The year 2021 brought suffering to a lot of people in the world. With the advent of the second wave of COVID, many people were swept by the fatalness of the virus.
I was one of those people who was detected with COVID in the second wave. I was hospitalized along with my wife, who also had contracted the virus. Fortunately, my dear wife was discharged from the hospital safely, but my condition worsened with time.
As COVID held its clutches tightly on my health, my family raced to arrange the much-needed medication to save me from doom. The hunt for Tocilizimab and Remedesivir was in full swing and I was walking on thin ice. I held on to life and made sure that the ray of hope didn’t dim in my heart.
After spending 10 days on a ventilator, my fragile health was recovering. But my family had already spent more than Rs 16 Lakhs and medical insurance of Rs 5 Lakh on my treatment. By now, the savings of my entire life were exhausted. But I thought, I am recovering, that lifted a huge load off my shoulders and I gazed merely at my family and gestured to them to not worry anymore, as I’d be discharged soon.
When all was going well, that’s when my health worsened again as I was diagnosed with pneumothorax and haemothorax. As my health complications increased, I was shifted to the ICU and was under the radar of constant CT scans, X-rays, and drain tubes.
I am a well-grounded man and my savings were already exhausted, but I needed a huge amount for the treatment- my only key to staying alive. That’s when you stepped in as my savior. It took 305 kind donors like you and 31 shares in total to help me begin a new life. Today I smile gently, remembering you beautiful souls. You saved my life.
Thank you Impact Guru donors for helping me recover from COVID’s complications. I can spend more time with my family and loved ones because you cared. I will forever be grateful to you for your timely help.
