Allah, I have never asked anything from you, but today, despite all your blessings my first and only son is in great danger. We never expected that the joy of having a child would vanish so soon.
It has only been 5 months since his birth and he is fighting a deadly disease.
A life in danger. How it all started...
My husband was out at work, Ayaan was sleeping peacefully and I was getting chores done. Then out of nowhere, I heard my baby crying. I rushed over to calm him down and noticed that his body temperature was really high.
A thermometer recorded his temperature at 102 degrees celsius.
Terrified, I called my husband home.
We rushed him to the hospital, the doctors prescribed medication but we didn’t notice any improvement in the days that passed.
Instead, I noticed his stomach swelling and his body turning yellow. Clueless, we took him to a different hospital.
Thankfully the doctors were really helpful and took him in immediately. They ran some tests and walked out to us after an hour.
The look on the doctor's faces told us something was very wrong. At that moment, we knew our prayers had not been answered.
"The high fever and swelling in your son’s abdominal region is owing to a failing liver. Your son needs an immediate liver transplant. We are sorry to inform you but without the urgent transplant your son might not survive. We will test to see if you’re a donor match. Let's hope for the best," said the doctors.
Like a hard slap across my face, these words shifted the world beneath my feet. Nothing seemed right.
Then, after a series of tests…
My husband matched as a donor. Relieved, he’s ready and willing to donate a part of his liver to save our baby boy.
I could finally see a ray of hope when reality smashed us again. My son's treatment will cost rs 20.5 lakh ($ 27562.29). An amount we could never dream of.
I am a housewife and my husband sells books. He earns Rs 7,000 a month. His income isn't stable and we have no means to fund our son's treatment.
