It was a very normal day like everyday, my mother suddenly became unconscious, paralyzed and not in senses, her tongue was out between her teeth biting. She was rushed to the hospital where they performed the brain CTscan and declared that she had severe hemorrhagic stroke (brain hemorrhage) which caused paralysis on her left side and ruled out that her condition is critical and may have potential life risk.
Mom was just a sleeping body with no movement of any of her body parts and struggled between life and death for more than 2 months. She went into septic shock, as she had multiple infections in her body: lungs, liver, kidneys, intestinal etc. Her kidneys are almost at the edge of failure, urine Creatinine got higher and higher and she needed dialysis every other day. Her heart pumping effect has been decreased. She was not able to breath properly due to bad infection in her lungs and she was back on ventilator support and BP support (as she had hypotension). Most of the times during her hospital stay, she was under isolated Intensive care unit where the access to see her was restricted. It was hard 2 months where we missed her voice and had no one to talk to and kept on waiting to see her respond or at least have an eye contact. We used to talk with mom passively and call mom multiple times asking her to just open her eyes once and see us.
It took weeks for her to open the eyes and months for her to have an eye contact. She developed bed sores (she suffered a lot of pain and agony), her immunity dropped very badly, which took months to heal the bedsores, due to which her therapies got slowed down. After months of grueling therapy she has regained little bit of movement on her left side, but still has weakness in all of her upper and lower limbs. We consider ourselves lucky if she moves out of the bed - which might take a lot of time and money.
It’s a blessing to see her alive today and recovering. We want to try every possible way and method for her recovery. Your donation will help our family to cover the extremely expensive medical costs and other non-medical costs related to her rehabilitation. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your support.
