Aarav has suffered too much at this young ageMeenakshi and Rakesh could not have asked for more when their first child was born. The day they took their baby home was one of their happiest days as a family. The baby kept them on their toes. But when he was just 1-month-old the trouble started. He began vomiting and started severe loose motions. They rushed him to a hospital in Rohtak.
"When you're happy, you don't think about things that can go wrong. What happened with Aarav has broken both emotionally and financially. We called and ambulance and rushed him to the nearest hospital. They put him in the ICU. Even after a few days, he didn't get better and the doctors said that they couldn't help us," said the father.
"We thought we lost our baby"Unwilling to give up, the family decided to move him to a hospital in Delhi. While the family was moving Aarav to Gangaram Hospital in Delhi in the ambulance, his heartbeat suddenly dropped to 70.
"I broke down seeing my baby that way. In that moment, I had given up all hopes of ever again getting to take my baby in my arms and hear him gurgle. I felt like this was the end, and Meenakshi seemed frozen. I suppose neither of us could process what was happening", said Rakesh.
Luckily, Aarav reached hospital safely and his condition was brought under control swiftly. He was still on the ventilator, but he was reviving. As of now, Aarav is out of the ventilator and is expected to recover, provided that his condition is closely monitored.
