Support Lekha Recover from Pulmonary Thromboembolism

My name is Shibendra Nandi and I am on Milaap to raise funds for the prolonged treatment of my wife for life threatening complications arising out of rare blood disorder.
Life changed suddenly for me on 19th Jun 2019 when Lekha fell in the bathroom and was rushed to MGM Hospital Vashi. She was diagnosed with a clot in the brain and then began a series of surgeries and procedures. The first was neurosurgery for cranium decompression due to venous thrombosis in right brain followed by second neurosurgery of VP shunt to drain fluid from brain. Making this worse was haematic complication due to low platelet count (15 K) caused by an auto immune disorder - Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and mastoiditis infections of the ear which are being treated parallelly. The cost of the above hospitalization (3 weeks) was about Rs 15 lacs, covered by medical insurance and employer support.
Post discharge 24x7 nursing care was provided at home, but she started complaining of breathlessness and was re-admitted to MGM Vashi due to lung complications - suspected pulmonary embolism from deep vein thrombosis and reactions from ITP medicines. First line of treatment started but her condition worsened and the doctors at MGM decided to move her to the ICU at Jaslok Hospital, Mumbai, on 20th Aug 2019.
On 21st Aug, doctors led by the leading CVT Surgeon Dr Hemant Pathare carried out a life saving Open Lung Surgery to remove clots. This was followed by two surgeries on the left leg where clots were continuing to form and another to put in a filter to prevent clots from traveling to the lungs. Further, to avoid keeping her on ventilator for prolonged periods of time, a tracheostomy was done on 7th Sep 2019. She continues to be in the ICU at Jaslok Hospital till date.
With the active intervention by doctors, aided by her will to live, age (she is not forty yet) and a very strong desire to return home to care for her son who is at a critical juncture - Class XII, she is showing very slow but positive signs of recovery.
The hospitalisation cost at Jaslok alone has crossed Rs 35 lacs and the ongoing expenses are about Rs 1 lac per day, excluding the cost of surgeries. To meet these expenses, I have liquidated all my savings and jewellery, taken loans from friends and relatives (which I will have to return) and availed employer support. I have exhausted all the possible resources and avenues for arranging money for the ongoing treatment. Now I am really worried how to continue her current treatment which requires at least a minimum of Rs 50 lacs to cover her treatment costs for approximately a month. Future expenses, include two more surgeries of the brain and ear followed by a very long rehabilitation.
This is an appeal to all of you to financially support me in my efforts to raise Rs 50 lacs for the immediate need in order to save her life. Please help in this endeavour!
