    from Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu

Hi all, I am Venkatakrishnan from TamilNadu. Days were returning back to normalcy in my family after the sudden demise of my father last year. But a week back, that too was shattered when my mother (Lakshmi aged 63) was diagnosed with a rare kind of disease, Myasthenia Gravis. She was struggling to talk, breathe and swallow at that time. So we had to get her admitted immediately in the K.G. Hospital, Coimbatore, ICU. Initially, the treatment process involved a costly procedure Plasmapheresis, which in simple terms means refurbishment of plasma. With that entire procedure not working out, a higher grade treatment wherein Intravenous Immunoglobulins (IvIg) was infused externally in order to control her symptoms. The next plan of medical action is conduct a major surgery to remove thymus gland. As of 29th May, she has been in ICU for the past 7 days in external ventilator support. Doctors have recommended continuing her stay in ICU for at least a week's time to continue with Ventilator support, and perform Tracheostomy surgery (external breathe support). The current hospital costs are around 8 lakhs till now and with more surgeries to come, it will escalate even more. With so many complications I am still having a hope to live my life with my mother around for her to see all the good things. The difficulty is that, I belong to normal lower middle class family. I have exhausted all my medical insurance and personal savings so far. In this platform, I deeply request folks to help my mother overcome this miserable situation with their contributions and pray for her speedy recovery.  These contributions will help us continue with the medication and surgery. Thanks to everyone for your understanding… With regards, Praveen
