Day before yesterday (06-12-2010), we called baby Mounika (7 Yrs, from Naidupet) and parents to Hyderabad and went to CARE Hospitals, Banjarahills. I and Surendra went to there around 10.30 am (Since we both returned from native places, couldn’t able to be early). Since it was Monday and Dr. Nageswar Rao (Pediatric Cardiologist) is out of station from past 1 week, patients flow was heavy yesterday. So it took complete day to go through all the process.
Doctor done required tests (ECHO Test), and told us baby needs to go for surgery. A medium size hole is there in baby’s heart and due to that functionality of heart is not proper. So she has to be operated. And he asked us to meet Mr. Dr. Jagannath (Surgeon) on the same day evening. But surgeon is not available that time. So I asked babay’s parents to wait till next day and meet surgeon. The next day morning Mr. Suresh (Physician assistant & Arogya Sree Incharge) has followed up with them.
Dr. Jagannath, suggested to get the ECG test for baby. After going through ECG report and other tests, doctor decided to operate baby in the next week. Since baby is very week, parents are very much sacred for this short period. So they requested doctor to give them one month time for operation. Mean time they will try to take care of baby’s health. So doctor gave them some medicines till the time. We are expecting them to come to Hyderabad after Sankranthi.
Also I have shown baby Ch. Maniangel, 5 Yrs (from Warangal) reports to the assistant doctors (Since Dr. KNR was too busy), they asked to get the baby once for echo test, because the current reports are taken 2 months back.Generally doctors prefer to check current status of the patients. So I called them to come on this Saturday.
Impressions on TMAD:
Dr. Nageswar Rao recognized me when I took the baby for check-up. Since he was too busy yesterday, he couldn’t able to discuss with me regarding our group.
Mr. Suresh (Physician assistant & Arogya Sree Incharge), recognized me being there with the patient whole day. And he enquired me and came to know that I took leave yesterday to assist the baby at hospital. So he said, from the next time onwards, get the patient and connect to him and go. He will follow up then. And asked to come in the evening to know status and all.
Since financial background is very poor, they couldn’t able to afford even traveling expenses. So we have arranged as follows.
Travelling from Naidupet (Nellore Dist) to Hyderabad –Rs. 500 (Arranged from a donor (Surendra’s friend))
Food Expenses – Rs. 200 (Given By Shilpa Pagadala)
Travelling from Hyderabad to Naidupet – Rs. 500 Arranged from Team account.
