Need help for Arun' s Pre-Term born Baby - story -1


Hello Friends and Well-wishers,


I am Arun Kumar working at Bank of America, Hyderabad, India as a Team Leader. This appeal goes out as a humble request to all our well wishers. On 6th of July’ 2017, we were blessed with a baby boy at Ankura Hospital for Women and Children, Begumpet, Hyderabad, India. But the boy was born as a pre-term 31 weeks baby with birth weight of 1.4 kgs. Baby developed respiratory distress soon after birth with grunting. The lungs were not completely matured for which he was shifted to NICU for further treatment.


The baby needs to be kept in NICU for 3 to 4 weeks at the same hospital. The NICU charges for single day is Rs.13000 excluding any medical investigations conducted and pharmacy bills. For medical Investigations and medicines hospital ise charging another Rs. 5-10K per day, summing up to Rs. 20000 approximately per day. As the baby need to be kept for minimum of 3 weeks (21 days), the total bill would come around 4-5 lakhs.


I hold Medical card from Vipul MedCorp but the Ankura Hospital does come under Network list of Hospitals. So we need to pay the hospital bills by cash. The sum insured is also only 2 Lakhs. We checked the option of moving the baby to another network list of Hospital where we can go cashless. But Doctors advised that moving baby in this critical situation is very risky and if we can take risk then they agreed to move the baby.  In this critical condition we cannot dare to move the baby and take risk, so kept the baby in the same hospital and continuing the treatment.


The Hospital bill for my Wife’s surgery is Rs. 58000 and bills for the baby till today is Rs. 1,30,000.  I have managed to arrange Rs.1.5 lakhs from personal savings, family members, friends, colleagues and by selling the gold we have and paid the bills for wife’s surgery, medicines and some part of the child’s bill till date. Now I am exhausted with all the sources of funds and no longer bear the cost of treatment of our child. Then while searching on Google, I came to know about this Fund Raising campaign and we are desperately seeking help through this forum. Now this is our only hope we have. Kindly help us generously to save our child to reach home safely and healthy.


I am attaching the Interim summary and Bill Estimate documents of the child and the copies of Bill which I already paid for my Wife's discharge.


Through this fund raising campaign we look forward to contributions that are very crucial, however it won’t be the amount contributed, but the mere gesture for which we will be most grateful and indebted for our lives.


Thanks a lot, God bless you all.

Regards.

Arun Kumar

Hello friends and well wishers,


With all your support and blessings, our baby is recovering well.  But on last Thursday we really had a bad time. Doctors told that baby got an infection and also blood platelets count came down very low to 20000. They advised to arrange the O+ve (our baby blood group) blood platelets and referred to blood bank of Sunshine Hospitals, Hyderabad. The staff over there are not at all experienced.  I took six O+ve donors to the blood bank and the staff at blood bank rejected all the six donors stating stupid reasons like veins are not straight,  veins should not be thick,  fat person veins cannot be seen etc.  


I went to blood bank at 12.30pm afternoon and blood platelets were not arranged till evening 6 pm. Then I called our doctor and told him the situation.  Then he advised to come back to the hospital and referred to another blood bank.  I took the same donor to another blood bank who got rejected at Sunshine hospital blood bank.  There they tested the blood sample of the donor and confirmed that he can donate the blood platelets. They also said that if I would come here in the first instance in afternoon they could have handed us the blood platelets in the afternoon itself.  Immediately they started the process and it took 2hrs to extract the required amount of platelets from the donor.  At last, I got the platelets packet at night 9 pm. Then I took that packet and ran to the hospital and I reached the hospital at 10 pm. Sisters immediately transfused 50ml of platelets to our baby.  They transfused the platelets the next day as well.


Now the platelets count came to 1.4 lacs which is an acceptable level.  Our baby is now doing clinically well.  Infection is also under control and doctors advised that treatment would continue for one more week to stabilize the infection.


We appreciate your support and contributions. I am not supposed to ask you for more help.  But in this hour of need,  I request you all to promote the event by sharing this post with your friends and family members on Facebook and other social networking sites,  so that it reaches to a maximum number of people.


Thanking you once again

Arun Kumar
