“His fever was not getting any better despite all the medicines. So we decided to take him to a bigger hospital. We took the first bus to the city in the morning, but on the way he started gasping for breath and then... then he fell unconscious. It’s been 11 days and he hasn’t opened his eyes.” - Lavanya, mother.
Lavanya's baby boy is suffering from Pneumonia. Though a very common and easily curable disease, the baby's condition got serious very quickly. The disease is now threatening to take away this 2-month-old's life. Without continuous support and PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) treatment, he will not be able to make it.
We haven't even named our little boy yetShankar and Lavanya were ecstatic when they held their newborn after 5 years of marriage. They felt like their prayers were answered but now they have to pray again, as they run from pillar to post. Now they pray that their child stays alive.
“It’s been so many days since he opened his eyes. He is just lying there with all these machines attached to his body. I can’t help but cry looking at my little boy. We haven't even gotten to name him yet..." - Radhika, mother
