Gaja and Harsha had been playing in their second-floor verandah, and Harsha had just been gone a few moments, when Gaja fell off. He was immediately rushed to Manipal Hospital ER, where he was moved to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Here, tests and treatment were carried on for the first two days, though Gaja was not fully conscious at any point. It was only on the third day that some improvement was seen in his condition.
However, for his parents and for Harsha, watching the ever active Gaja unable to move is really painful. Gaja has been showing progress ever since. Even at his weakest, he shows great responses when Harsha is around and talks to him. He shows rapid eye movement, and even makes efforts to actually get up on his own.
Gaja's father, Mr. Narayan Swamy is a coconut vendor and mother Lalitha is a housewife. Their monthly household income of Rs. 4000 , which is also highly dependent on sales is not enough at this point when the baby's condition is unstable, and developments are slow.
Till now, their bill amount is approximately Rs. 400000 and they might need further Rs. 10 to 15 lakhs depending on the day to day condition of the baby. According to the consultant, the baby's condition cannot be specifically stated as he is highly dependent on the ventilator and may require additional 1-2 weeks of admission, and will later require home care and Physiotherapy.
For Harsha, nothing is like before. He neither plays his favorite game of bat-ball, nor likes going to school anymore, without Gaja's company. When told to eat or play or even go to school, the little one just says "Gaja beka". Your support could help the two brothers unite again.
The specifics of this case have been verified by the medical team at the concerned hospital. For any clarification on the treatment or associated costs, contact the champion or the medical team.
