After fighting death once, she was healingThis isn’t the first time baby Syeda Ayesha has been in an ICU fighting for her life. In December last year, when she was just 5 months old, she was diagnosed with Viral Myocarditis. It is a condition caused by a viral infection that can affect the heart muscle, reducing the heart's ability to pump and causing rapid or abnormal heartbeats. She was put on a ventilator and she stayed in the ICU for almost a week.
“After she was discharged, we used to go for follow-ups and everything was fine, in fact, it was better. Her heart was improving and healing. All her tests came normal. So we went back to our normal life.” - Shafiya, mother
Just when they thought the worst was behind them, she fell sick againAyesha, now 10-months-old, was just like any other normal child her age, her past medical experience did not hinder her growth at all. She started to crawl and respond to her name. Just when Syed and Shafiya put everything that happened in the past aside, baby Ayesha started vomiting every time she was being fed. Initially, they thought it must be indigestion like it happens to most kids but soon she started gasping for breath and they knew something was wrong.
“We went for a normal checkup, just in case something was wrong but then, she was immediately shifted to the ICU as her heart was not working properly and the blood was not reaching her organs.”-Syed
Her organs are failing and she just had a cardiac arrest
“We went inside to see our daughter. She was a little conscious then. She even held my finger and was looking at me when I called her name. That very evening she had a cardiac arrest. Her condition is getting critical. She is just a baby, she is going through so much pain.” - Shafiya, mother
Little Ayesha’s heart is unable to pump enough blood to her organs and hence led to acute liver and kidney failure. She is currently undergoing dialysis and it is very crucial for her to stay in the ICU to fight her severe condition. It is the only thing that can save her.
