Help this new father get a life-saving brain surgery

"I got a call from my husband's office and they said he was admitted in hospital for an emergency. I was shocked. He had blood clots in the brain and his right side was fully paralyzed; doctors told us that his skull has to be removed. It has been 6  months now since he collapsed suddenly. We have a 4-month-old baby, but Sathish is also just like a child now, learning how to say words like 'Amma' 'Appa'. all over again  I'm waiting every passing minute for him to speak and walk on his own " - Saraswathi, wife of Sathish.

36-year-old Sathish has always been a calm and kind person. He was a great source of strength to his family and friends. He has always stayed positive.  It is hard to believe that his anxiety and stress skyrocketed and caused terrible damage to his brain.



10th January 2018 was just another day at the office for Sathish, his wife Saraswathi who was pregnant then was waiting for him to come back home not knowing that their lives would never be the same forever. Sathish suddenly fainted in his workplace and lost consciousness. His friends rushed him to the hospital and on his way he even got seizures.



"He was very critical and the local hospitals nearby asked him to take to another hospital. We were already 1 hour late when he was finally admitted to the hospital. Just by looking at him I know he is very serious, but I hoped he will be normal soon. Within few days I realized normalcy is a distant dream yet I did not give up. Even slightest movement of him like raising his hands slowly, gives me hope. I will not let him down at any point of time even if that means sacrificing my life." - Saraswathi.

Sathish had 3 major surgeries and a part of his skull was removed, but he needs one more to recover

When Sathish was admitted to the hospital an immediate decompressive craniectomy was done, it is a surgical procedure in which part of the skull is removed to allow a swelling brain room to expand without being squeezed. Usually, bone flaps are replaced after 3 months of the surgery. But very soon he had fluid accumulation so the bone flaps were replaced on the same month. A third surgery was done to remove the skull again because of infection.



"Within a blink of an eye, he had 3 major surgeries. I was 7 months pregnant then and I had to deliver my baby prematurely. My baby was in NICU was 2 months, I do not know how I survived these days but I know deep in my heart I have to be strong for my husband and my son. My mother was taking care of my newborn while I was next to him, talking endlessly about our baby and our dreams with a hope that he will come back to me soon." -  Saraswathi.

Sathish's condition is improving every day, he has a high possibility of having a normal life with an urgent surgery

Sathish has been in the hospital for 6 months although the damage was extremely severe, he had shown slow but tremendous improvement. He is now able to walk with a support, he has slight movements in hands. He is now able to say few words. He has a 90% chance of recovery if the surgery is done.



"Ours was a love marriage so we did not have support from our families but after knowing his condition our parents came to see us. His colleagues and friends have helped us a lot. Yet there isn't even one day that I had sufficient funds. I was struggling to even buy medicines for my husband. Physiotherapy was expensive but seeing my situation therapist agreed to give therapy at a low cost but we have a long way to go." - Saraswathi.
