“My 2-year-old baby, Pari is in coma for the past 3 months. It’s painful to see our baby lying in the hospital bed, motionless. She opens her eyes once in a while, tries to move her hands but within few minutes she lose her conciosuness. I don’t know if she will ever come back to life." Somnath, Pari's father.
Pari is in coma for months and her parents are desperately waiting every moment for her to open her eyesPari, the only child of Somnath and Poonam was happy and healthy until a few months back. She had a high fever and suddenly her eyes rolled upwards. Within a few minutes, she had violent seizure attacks and went into a coma. She has been in coma ever since.
“Pari had just learnt to speak. Poonam and I were so happy to hear ‘papa’ and ‘mamma’ for the first time. We are dying to hear her speak now. Our happiness were crushed in a split second. For the past 3 months, my baby has been in the ICU. We look at her with hope when she occasionally gets to her senses but within minutes, our hopes shatter."
Violent seizures and brain infections can turn fatal any moment without urgent treatmentLittle Pari has brain infections and encephalitis which causes severe seizures. If she gets any more seizure attacks while she's in a coma, it might affect her brain and body beyond help and may turn fatal also.
“ Her condition is worsening day by day. Her brain is getting severely affected and if she doesn’t get the medicines and injections, she can succumb to seizures and brain infections at any moment. Medicines are the only way that will keep her condition under control but I can't afford it. I can't bear to lose my baby at any cost."
With no income, it is very difficult for Somnath to save his daughterPoonam has not been able to sleep for all these months. She refuses to move away from the baby even for a minute and Somanth has not been able to go to work because he has been running back and forth to everyone he knew asking for help to save his baby girl.
“Her medicines and injections cost about Rs 35,000. I have to spend this huge amount every 10 days. I worked as a contractual house painter. My income was never stable. I managed to run our household with whatever I could make on productive days. I do a little of sand mining on the days I don’t get work. With Pari’s deteriorating condition every day, I haven’t been able to look for any work.”
Without help, Somnath has to forcefully discharge his baby girlSomanath had to forcefully discharge her baby from the previous hospital. He was not able to bear the expenses any further. Out of a bill of Rs 13 lakh, he had managed to pay only Rs 3 lakhs. He has already borrowed Rs 4 lakh to get Pari treated. He’s not been getting much help. He has to pay Rs 50,000 for just 5 days and has no money left to save his daughter. If he doesn’t get help, he’ll have to discharge his baby again and that can even kill her.
