6-month-old Monasree is Battling Heart Disease Since Birth, Only A Surgery Can Save Her Life

Like any other parents, Tamil Selvi and Yuvaraj wished to raise a happy healthy child. Unfortunately, their 6-month-old Monasree has been back and forth to the hospital ever since she was born. She was diagnosed with a heart disease while her mother Selvi was still 7 months pregnant. Since that day, the parents have been spending sleepless nights and trying all that is possible to save her.

Monasree has a hole in her heart

Selvi and Yuvaraj were thrilled when Selvi was pregnant for the second time. They were glad that their family would be complete when their 2-year-old daughter Yazhini would have a sibling. Their dreams turned into nightmares when they learnt about the baby’s heart disease.

Each day after that was full of worry. They were relieved when the baby was born alive with no visible symptoms. Doctors even told them that the operation could be done when she grew up. They were hopeful that medicines would cure her and her heart would heal on its own.

Selvi lavished care on her baby. When she was beginning to hope that Monasree was out of danger, she was suddenly gasping for breath leaving everyone in despair. She had to be admitted to the hospital multiple times for breathing trouble, severe cold and congestion. Every time, she needs to be admitted in the ICU with ventilator support for at least a week.
