Born Just After 6 Months Into Pregnancy, My Baby Is Struggling To Survive

My name is Swapnil Virkar and was recently blessed with a baby girl.  For anyone else, this would have been an occasion of grand celebration, but not for us. Given how our baby was snatched from us right after she was born and rushed to the NICU. Our little angel came into this world way too early and has been suffering ever since. She was born extremely premature (26 weeks) and weighed only 780 grams. The doctors, despite their best effort to postpone the delivery, had no option than to perform a cesarian on September 19, 2017. 

Worst nightmare comes haunting

It all started 12-days before Bharti's premature delivery. She started complaining of the stomach ache as well as bleeding that was unaccounted for. We immediately went to a local hospital but doctors assured us there was nothing to worry about. However, as days went, and Bharti's inconvenience set to increase. That is when we knew something was definitely off. We took her to KEM and got to know that baby had to be delivered prematurely. The doctors told us that if baby stayed even a moment longer inside her monther's tummy, she might die. We weren't even sure if my baby will survive once she got out. But luckily, that brave thing did. She is on respiratory and is being fed by injections. It breaks a father's heart to see her daughter suffering in this manner, but I have to be strong for her sake. I have to aid in her fight and not just sit around and cry!

Family of humble means

I am working on a contract basis for a private firm and earn upto Rs 12,000 per month. My wife is a homemaker. We have an elder kid as well who is very recently started school. We have to look after her expenses as well. The doctors that our little one has to stay in the hospital for at least 2 more months. The estimated cost of her entire treatment is Rs 5 Lakhs. We don't even have any substantial insurance money, as whatever little we had, we spent it during my Bharti's pregnancy. As of now, I have a mounting hospital bill to pay and my baby to save.  But as it stands, I am not able to either of that. It is beyond our humble means to arrange for such a big amount without any outside help.
