Hi Everyone,

Both my father and mother had covid at the same point - symptoms started evolving together from 28th April 2021. My mother already has asthma so her lungs are anyways weak. And with this covid attack, her lungs are now almost full infected - as the doctors say - Bilateral Pneumonia. My father also needed some medical assistance but we could bring him back after the treatment. He was admitted to Apollo Gleneagles Saltlake on 5th May and returned home on 14th May. He is now covid negative.

My mother was from the beginning quite serious, and we first admitted her to a nursing home on 5th May. But it wasn't good so we transferred her to Fortis on 8th May. She was admitted to an HDU ward but her condition was demanding ICCU. Since the same was not available at the point, she was kept and treated in HDU.

In between at times, she used to interact well and respond, but her lungs condition deteriorated day by day. And slowly her liver and blood were also infected. She was sometimes on a face mask, nasal canola, and also on an NRBM mask. But her condition deteriorated drastically on 29th May when she was bound to get shifted to ICCU on ventilation. Doctors are doing the best possible options but nothing seems to work in the positive path.

And meanwhile, all the funds I had been exhausted, insurance claims are exhausted. Doctors suggest pushing her anti-fungal injection which costs 10K per day for a minimum of 14 days.

Till today, the hospital bill is approx 9.5 lacs. And prior to the hospitalization in Fortis, I had spent around 2.5 lacs for my father and the earlier hospital where mom was admitted. In the current state, there is a need for her to get treated more as the doctors are still trying their best. And suggest getting treated for, as mentioned for the antifungal injection, a minimum of 14 days.

I would request all of you to please come forward and help me bring my mom back alive. If we lose her due to lack of funds and stop the treatment, then our family will lose one pillar - as she used to be the strongest one to tighten our family members united. She will be missed by my father, her granddaughter (4yrs old), my wife, and mostly by me.

Please, I request your help and support. Thank you in advance.
