I did not have time to think or decide. The doctor came to tell me that I was going to lose my wife and child if I didn’t make a decision. Sumedha was rushed in for an emergency C-section. Our baby was born at 26 weeks. She was just about 600g. Both my lifelines were struggling to stay alive and they were carted away to the ICU while I dropped to my knees.
Our baby came to complete our family. We are scared that we will lose him
I try hard to look through the glass, to catch a glimpse of my baby
I don’t get to see our baby girl. Only Sumedha does. She has touched her fingers. Not me. I cannot even look through the glass. I’m her father and this pain is killing me!
"I know what a mother usually feels at such a time. She has carried our child for so many months. Not being able to hold her should hurt. But it hurts me more. I stand outside in the hospital lobby every day and don’t get to see my child".
We need to keep her under treatment
Sumedha cries every day that her family is not with her through this pain. Her own brother is not coming for help. I’m not talking about money, but she could use emotional support, especially when she has come back from the brink of death and has a child who is still struggling to survive.
