Telagana, July 10: Call it a miracle or not but the love and prayers of a mother brought her son from the jaws of death in Telangana.
Eighteen-year-old Gandham Kiran was suffering from dengue and jaundice and was also detected hepatitis B positive. His condition was serious. His family, deeply worried by their son’s condition, took him to Hyderabad and admitted him to a private hospital for treatment but his condition remained critical. On July 3, doctors informed Kiran’s mother Sidamma, a labourer, that her son was brain dead and she should let him go peacefully.
The heartbroken mother brought her young son, an intermediate student, to her village Pillalamarri in Suryapet district of Telangana but she refused to give up hope. Even as the doctors advised her to take the teen off life support, she stayed adamant on saving her child.
Mother’s prayers answered
Late on the night of July 3, the grieving mother’s prayers were answered.
Sidamma noticed tears rolling down from on Kiran’s face and the local registered medical practitioner G Rajababu Reddy was called at once. "He had a very faint pulse. I immediately contacted his doctor in Hyderabad and informed him about the situation. He advised me to give four injections to the patient," Reddy said.
He added that Kiran’s condition improved slowly and steadily over the coming days. "He started showing improvement. On July 7, his condition became stable and now he has improved significantly. He is even talking to his mother," said a happy Reddy, who claims its a first-of-its-kind miracle he has witnessed.
Sidamma, who lost her husband in 2005, cannot stop counting her blessings. Her son is recovering fast. Meanwhile, the incident has become the talk of the town with people hailing the power of a mother.
