Project Report | Apr 28, 2017
Despite all, Sevastian came to this world!

By Balan Marina | Project Leader

Dear friends, thanks to your help, we raised about $ 280. This money is a part of the amount, required to pay the surgery for Sevastian B.

Svetlana B. , the mother of this boy, told us her complicated motherhood story, which we  turned into one with a Happy end!

“My first pregnancy ended tragically. Next time I was much more careful with myself and my baby. I was determined – I will become a MOTHER.

On the fifth month of pregnancy we learned that our baby will be born with congenital defect – diaphragmatic hernia. We understood that we have to fight for the future life of our baby. Babies with such diagnosis have to be operated in their first days after birth, with long recuperation period after. Learning that, we started immediately looking for qualified doctors. Our doctors told us they could not help in such case. Then we addressed to V.I. Kulakov scientific center in Moscow. Doctors insured us that this defect could be repaired. I have been investigated and was told that operation could be done immediately after delivery.”

On January 16th Svetlana departed to Moscow by train. But on the way delivery started. Immediately upon arrival Svetlana was transported by the ambulance to the hospital.

On January 17th in the morning a baby boy was born having 52 cm and 3625 g. His name is Sevastian. The diagnosis was re-confirmed after delivery – diaphragmatic hernia. There are no other health problem. But, currently situation is still complicated.

On January 20th Sevastian was operated. It was difficult and long ( more than 2 hours) intervention. Baby boy has a severe diaphragmatic hernia, when part of abdominal organs (stomach, intestine, small part of the liver and spline) had been pushed to the thoracic cavity , thus pressing on the heart and left lung. As a consequence, both organs also were moved from their normal anatomic place. During operation all organs were placed back.

Currently Sevastian is under induced artificial sleep for 5-7 days , he needs total rest. While sleeping doctors will be checking on boy’s state and if there are no post-operation complications , in one week he will be reverted to the awaken state and will be assisted in adapting himself to the normal life. Now Sevastian’s state is severe, but stabile.

Doctors are optimistic. Parents are confident in the professionalism of the doctors and do believe that their son has a great future. We also hope that baby will manage to win his disease and will grow as other healthy kids do.

On March 6th Sevastian B.  was checked out from the Moscow clinic! Mother with her little baby returned home. Sevastian is ok, he can eat without problems and all analysis are satisfactory.

His first 45 days of life Sevastian spent in the hospital, where he has had a complicated operation right after his birth. Now, his life is out of danger, he was treated and well taken care of. Now he will grow up the same way as many other children do.

 

We thank you all very much!
