For the love of Aydin
1 in 120 babies are born with heart disease, and Aydin is 1 of them.
Born in February 2017, Aydin was prematurely born via c-section due to a suspicious heartbeat, his heart stopped 3 times within 10 mins when the OB GYN decided it was time to get him into this world before it was too late.It took the doctors sometime to get Aydin's heart beating, and to get him breathing normally. He spent some time in the NICU with lower sugar levels, but his heart managed to maintain its beat well.
Months later Aydin started showing signs of cardio issues, blueness around his lips and fingers, many lethargic days and unexplained crying.
Without medical aid, Aydin was subjected to many local clinic visits, referrals to government hospitals but the waiting periods between visits was so long that it ended up being a dead end. Files going missing, doctors not being available and so forth.
Aydin recently fell ill, and was taken to the local clinic where he was seen by a doctor after 4 hours of waiting with a raging fever. Doc couldn't find a single reason to explain the temperature spike, a week later of spending each day at the clinic trying to get answers he was given another referral letter to go to a government hospital in 5 weeks time. Doc mentioned reasons to be concerned all lean towards the heart, and that his murmur was elevated.
Aydin needs to see a Paed Cardio Specialist urgently, and there are tests that need to be done.
His lost so much weight in the last 3 months, the blueness persists, his sleeps a lot and refuses to eat.
Please help us raise funds so that we can go to a private cardiologist and get the tests done so that we can finally know exactly what is wrong with his heart and how his heart can be healed.
