They were extremely cooperative during their treatment and their resilience just amazes us. They will be getting twice daily dressings with different topical healing ointments and breathable dressing material. In addition to that, they will be getting adequate fluid therapy, pain medication, antibiotics and specific nutritional supplements to address their high protein and micronutrient needs. We will be providing them soft clean surfaces to prevent any sores.
We are consulting surgeons and other experts and exploring any other options that can help them make a complete recovery.
We will be posting their updates here regularly.
Baadal and Bijlee who suffered third degree acid burns are progressing extremely slowly, but its definitely positive progress.
BAADAL is eating and drinking. His medication and dressing treatments are ongoing and he is extremely cooperative during the same. His wounds are extensive and will take time to heal.
BIJLEE is eating and drinking but her burns are more severe and blood values are not anywhere close to optimum. Even though one of her elbows is completely exposed and doctors feel she requires an amputation, surgery is NOT an option right now for Bijlee for 2 reasons: 1) She cannot be put under sedation and is not fit for surgery 2) She has absolutely no skin left there to suture. Our treatment plan is to currently stabilise her blood values, expedite the healing process and keep infection under control. She is very critical.
Help has been coming in generously and we thank every single person who has enquired and extended help, but their treatment is going to be a long and extensive process and we need all the help we can get.

These two have made such positive progress in just 12 days and we thank every single person out there who have sent in funds and good wishes for them. These funds have enabled us to get them the best possible care, wound healing medications (collagen etc.) and maintain sterility (to avoid life threatening secondary infections).
*BAADAL* has made excellent progress! His burns are healing well, he is eating well and his blood tests are looking better. He is still kept in ICU however, we do take him out for extremely short periods and let him have quick pee! He's starting to show personality and tries to make a dash and run around. We are waiting for the day we can allow him to do so freely!
*BIJLEE* is making very slow progress. However, her tissues have finally turned nice and pink and that is a great sign which shows positive healing. Her exposed bones are covering up with the collagen used on her twice daily. She even attempted to stand up yesterday!! She was starting to get sores and thus we are shuttling her between a water and air bed. Doctors are still vary about her standing and walking but those calls are left for a little later when her blood reports are better and for a point where we can consider surgical procedures on her.
They still have a long way to go before their wounds heal and Bijlee can walk. Funds have been raised to suffice for 1.5 months, however, it is going to take minimum 4-5 months more for them to make a complete recovery.

While Baadal is doing very well, Bijlee's condition has been extremely critical since yesterday. We are currently prepping for her blood transfusion which will happen now in an hour.
There have been a lot of you out there, who have been looking out for these two, please pray for Bijlee today. We are doing our best and hoping she continues to fight just as we are.
