Muscat: Motherhood is all about caring. It is said that motherhood is where all the love begins and ends.
“I would do just about anything my kid wants. For him, there’s nothing which I can’t do,” an expatriate mother in Muscat who is readying herself to donate her organ to save the life of her three-year-old boy, said.
According to medics, Niketh, the boy, is suffering from an inborn error of metabolism resulting in recurrent crises and requiring treatment at hospital.
“Everyone is surprised about how I am taking care of him. When we found that he is not well and needs 24-hour attention, I gave up my job to take care of him,” Niketh’s mother said.
“As his talking ability and motor ability are a little slow when compared to other kids of same age, it is quite difficult to understand his needs. When he is hungry, he shows signs of being disturbed. In the initial days, it was quite difficult for me to understand, but now I am able to understand his needs. I am always present to take care of him, even at the cost of neglecting his elder school-going sister,” Niketh’s mother added.
The child suffered developmental delay and is on an NGT feeding through a plastic tube inserted through the nose, past the throat,
