Transplant - Day 18

Last night was uneventful. Vishal pulled it off smoothly however problems started cropping up today afternoon. His oxygen levels were going down. His ventilator settings were switched to 70% from 45%. The doctors are monitoring his condition. If the problem still persists then they would have to give him a heavier dose of sedatives. He is still on dialysis. The experiment revealed that his lungs are still injured/infected and healing has not begun fully yet. This is a setback and Swati is very disappointed. The doctors are of the opinion that Vishal still has a long way to go and that this is going to be a slow and arduous process. His White blood cell count is still close to 0. The doctors are hoping that once the count increases, the healing process will be faster. They plan to repeat this experiment tomorrow.

Thank you all for your immense support! Swati and her family are deriving a lot of strength from you. This is an extremely tough period for them and they are very grateful to you all for being on their side. Please continue doing so. God Bless!

Should Disappointment, parent of Despair,
Strive for her son to seize my careless heart;
When, like a cloud, he sits upon the air,
Preparing on his spell-bound prey to dart:
Chase him away, sweet Hope, with visage bright,
And fright him as the morning frightens night!

Thank You!


  1. We all just need to keep the hope..Swati you have to keep your hopes very high the way you have done it so bravely done it so far. You need to be the Savitri to get Vishal back to normal. Just hold to the bolster of God and pray him. Many hands are making the prayers....God is there...Just keep hands high...

  2. Swati, Mahamrityunjay jap has a lot of strength and healing power. If possible you could put the jap on the bedside of Vishal and also if you and your family can recite the jap it would be helpful.

    Hope and pray for Vishal's quick recovery

  3. Hello Swati,

  5. It was really a shocking news as i always had hopes that things will be fine and he will start recovering.

    May his soul rest in peace and may god give strength to Swati and her family to bear the loss of their near and dear Vishal.
