Help this 2-month-old boy who is fighting for his life

My 2-months-old son Surya Teja is the angel of our family. With his arrival, our family was complete. My first son Dharma Teja (5) is a healthy, cheerful boy. When doctors said Surya is completely healthy, my husband (Narendra) and I were happy. What else can a parent ask for? But soon we realized that we were not lucky enough. Our child would soon be fighting for his life.

It all started with a fever. We took him to the hospital and the fever subsided. We thought it is quite normal. But then, he refused to have milk and became too weak. I was terrified when he got seizures. I rushed him to the hospital all alone. They asked me to take to a bigger hospital. By then I realized something was very wrong. Yet, I was desperately hoping that doctors would say he is normal.

In the blink of an eye, my life turned upside down. My son was taken to ICU, what doctors told me was worse than all my nightmares. I was devastated to know that he had blood clots in his brain. He also had severe pneumonia. I collapsed on the floor when I saw my little one struggling to breathe. The thought of losing him was too much to bear.

My son is on ventilator support and he is given a high dosage of medicines and injections every now and then. How much his little body can bear? Why does this baby have to go through so much pain?

They say that my baby has got this condition because Vitamin K has not passed enough to him from me. He was born with very low stores of Vitamin K. I was devastated to hear this. Despite our poverty, I took all the care needed for his health. I followed all the instructions that doctors gave. My husband brought dry fruits which I never ate before. We can't afford such luxuries, but I did everything I could to stay healthy and peaceful. All my efforts and hopes have gone in vain. My son is now fighting for his life.

My elder son does not understand the intensity of his little brother's condition. He misses him terribly, and keeps asking for him. I tell him every day that we will be back home soon. In reality, I'm losing the hope day by day. Doctors say that he needs a prolonged stay in the hospital and I have already unpaid bills. My son's life is at risk, My husband has not left any stone unturned in arranging for money. He leaves early in the morning and meets everyone he knows and begs for money. He sometimes comes back empty handed and breaks down in tears.

He is a farmer who has seasonal work. Who will give us so much money? How will they know that our child is so precious to us? We are neck deep in debts. I feel I have already failed terribly in bringing a healthy child to this world, I can't fail again. This is the last chance and I can't let it go. Doctors say that he has a good chance of recovery if he gets treatment.

How can you help

We need Rs 10 lakh to continue the treatment without which he cannot survive. Please help me to save my son. I can't imagine going back home without him. Our life will never be the same without him. Your support can save his life.

Baby on monthly check ups. Health is fine . However the development is quite slow. He is taking time to stand up and all. The doctor said we need to take care of him very closely for the next 2-3 years. Hence we are very regular with the check ups . Recent picture of him.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for your overwhelming support. We really couldn't have come this far if we didn't have your support.

Our llittle baby is doing much better now. It gives me immense pleasure to inform you all that the baby is able to breathe on its own. We have also been able to feed milk to the baby successfully and the baby could digest it.

The doctors have prescribed medicines for better breathing, pneumonia and the blood clots in the brain. We've an appointment with the doctor next week, when the doctors will take a call on the various tests to be taken (MRI, PET SCAN, CT SCAN).

We are hopeful about our baby's recovery.

Thank you all once again for  your constant support.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the wonderful love and support that you have shown towards Surya Teja. He is doing better now compared to earlier. He was on ventilator support and other medication. Which was reduced gradually as his condition improved he was weaned from the ventilator and shifted to non-invasive ventilation with a mask.

However, he had episodes of wheezing and pneumonia. His antibiotics are upgraded and nebulisation, chest physiotherapy was continued. He was started on continuous feeding which is being tolerated well. Currently, he is on non-invasive ventilation.

He would require ICU stay for next 6-7 days and ward stay for another 1 week if his condition remains stable. Thank you all once again. Please do pray for his health and speedy recovery. Will keep you posted.
