Ritu was diagnosed with Covid-19 on May 13th 2021 and was later admitted to Fortis Hospital -Shalimarbagh (New Delhi) as her oxygen level was dropping. Doctors tried to stabilize her O2 level but due to severe lung infection (over 80%) she was moved to ICU on May 15th 2021.
As her oxygen level kept dropping to dangerous levels she was put on ventilator support with induced paralysis on May 23rd 2021.
On May 25th 2021 Doctors noticed that her kidneys are not performing to full capacity and they started performing dialysis to remove swelling from her body.
Ritu is still on ventilator support and doctors are performing dialysis and CRRT THERAPY every other day but there is still no improvement to her condition. We are still hopeful that treatment will improve her condition but doctors are not sure how long they will have to keep her in ventilator support.
With almost 1 month in ICU and more than 2 weeks in ventilator support medical bills have started to pile up. Our family is trying our best not to let money come in the way of being able to save a loving family member. We have been able to pool resources to begin the treatment immediately and continue it so far, but we need help raising funds urgently to continue and finish the treatment.
We urge you to please find it in your hearts to contribute and help us raise funds for Ritu's urgent medical expenses. Any and every donation would be greatly appreciated, regardless of the amount.
Thank you all so much in advance.
