After Nakuul Mehta, his wife Jankee and son Sufi test positive for COVID-19; See Post
Nakuul Mehta was diagnosed with COVID-19 few weeks ago and he had quarantined himself. His wife Jankee shared the news about her and their son Sufi testing positive for COVID-19. They had tested positive couple of weeks after the Nakuul. Jankee shared in the post about the tough times she had to deal with alone as she rushed her son to hospital in the middle of night.
In the post shared by Jankee, she shared in detail about the problems she had to go through when her son developed a high fever. She mentioned about taking him to hospital alone and staying in the hospital till his fever came down.
Jankee shared in the post, “I somewhere always knew that a virus like Covid will get to most of us sooner or later, but what actually went down last week was something I did not foresee. While most of you may know that my husband tested positive 2 weeks ago, i also got the symptoms a couple days later. I thought not attending my sister’s wedding was the worse that covid could do to me, not realising that what I was about to experience in the coming week were to be the hardest days of my life, yet. Sufi started developing fever a day after I tested positive & it refused to come down inspite of water sponges & medication.
We rushed him in the middle of the night to the hospital when his fever crossed 104.2 & what followed were very hard days in the Covid ICU with my baby boy. My fighter went through it all. Right from being rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, to him getting pricked 3 IVS, a bunch of blood tests, RTPCR, bottles of saline, antibiotics & injections to get his body temperature down. Sometimes, I wonder how did this tiny human get so much strength to face all of it? His fever finally broke after 3 days. Having to single handedly take care of Sufi 24/7 at the hospital felt exhausting. Little did I realise that a huge part of the fatigue & exhaustion was also because I was positive too. I will be forever grateful to my nanny who agreed to step in to the Covid ICU & take care of Sufi after the first two days as my body had almost given up.
Sufi’s pead @sonalsaste , the entire staff at SRCC Childrens hospital & Dr. @samdanivinit. I cannot thank all of you enough for the timely treatment & giving us the courage to fight this. Of what we have read, Omicron is supposedly milder on adults, but to all of you with babies please do not put your guard down. Not now. Our babies cannot wear masks or get vaccinated so we need to be all the more cautious as we are coming back home to them. The idea of sharing this fight has been to make sure I can extend this awareness, even if it’s to just 1 more parent. Also Sufi turns 11 months, today. Thank you my superhero for inspiring us by your resilience & that goofy smile which makes every storm seem so trivial in comparison.”
