The latest Covid-19 variant Omicron has hit humankind hard and fast. And sadly, the third wave has taken lots of celebrities also under its trap. Amongst these was Bade Acche Lagte Hai 2 actor Nakuul Mehta as well. While Nakuul was on his road to recovery, his wife Jankee Parikh Mehta and son Baby Sufi M also got detected with the virus. In fact, Jankee revealed in an Instagram post how Sufi gave quite a tough fight to the Omicron variant.
Sharing a picture of the little munchkin from the hospital, Jankee wrote a heartfelt note applauding her baby boy fighting the virus courageously.
Check out her post here:
Here’s what she wrote,
I somewhere always knew that a virus like Covid will get to most of us sooner or later, but what actually went down last week was something I did not foresee. While most of you may know that my husband tested positive 2 weeks ago, I also got the symptoms a couple days later. I thought not attending my sister’s wedding was the worse that covid could do to me, not realizing that what I was about to experience in the coming week were to be the hardest days of my life, yet. Sufi started developing fever a day after I tested positive & it refused to come down in spite of water sponges & medication.
She further added…
We rushed him in the middle of the night to the hospital when his fever crossed 104.2 & what followed were very hard days in the Covid ICU with my baby boy. My fighter went through it all. Right from being rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, to him getting pricked 3 IVS, a bunch of blood tests, RTPCR, bottles of saline, antibiotics & injections to get his body temperature down. Sometimes, I wonder how did this tiny human get so much strength to face all of it? His fever finally broke after 3 days. Having to single-handedly take care of Sufi 24/7 at the hospital felt exhausting. Little did I realize that a huge part of the fatigue & exhaustion was also because I was positive too. I will be forever grateful to my nanny who agreed to step into the Covid ICU & take care of Sufi after the first two days as my body had almost given up. Of what we have read, Omicron is supposedly milder on adults, but to all of you with babies please do not put your guard down. Not now. Our babies cannot wear masks or get vaccinated so we need to be all the more cautious as we are coming back home to them. The idea of sharing this fight has been to make sure I can extend this awareness, even if it’s to just 1 more parent. Also, Sufi turns 11 months, today. Thank you my superhero for inspiring us with your resilience & that goofy smile which makes every storm seem so trivial in comparison.
I must say, I am quite inspired by Jankee’s post and Sufi’s courage. And I request each and every one of you to be safe now that the third wave is upon us. On that note, happy 11 months to Sufi, get well soon you cutie patootie.
