Sunny was diagnosed with COVID-19, he was in ICU for more than 15 days at Medicover Hospital and unfortunately lost his life on 10-May-2021 after a prolonged battle. In these unprecedented times, we need to help Sunny Jaiswal’s family to overcome grief in whatever way possible.
While nobody can ever fulfill the void in their lives, as friends, the least we can do is to come together and contribute to safeguarding the family’s future and honor Sunny’s memory and legacy.
We would like to share with you some facts that are helping us cope up with the monumental loss to some extent and we hope that they bring some sort of closure or peace to you too.
He got infected somewhere around the beginning of April. He fought the infection to the best of his abilities, using every ounce of strength, willpower, and determination that he had in him. But unfortunately, it got worse, and he got admitted into the hospital.
Then began the arduous 20-day battle with the virus. His family, friends, colleagues, and the medical team did everything they could. Be it medicines, care, prayers, healing, we left no stone unturned.
And we were successful to control the progression of Covid and treat his secondary bacterial infection. He was about to be discharged.
But sadly, destiny had different plans. He caught another secondary infection again and unfortunately this time all our efforts couldn't save him.
The damage was extensive. Even if he would have stabilized, he would have needed a lung transplant within a month and even after the surgery, his life expectancy would have been 1-5 years (as told by medical experts). Additionally, he would have required dialysis as his kidneys were starting to get affected.
His body was weak, there was no guarantee that it would have been able to accept the transplanted lungs. He would have needed injections to suppress his immune system so that the newly transplanted lungs weren't attacked by his own blood cells. This would have put him at an enhanced risk of more infections and diseases.
All of this would have robbed him of the joy of travel, his favourite food, work, and other things that he absolutely loved and couldn't live without.
Still, if his body vitals were stable enough, we would have gone ahead with the procedure knowing the associated risks. But that day nothing worked in our favour. No medicine or prayer could save him, and we watched him slowly slip away in a sedated state.
Doctors believe that he probably had a painless crossover coz the amount of sedation he was on was very high. It probably would have felt like drifting into a deep sleep. He was with his wife and brother by his side when he left for his home up above.
The loss is huge, and we are aware that words and stats are just not enough to get closure. Let us all remember the fond memories with a smile. That would be the best tribute.
