s.O.s: Hole in the heart: Baby Mutiyat, needs N2.3m for surgery

Mutiyat and her mother
This is a very tough time for Yussuf Biodun, a barber, and his hawker wife, Kehinde, as one of their children, Mutiyat, is battling with a hole in the heart.
Doctors at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, confirmed last year that the 18-month-old has the disease, after a series of tests.
That was after the parents had taken Mutiyat for tests and treatment at the likes of Mecure Laboratory, Oshodi; and Massey Street Children Hospital, Lagos.
Kehinde said she first noticed that there was a problem when Mutiyat was about 15 days old.
“We discovered that her neck was unsteady each time she was breathing. We went to a health centre, from where they referred us to Massey Hospital.”
For a relevant surgery in India, LASUTH has said that Mutiyat’s parents need N2.3m.
According to Yussuf, he and his wife have been struggling to keep the child alive since February last year, when they were first told they needed the sum.
He said that every 15 days, they spent about N5,000 on treatment and drugs.
As a result, the Lagos-based couple, who are from Ila Orangun, Osun State, said they have run out of cash.
They are thus soliciting the support of individuals and organisations, so that they can take Mutiyat to India for the surgery.

Their account details are: Biodun Yussuf

MUST READ [YOUR HEALTH]: Managing hepatitis B virus (2) #HepatitisBVirus

Image result for hepatitis b virusImage result for african patients in the hospital

In the first part of this piece Read [ Managing hepatitis B virus 1], I narrated the story of Mr. A.O. who declared that he was cure of hepatitis B virus disease. This has generated a lot of feedbacks from readers, some of whom called to say they have been infected, and would like to know the cure for hepatitis.
If you are newly diagnosed as having a hepatitis B infection, you will be advised to have regular blood tests and physical check-ups.
Once your symptoms get better, you will need further testing to check that you are free of the virus and have not developed chronic hepatitis B.
Those with chronic hepatitis will need regular blood tests to assess the state of their liver, an ultrasound or a Fibroscan, which measures liver stiffness, and possibly a liver biopsy. This is to assess whether the virus is currently damaging the liver and how much damage has been done.

There are now very effective medications that can suppress the virus for many years in the life of the patient. The drugs can slow down the damage being done to the liver, allowing the body to repair itself. However, it is unusual for this treatment to clear the virus permanently.
