It's been a long struggle for our family as my mother Jaishree Vitthal Khune, 53yrs is admitted in ICU since 70 days (43 days in Ruby hospital , Pune and around 27 days in Tirupati hospital, latur) and is on ventilatory support since last 60 days.
I am an UPSC aspirant and have exhausted all my funds for getting treatment and have already taken loan for the same. Even the salary of my brother who is serving as a Covid doctor in Kolkata, West Bengal has been stopped as he had to come home to take care of our family.
Before getting covid positive my father had suffered heart attack ( AWMI) and was hospitalized for same and got his angioplasty done. It was also a costly procedure. Adding to our pain, he got infected with covid from hospital which also infected my mother. And thus since February 23rd, 2021, our family is battling daily against all these odds.
My father is a retired army person. My family is in dire need of financial help as the daily hospital bill is around Rs. 40- 50 thousand. My mother though is recovering well from Covid, has acquired secondary hospital acquired infections for three times till now. Currently she is on treatment for post covid fibrosis, ARDS and type 2 respiratory failure & Candidemia ( Candida auris blood infection) for which she is getting daily injections of Inj. Micofungin plus which costs around Rs. 15700 and needs to be continued for 21 days. Other medicines are also high line antibiotics like Inj. Elores, Teicoplanin, Polymyxin B, Zavicefta etc. which are also costly.
She will also require oxygen support for a long time even after discharge so I will have to buy oxygen concentrator and bipap machine.
Hope everything gets normal as soon as possible. Your little help could make a great difference.
Estimated expenses for hospitalisation and post hospitalisation care for chronic case will be around 30-32 lakhs.
Thank you for your support and wishes.
