Baby girl brings relief to distraught family

09/28/2009 11:02 PM

Abu Dhabi: They came back from India devastated after attending the funeral of their dear one, but the smiling baby has given them much-needed solace.

"Although we were going through an ordeal since her death, the smiling baby and the support from people around gave us hope," said family members of Deepthi Gopinath, 27, an Indian nurse who died of swine flu on September 1 in Al Ain.

The family was upset that they could not fulfil Deepthi's last wish of seeing her newborn baby, as she was connected to a ventilator since her baby's birth on August 25.

Devika, the 34-day-old baby who was in the special care of a hospital in Al Ain, has now been discharged. Although doctors had earlier confirmed the baby did not have any infections, she was under observation during the past one month due to her premature birth.

"I was happy to see her wonderful smile," Suresh Babu, the father of the baby said, just after receiving her from the hospital. He was delighted to learn from the doctors that the baby was healthy.

When doctors said the baby could be taken home, her father and uncle was worried about the absence of a woman at home. But, Maya Suresh, a family friend happily came forward to take care of the baby.

Babu said the support extended by the people around them gave a great relief during the difficult time.

Maya said she was like a sister to Deepthi's family so she took it as the responsibility to take care of the baby. "The baby weighs 2.3 kilogrammes and the doctors said she needs special attention until she gains weight", she said. She can be given vaccinations only after she weighs 2.5 kilogrammes, Maya said. "Until then, we have to avoid visitors etc, but I am sure, I can take care of her like my own baby", she explained.

"I felt very happy while taking her from the hospital and now she is calmly resting in my lap," Maya said while they were going home with the baby.

She said her two daughters, aged eight and ten, are eagerly waiting for the baby. "They have decorated the entire home to welcome her," Maya said.

Maya had to step in to take care of the baby because Babu's sister and children, who were staying with them [with Babu and Deepthi], together in Al Ain did not come back from India after the funeral.

"We did not want to stay at the same house where we had a happy life with Deepthi," said Anil Kumar, brother-in-law of Babu.

"We will be haunted by the memories of her in that house. So we are searching for a new house. As soon as we get one, my wife and children will be coming back," Kumar said. Deepthi's father and mother will also join them to take care of the baby.

Her parents are distraught by the loss of their only daughter. "They may be happy to meet her smiling baby," family members said.
