Sad News-Sumon Saha

Our precious ten-year-old registered boy child, Sumon Saha who had advance stages of Leukemia passed away today in transit from the hospital in Dhaka to his home in the rolling tea garden of Sylhet, northeast Bangladesh.

When he first went to Apollo hospital in Dhaka, he was admitted directly to ICU on 12 May. After a week, they moved him to a general bed but he continued to need oxygen and AB+ blood transfusions. They where trying to stabilize a number of infections in his body. The doctors had hoped to stabilize him to start Chemotherapy.

However, by the end of May his platelets and Hemoglobin counts became dangerously low. His condition was critical and they returned him to ICU. After ten days in ICU they discharged him from the hospital under his parents care. On the way today, 21 June 2007, from the hospital to his house in the ambulance he passed away. It is about a 6-hour trip from Dhaka to Sylhet.

Please pray for his family. His Dad is a day labor at the tea gardens so he has not received a pay in the last two months. Thank you all who have been praying for him.
