“Rithu loves idlis. She is a foodie baby. Most parents struggle with children who are fussy eaters. My child is a blessing, and she ended up with a disorder that affects her liver. She needs to be on a diet at 3 years of age! What’s worse, my son has it too!”
“We took her to the local hospital. The doctor said it was a liver issue and referred us to Rainbow in Hyderabad. After a lot of tests and liver biopsy, we discovered that she had trouble breaking down glycogen. She needed to be on a strict diet. The doctor said, as long as she did not have milk or ice cream, she would be fine.”
“When we returned to the hospital for a followup, we took our younger child, Akhilesh with us. It was horrifying to hear that Rithu needs a liver transplant to survive. It shook us, even more, when Akhilesh was tested and diagnosed with the same disorder. Both need liver transplants. Without it, we will lose our children.”
“Rithu loves going to school. She studies so well and is very social. She keeps looking at her biopsy scar and says she had a surgery. Whenever we go back to the hospital, she asks whether it is for another surgery. She is in so much pain, yet she cooperates. She loves to eat, but we must restrict. It hurts us to see our little girl suffer when she should be pampered. Her grandmother is taking care of both Rithu and Akhilesh now when we are off trying to source funds.”
