A Deadly Bone Infection Will Cripple And Kill This 1-year-old Baby

1-year-old Boushik is suffering from a bone infection that is spreading throughout his body, without an immediate knee surgery his condition will become more critical and he may never be able to walk.

“We are trying to do everything that is possible in our hands. My husband knocks every door looking for support, but he returns hopeless at night. All I am left with is prayers. Please help my son from this infection,” - Madhavi, Boushik’s mother.

Within 5 months after the surgery, Boushik was diagnosed with the same infection again

1-year-old Boushik suffered bone infection after 8 months of his birth. His parents have saved him from the near death with all their might and strength. They were happy to see their son in good health and play normally like other children. Unfortunately, the hapless fate returned with a cruel blow to this family. He was diagnosed with the same infection again after 5 months of his first surgery.

“Our son used to make tiny attempts to stand and walk after he was cured, my husband and I were overjoyed. But we noticed that his right leg was swollen and we thought it must have been caused by an insect bite. But during the regular checkup at the hospital, our worst nightmares came true. He was again suffering from the same infection. The thought of his tiny body going through the horrible pain again is unbearable,” said Madhavi with teary eyes.

Only an immediate surgery can save this 1-year-old from a dangerous infection that is spreading through his blood

Boushik was diagnosed with Osteomyelitis, a bone infection which can spread all over the body through blood. This 1-year-old has the infection in his right knee and needs to undergo a knee surgery immediately. The delay in the treatment has already started to affect Boushik’s life. The dangerous infection has started to spread everywhere. He may not be able to walk at all.

My son inconsolably cries because of pain throughout the night and hardly sleeps during the day. Due to frequent vomiting, he stopped eating. At times, he is too weak to make a sound so he silently shed tears. It is painful to see him going through so much of pain. He can't even express it. I am beginning to see how my baby is being consumed by this deadly infection,” - Madhavi.

The family is left penniless and are unable to afford a meal 

Madhavi and Rajeshwar are farmers in Krishnajiwadi Village who earn Rs 4000 a month each. They have exhausted all the money to save their son. They have nearly spent Rs 3 lakh for their son’s first surgery and now they are struggling to even have a meal a day.
