"I remember, it was the day after Navratri started. I and my wife were in the ambulance with our daughter, going around hospitals, begging doctors to save her life. I remember how my daughter was crying for water, but we weren't allowed to give her some. Despite being her parents, we couldn't do anything but cry at the sight of our baby's listless body. Our little angel was fighting for her life that day, and we couldn't even give her water."
"We reached the hospital at midnight, and she was being continuously treated for next 5 hours. When the doctor came out of the ICU, he told us that our baby was critical and had to be put on a ventilator. He said that he has done everything he could, and now we can only wait and pray for her life. She was on the ventilator for next five. I think all we did in those days was to sit outside the ICU and cry", said the father.
"I was so scared for my baby. A few days back she was jumping around the house, throwing tantrums and creating havoc, and now she might end of losing her leg. Never in our worst nightmare did we think such a day would come to pass", said the mother.Thankfully, the baby was able to avoid amputation and started showing overall improvement. After a total of 20 days in ICU, Aaardhya was finally shifted to the general ward. But the trouble is not over yet. Her leg is still healing and isn't completely out of danger. She hasn't started talking again and is still not able to identify her parents. For her to be able to walk again, it is imminent that she stays for up to 10 days under the hospital's round-the-clock supervision and care.
"We are trying everywhere but no one is ready to give us any money. I don't know how will we manage to bring our baby home", said the father worriedly.
