We have a very special patient admitted in Labour Room today. I had tried all my best to refer her off to Ranchi. But to no avail. They are too poor to go anywhere else.
KD, 23 years old, married for 4 years had already lost 2 babies. She was referred from elsewhere today afternoon. When she reached NJH, she had a blood pressure of 200/130 and was 8 months pregnant with the expected date of delivery sometime in the last week of December.
To complicate matters, she has a platelet of 20,000/cu mm. Her liver enzymes are slowly on the rise. The only consolation is that she is not anemic. I've started her on magsulf and steroids. I hope the platelets will improve and we would be able to do a Cesarian section soon and deliver the baby.
Kindly pray that we would be able to help the mother deliver a live healthy baby and the family will go home blessed.
