not started , still NG tube is being used for every feed.

        But with the help of blessing and good wished that you are all pouring he is growing slowly. But he still require a constant hospitalization of at least another 2 weeks of time period. Considering the present forecast we require another 2 lakhs rupees to get him well treated and bring back home.
   
        Here, I again requesting all good hearts to please support us as much as you can in our most difficult time.
