During the second week of May, my whole family was affected with COVID -19. By God’s grace, my father and my children were not adversely impacted. However my wife, mother and myself were all admitted for breathing issues during the month in different hospitals at a time when COVID was at its peak in the city. My wife was admitted on the 14th May 2021 and then subsequently I was admitted on the 18th May as my lung infection increased. Post my discharge, my mother was also admitted due to critical lung infection. Unfortunately, my mother passed away due to multiple complications on the 3rd June 2021. Currently, my wife (Divya Katherine) is still in ICU - on intubated vent support. Though the COVID infection has left her body, the effect that it has left behind is devastating. The doctors are trying to wean my wife away from ventilator support. However, it might take time for the lungs to recover and resume back to normal. Until such time, she will require the care that she gets from the ICU.
At this juncture, I am requesting all those who can help support me financially as the hospital bills (25 lakhs as on date) are going over and beyond the insurance claims. I tried considering the option of moving her to a government hospital – However, her condition does not permit the move as even the slightest movement will put her life at risk. Hence, she will need to have continued treatment at her current hospital until she recovers slightly and is capable of movement.
Request your generosity. Even a small amount is fine as it will help towards easing my financial burden. Every small droplet makes a mighty ocean.
God Bless you.
