Apurva Khadtale

Apruva Khadtale, only five months old from Nashik was born with a complex heart disorder called Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC). After birth she showed difficulty in breathing and also in taking feed. Slowly with time, she started also turning blue. Her parents Abhijit and Poonam took her to a local pediatrican who confirmed that the baby was suffering from a heart problem and he advised them both to take her to Mumbai for further treatment. Both Abhijit and Poonam were totally lost on what their next steps should be. Every day is a struggle for them, and now things seemed even harder than before. They had so many questions, yet no answers. In TAPVC, the Pulmonary Veins from the lungs terminate in the right atrium instead of the left. As a result of this, the pure and impure blood mix and less oxygenated blood flows in the body. Also, the right side of the heart is enlarged as there is excess blood flow to the right side. The doctors from Jupiter Hospital go to Nashik as a part of their outreach program. Their pediatrician got in touch with the parents and asked them to consult the pediatric cardiologist from upiter Hospital. An Echo was conducted and the same diagnosis was made. The parents were counseled and told that surgery was the only option to save their child. Abhijit, was not in the position to afford the cost of surgery – it was too steep for him as he earned Rs 5000 per month as a guard in a factory with which he supports his wife and two children. The child was operated at Jupiter Hospital, and has had the surgery. He is now on a road to recovery with thanks to the support you have shown towards our cause to Save Little Hearts.
