Details of how Faraaz’s health condition deteriorated in the past few days were shared by his family members Farhad Abousher and Ahmed Shamoon. They wrote on the fundraising page that Faraaz had been suffering from a cough and infection in his chest for almost a year. “The coughing worsened recently due to the prevailing pandemic. Looking at his condition through a video call, a doctor recommended that he should get admitted to a hospital. So, immediately we called for an ambulance. However what happened after that has shaken us up to the core,” it read.
The post continued, “While the ambulance was on its way, Faraaz suddenly suffered a seizure. He suddenly started shaking uncontrollably and couldn’t control his movements either. As soon as the ambulance arrived, Faraaz was out on a stretcher and was being lowered into the ambulance when he suffered another seizure. As the ambulance was rushing to Vikram Hospital,Bengaluru, he suffered a third seizure in the ambulance in such a short time span.”
“Faraaz was admitted to the emergency ward of Vikram hospital where we found out that he suffered three consecutive seizures due to a herpes infection in his brain that had spread from his chest. Besides, while he suffered from these seizures, he swallowed the mucous and saliva of his cough which entered his lungs and caused pneumonia in there. Because of this his blood pressure and heartbeat increased massively and he wasn’t able to breathe. He was put in the ICU care where after a series of complicated procedures and heavy antibiotics he was brought to stability,” it added.
The fundraiser’s goal is Rs 25 lakh, and so far, around Rs 2 lakh has been generated.
