Story


Hi,


My wife was expected to get delivered a baby, where as per the schedule her expected date of delivery was Sep 15, 2017, but has ultimately resulted in to highly complex pre-matured delivery on July 19, 2017 (i.e. at the End of 7th Month of Pregnancy) & post-delivery our baby is transferred to Nanavati Hospital NICU department for immediate survival treatment.


Baby was born extremely pre-mature (@31.5 Weeks), severe IUGR & Extremely low birth weight of 900gms.

Baby developed spontaneous intestinal perforation (Hole in Intestine) on 2nd day after birth and required laparotomy with resection and anastomosis for the same.


Baby has required 2nd surgery on 8th day after birth, during which ileostomy was done. (One more(Third) surgery is pending, which will happen after 4 to 5 months). Baby was gradually weaned off ventilator. Baby has been detected to have CMV Virus infection. Currently baby is on CPAP support, on IV fluid’s, oral feeds and broad-spectrum antibiotics and anti fungus.


The whole process of treatment took 59 days till today(16-Sep-2017) and still there are more 25 to 30 Days pending.

Total hospitalization expenses till now is reached 17.5 Lacs (@59th Day) & another 8.5 Lacs for next 30 days.

“In totality, it’s going to be 26 Lacs.”


Since the treatment falls under the category of Day one Baby Treatment, which unfortunately doesn’t cover under the Mediclaim policies & since I am Service Class Employee in very small company.


Honestly this was never anticipated & also falls beyond our financial capacity for a middle-class family like me with 4 dependents.


Please help me to pay this hospital expense for uninterrupted treatment & recovery.


Looking forward for your kind support.
