1-year-old Rohit has been on ventilator support in the ICU for over 10 days. He was rushed to the hospital when he went into a state of Anaphylactic Shock, an extreme allergic reaction that can be fatal.
Rohit had only just learnt to crawl, and now he’s fighting to stay alive in the hospital as several tubes and needles are pierced into his tiny body. He needs to stay in the hospital for 10 more days to get better and go back home to his parents.
He Stopped Breathing After Medication And Was Rushed To The ICU
Rohit’s father, Gajendra, and his wife had taken him to the doctor when he began to cry due to a fever. Rohit was first diagnosed with Malaria, and was given medication for the same. Gajendra thought his baby was not in pain anymore.
He was happy to take his now smiling baby home. However, their relief was short lived. Rohit had a severe allergic reaction to the medication and went into anaphylactic shock. He was gasping for air, and then suddenly stopped breathing.
His parents were unable to understand what was happening to their little one.Gajendra and Rohit at home
“He was in extreme pain, but he couldn’t even cry. I will never forget my baby’s face when he went he became so still. We thought we were helping him by getting him medicines for his fever. I didn’t ever think it was possible for something like this to happen. In that moment, we thought we’d lost him.“
But they quickly rushed him to the hospital and Rohit was immediately put on ventilator support. He started breathing again and Rohit was saved.
