After a series of tests and scans, it was revealed that she has a lung failure and she needs to urgently undergo a liver transplant to survive. Her mother has already volunteered to be a donor and is currently completing a series of tests.

Every now and then, a large amount of fluid is taken out from Sriesha’s stomach. The little one’s stomach is bloated too heavily that she can hardly walk. She has lost her weight completely and looks like a bag of bones with a bloated stomach. She stopped uttering any words and she expresses only through her actions. Doctors said that she’ll be able to talk and walk after the liver transplantation.
